Today, more and more people buy watches. Many people don't know how to choose a watch. What is the difference between a mechanical watch and a quartz watch?Whether it is a quartz watch or a mechanical watch, it has its own advantages and disadvantages, and it also has its own different characteristics. More choices depend on the user's preferences and usage habits. Below, I will introduce their differences.
Simply put, the quartz watch is accurate when traveling, 30 times higher than the average accuracy of the mechanical watch, and the price is low and the style is fashionable. The mechanical watch has high technical content and high playability, and the high-grade mechanical watch has high collection value. All high-end watches are mechanical watches, such as tourbillons, perpetual calendars, chronographs, etc. are the top technology of mechanical watches.
Manual mechanical watch
The manual mechanical watch is one of the most familiar watches. The manual mechanical watch relies on the winding spring of the watch movement to provide power. It does not require a battery and is more accurate when walking.
Advantages: no battery, long service life, accurate travel time, and can adjust the movement speed.
Disadvantages: need to be regularly wound
Automatic mechanical watches
The rotation of the automatic disk in the case is used to drive electrical energy, and the IC is used to control the stored energy. It is necessary to use the movement of the usual wrist to maintain energy production.
Advantages: Exercise is energy. No battery replacement. Eternal power!
Disadvantages: The case is thicker and must be worn for eight hours a day, and maintain a certain amount of exercise.
Quartz watch is a new generation of automatic chronograph watch that uses electronic technology to realize the travel time by using the "vibration phenomenon" principle of the wafer.
A bit: accurate, light, and stylish.
Disadvantages: 2-3 years need to replace the battery, the value is not high enough to show the wearer's temperament and taste.
A mechanical watch with an error of 15-30 seconds per day can be considered normal. The minimum error can be as little as 4-5 seconds. A quartz watch typically has a monthly error of between 15 and 25 seconds; the smallest error is only 5 seconds a year.
How to choose mechanical watches or quartz watches, I believe everyone knows very well, although most people like mechanical watches, but they must buy watches according to their own needs and preferences, do not blindly follow the trend. Only the watch that is right for you is the best.
