Watch Glossary

Quartz Watch -

These types of watches are powered with quartz crystal. The crystal receives the power needed to operate the watch through vibrations. The vibration received is converted into an electronic pulse. The pulse then provides power to the stepping motor that moves the hands of the piece. In the 70s, these watches were very popular. During the Quartz Crisis, these watches became rare. Generally, the current provided to the quartz watch comes from a battery.

Quickset Date Feature -

Setting the date and time on a watch is easy with the quickset date feature. To set this important feature, users will have to pull out the crown. Usually, it will only take a few rotations to get the proper changes made.
