How much do you know about stainless steel quartz watches

- Mar 21, 2019-

Many mechanical watch enthusiasts sneer at stainless steel quartz watches. Actually, it's like the quartz storm at the beginning, but it's just another kind of transitional time. With the development of science and technology, more and more time-watching tools are available. Mobile phones and computers are more accurate than watches. Stainless steel quartz watches are more accurate, which is gradually weakening in today's society. But today's mechanical watches and stainless steel quartz watches are positioned differently, just take what you need. Today, I'll give you some knowledge about stainless steel quartz watches.


Quartz Watch (Stainless Steel Quartz Watch)Electronic Watch


First of all, it should be clear that quartz watches are only a classification of electronic watches


Quartz watch is the driving part of the meter which uses crystal oscillator to drive the mechanical gear. It does not need winding, just add batteries. But there is no mechanical part in the electronic meter, it is pure electronic things, mostly using liquid crystal display to display time. So quartz watches must be electronic watches, but electronic watches are not necessarily quartz watches. Simply put, one is semi-mechanical equipment, the other is electronic equipment.


Principle of quartz meter


The core of a quartz watch consists of integrated circuits. Under the power supplied by batteries, the quartz oscillator vibrates and divides the time. The power supply is a small battery with a life of several years. Quartz oscillator converts battery energy into vibration to divide time. Due to high frequency vibration (32 kHz), quartz watches are extremely accurate, with very low annual error: less than one minute per year, i.e. less than one second per day. Because quartz vibrates fairly regularly, even cheap quartz watches do not have an error rate of more than a second in a day.

Characteristics of quartz watches


1. The quartz watch's time-hand is hopping one by one, and the time is very accurate. Generally, the monthly difference is required to be normal within 15 seconds.


2. The core is made of integrated circuit board, which is very easy to assemble.


3. Wear without winding, a battery can generally be used for 2-3 years. But some quartz watches use lithium batteries, which have a long service life and can be used for about 5-6 years.


4. Quartz watches are relatively cheaper than mechanical watches, but some high-end brand quartz watches are very expensive because of the brand's appearance, material knowledge, such as 18K gold or diamonds or precious metals, which results in some quartz watches being much more valuable than ordinary mechanical watches.


Whether you wear or not, a quartz watch will run as long as it has batteries (small reminder: if you don't wear it for up to a year or more, you must take the batteries out, otherwise it will easily corrode and damage the machine core or even the case of the dial because of the leakage of the batteries).


Compared with mechanical watches, quartz watches are more durable, convenient, accurate, richer in style and much cheaper than mechanical watches. Now wearing watches is not only a tool to see time, but also a symbol of one's taste and self-cultivation. Different occasions, clothes, of course, should be matched with different styles of wrist watches to highlight personal taste.
