I. Classification of watches
The mainstream watches on the market are mainly divided into mechanical watches and quartz watches, what is the difference between these two kinds of watches? To know the difference between the two, we should first know the working principle of these two kinds of watches.
Mechanical watches are mainly controlled by mechanical oscillators, and then manually wound to drive the large and small gears inside the watch, and the gears drive each other to push the watch hand, which is the usual gear operation we see, which is actually the embodiment of the working principle of mechanical watches.
A quartz watch mainly relies on a quartz crystal to act as an oscillator, which is the heart of the watch, and where does the power come from? It is the battery, so it is more like an electronic watch,replica watches and ultimately it is through the control motor that drives the normal operation of the hands inside the watch.
The advantages and disadvantages of different types of watches
From the above definitions it is easy to see that both quartz and mechanical watches have their own advantages and disadvantages, the specific advantages and disadvantages are as follows.
Advantages of quartz watches.
1, because of the working principle of quartz watches, so the accuracy of quartz watches will be relatively high, many quartz watches can reach within 0.5 seconds of error every day, the error is very low, and the accuracy is basically not affected by the surrounding environment.
2, because the quartz watch does not have to use metal for the movement, so the weight can be made relatively light, wear not too heavy.
3, quartz watch maintenance is also relatively simple, just replace the battery can be.
Disadvantages of quartz watches.
1, the value is not as high as mechanical watches, and the grade is not urgent mechanical watches.
2, not environmentally friendly, constantly replacing the battery although convenient, but the sex pair but pollution of the environment.
Advantages of mechanical watches.
1, due to the principle of mechanical watches, the internal process is more complex, a good mechanical watch can reflect a more high-end process, reflect the level of craftsmanship, so the grade will be higher.
Disadvantages of mechanical watches.
1, the error is slightly lower, which is also determined by his internal working principle, but it is not too big, generally allowed within 45 seconds per day, under normal circumstances, it may be 5 seconds up and down is more normal;.
2, the need for regular winding, maintenance is relatively troublesome.
- Compared with quartz watches, mechanical watches are heavier and relatively heavier to wear.
