WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN AUTOMATIC AND QUARTZ WATCH?
An automatic watch movement, also known as a self-winding mechanical movement, releases energy from a coiled mainspring through a series of gears and wheels that drive the watch hands. Unlike a manual mechanical movement, it does not require regular hand-winding – the arm motions of the wearer during normal daily activities are usually sufficient to keep the movement running. In a battery-powered quartz movement, technology developed in the 1960’s, time is “tuned” to and precisely measured by the extremely rapid and consistent vibrations of a quartz crystal.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CHRONOGRAPH AND CHRONOMETER WATCH?
A wrist-worn timepiece with a stop-watch function – a timer that can be started and stopped to measure the duration of an event – is called a chronograph. It may have a mechanical or quartz movement. A chronometer is a fine Swiss made mechanical timepiece that has met very high standards of accuracy, as set and certified by the COSC, an official watch institute in Switzerland.
