Watches have certain terms which people must get themselves acquainted with before they go shopping. Here are some of those terms.
Movements: This is the engine of the watch that is what makes the hands of the watch move to every second, minute and hour. There are two categories of Movements, Mechanical and Electronic.
• Mechanical movement is the oldest of all watch movements. It is the most traditional and sought after type of movement. Mechanical Movement derives kinetic energy from a tightly wound coil, or mainspring, which is either wound by hand or automatically via a pendulum that remains in motion while the watch is on the wearer's wrist.
• Electric movement functions by sending electrical signals from a battery to a small quartz crystal. This is why it is commonly known as a quartz movement. The crystal vibrates at a consistent rate, making quartz movements highly accurate. However, a standard battery will need to be replaced every 3-5 years by a knowledgeable person.
Hands: These are the means by which the time is indicated. Standard watches have hour and minute hands, often with the addition of a seconds hand. Particularly useless watches have no hands at all.
