The reason to get an automatic watch is not practical: it's the love of the mechanism and heritage of fine watchmaking. When you buy and wear an automatic, you understand that it'll be more expensive in the short and long term.

I have both. My daily is a quartz Alpina Avalanche chrono. It's really durable while I bang around the shop. I also have an Avalanche automatic chrono (I like Alpina, as you can tell) that I wear on nice occasions.
