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




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.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
