To make an automatic watch make a sound takes a lot of engineering power to design it. Compared to a digital watch, it would seem to be a waste of time and effort to make such a watch when using just IC chips, you can make a digital watch make amazing sounds. That argument is valid if you are looking at it from a point of view of a tool but from a point of view of a piece of engineering art, this watch reigns supreme.
