Why Is A Quartz Watch More Accurate Than A Mechanical Watch?

Posted on 16 February 2013 by Patrick Kansa



While this particular article verges on the Historical Horology posts I”ve been doing, it”s not quite the same thing – hence it”s showing up today, rather than tomorrow.  Either which way,it”s a fairly informative read – just a little surprising to see watch tech over on Gizmodo.

In the article, it lightly covers some of the history of watch movements, and then dives into how a quartz movement works, and why it”s accuracy is much greater than what a mechanical has on offer.

The article () is a fairly quick read, but it gives you a nice overview.  Of course, most of us already know owning that a mechanical watch is not a purely practical thing to do – but we love “em all the same.
