How Quartz Watches Work

During the 1970s, the "quartz watch" burst onto the scene as the newest high-tech gadget. Initially, these watches had red LED displays and they cost around $500 in the United States. Since then, the quartz watch has evolved so that either an LCD or a traditional mechanical (hour and minute hand) movement displays the time, and the price has fallen dramatically. It is not uncommon to find quartz watches given away for free in boxes of cereal!There are also some quartz watches from Zenith replica,Hublot replica,Ferrari replica watches Breitling replica,U-Boat replica,Bell&Ross replica,Patek Philippe replica and Omega replicas.If you don't want a quartz watch,you can put your eyes on the Rolex replica,Porsche Design replica and Richard Mille replica.

Have you ever wondered why it is called a quartz watch? Or why quartz watches are so much more accurate than wind-up watches?
