Wearing a watch is an elite form of lifestyle. Almost every other person tends to wear a wristwatch. But do we have the idea of watch movements?
Watch movements are something people should consider learning before making a purchase.
What is watch movement?
The working of your watch is defined as a watch movement. Watches become exclusive when the company itself designs their movements instead of getting it done by other sub-contractors.
So there are three types of watch movements.
Mechanical Movement and
Automatic and manual movement
Quartz Movement- Quartz movement is regarded as the most accurate amongst all. It has a quartz crystal and an embedded battery in it. The electric signals sent by the battery electrify the crystal, thus keeping the oscillations in continuity. Furthermore, a stepping motor is present to transmit the electric pulse generated because of continuing oscillations.
There are two types of quartz movements-
Japanese quartz movement
Swiss quartz movement.
The Japan movement watch has its movement developed in Japan. They are recognized through their sleek robotic line of design. They come in small cases and are cheaper. Since these watches consume low power, they are loved by many. Swiss Quartz movement, on the other hand, is automated and assembled in Switzerland. The comfort of wearing luxury and sophisticated designs comes with them.
Mechanical movement- Watch collector’s sight beholds for these watches. These watches are crafted by consolidating exquisite pieces on a timepiece. Thus making mechanical movement watches move into extravagance class.
Automated & Manual Movement- These watches bridle energy from the wrist of a person. They do not need any battery or winding. One should wear these watches regularly to keep the power up without any manual check-ups.
