Watch Education

The Movement

The Movement is the part of the watch that makes the watch "move" or function. A watch movement can be compared to a car; without the engine, a car will not run therefore, without a movement, the watch will not run. There are 4 types of movements: manual, automatic, quartz, and auto-quartz. Manual and automatic movements are mechanical, which means they are both made up of only mechanical parts like gears and springs. Quartz and auto-quartz have an electrical circuit and require a battery to run, but they may also have some mechanical parts.

The Crystal

The crystal is the “glass” that protects the watch face from the elements. There are three types of crystals that are used.
