Quartz Watches

Quartz Watches are basically a type of battery powered watches. They are often lower cost in maintenance compared to handwound or automatic watches but have the need of battery replacement. 

How do Quartz Watches Work?

Inside Quartz watches you will find a piece of a quartz crystal that basically acts as the beating heart of the watch. Quartz has the characteristic that, when an electrical current, for instance a battery, passes through the crystal, it vibrates at a very precise frequency. 

These vibrations make sure that the electrical current gets translated to a very accurate ticking. This ticking gets transmitted to the hands to make sure your watch will always keep the correct time. 

Features of Luxury Quartz Watches

Because Quartz watches only rely on an electrical current, they often are more accurate than mechanical watches. Quartz watches typically have a deviation of only a few seconds per month. This type of accuracy would be for a mechanical watch almost impossible. Another key feature of Quartz watches is the production cost and the price point. 

Because there are a lot less parts needed for a Quartz movement the production cost is significantly lower, hence the price of a Quartz option is often lower. Quartz watches also offer a lot of convenience. Never having to worry about setting your watch to the correct time, that would only be possible with a Quartz watch. It also is a lot less sensitive for impacts of the watch.

History of the Quartz watch: Quartz Crisis

The first commercially available quartz watches date to the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. In 1969 Seiko introduced the Quartz technology to the market with their Seiko Astron. Seiko was way ahead of its time, as the rest of the market was very invested in the production of mechanical watches. Because this disruptive invention, a lot of watch brands struggled to keep their heads above the water, because they could not battle against the low production costs of these Quartz watches. 

A lot of Swiss brands faced financial troubles and had to cease operations. Such brands as Blancpain, Universal Genève, Zodiac and Tissot. Blancpain, Zodiac and Tissot got revived later. For instance, Blancpain and Tissot got revived by the nowadays well known ‘Swatch Group’ and still sell sought-after luxury watches.

Care and Maintenance

Caring for your quartz watch is essential to keep it running smoothly. Although quartz movements have fewer moving parts compared to automatic watches, regular maintenance is still important. 

Ensure your watch receives proper care, including occasional battery changes, as well as routine cleaning and servicing. We recommend having your modern quartz watch serviced every few years to keep it in pristine condition. This will help maintain its accuracy, functionality, and longevity.

Pricing of Quartz Watches

When it comes to pricing, quartz watches generally fall within a more accessible range compared to their automatic counterparts. The precision and reliability offered by quartz movements make them a popular choice for many watch enthusiasts. 

Entry-level luxury quartz watches can start around €1,000 and go upwards depending on the brand, materials used, and any additional complications.
