Quartz Watches VS Mechanical Watches!

Quartz Watches VS Mechanical Watches!

I know you know luxury watch brand TAG Heuer Watches , Breitling Watches or fashion brand Michael Kors Watches; but I will tell you something about Quartz Watches and Mechanical Watches!

1. Simple tips to distinguish quartz Watches and mechanical watches
Usually, you can get the point via simply looking for the engraved text on back of the case, "QUARTZ" or "AUTOMATIC". Besides, you could also distinguish them by the way the indicators go, mechanical watches tick, though, quartz watches hand sweeps smoothly instead of ticking once every second. Occasionally, if the watch ticks two or four seconds at a time, dont worry, it's still a quartz watch! But take note: when this happens, you may check your battery, consider replacing it since some high grade watch informs you it's power off via ticking two or four seconds at a time.

2. The Pros and Cons of Mechanical Watches:
Mechanical could be divided into the following two: Manual winding up and Automatic. They're both powered from the spring integrated into watch movement, the spring drives gears and indicators, but different where their power come from. The former can be winded up manually, their movement are normally thinner than automatic watches, so is the weight of watches. Automatic watches are drived by the power derived from the swing of auto device, thicker and heaver than manual winding up watches.

Cons: Higher inaccuracy than quartz watches, depending on the manufacturing quality and due to the influence of gravitation from earth. Generally speaking, the error for a mechanical watch can be low to S/D(seconds per day), but it's S/M(seconds per month) for a quartz watch!

Pros: If maintained regularly, it can last for rather long.

3. The Pros and Cons of Quartz Watches
Quartz, an white oxide consisted of sio2, vibrates when placed in oscillator circuit, under special condition, it delivers its frequency back to circuit. People take full use of this feature into quartz movement, transfering electricity into kinetic energy via quartz oscillator. One circuit board with resistance and capacitance device, a watch movement is done, then assembled by case, crystal and bracelet, that will be a complete quartz watch!

Cons: Most of quartz batteries last for only one or two years, then you have to replace it with a new item. Second, since quartz watches feature quartz oscillator, which will decay after five to eight years use, and no longer accurate as before, it's time to get replaced, though, due to the development of modern industry, and high human cost, it is not worth changing these small components manually, alternatively, why not replace your watch with a new quartz movement?
