Although Yserv may be technically correct that you can't use a hand from a Seiko auto diver on your quartz due to balance/torque issues, there are many, many quartz divers that use hands with a "meatball" out towards the end of the hand (a quick search of the web just showed me examples from Luminox, Freestyle, Citizen, Omega and others). The key seems to be that the hand must be counterbalanced. So you could find an aftermarket meatball hand counterbalanced for a quartz movement and use that. As Les and Gabe pointed out, it's mostly a design decision.
