exists and is an alternate of .

It works by using the piezoelectric effect: if a small voltage is applied to a specially prepared crystal of quartz it vibrates at a definite and almost constant frequency which can be used to power a tiny motor to turn the hands of the watch.

Why quartz watch runs slow?

they have gears just like mechanical watches and those moving gears  have small amounts of watch oil, after years the oil dries and  slows down the watch and eventually will

Are mechanical watches quartz watches?

No, mechanical and automatic watches are powered by a mainspring, quartz watches are powered by a battery. A mechanical watch needs to be manual wound by the crown and is lack

Is the quartz watch the mechanical watch?

Quartz and mechanical watches use vastly different technology to power movements. A quartz crystal watch uses a tiny battery to electronically power the movement. A mechanical

Do you have to wind a quartz movement watch?

Many analogue watches nowadays use what's called a piezo-electric crystal to generate the energy required to function. In essence a piezo-electric crystal will generate an ele

Why is quartz required in watches?

Quartz, is made up of silica and oxygen,it is one of the most common minerals on Earth. Billions of people use quartz every day, but few realize it because the tiny crystals t

How does a quartz watch works?

Quartz has the property of being piezo electric. It can bend with electricity or produce electricity by bending. Cutting a quartz crytal to precise dimensions will allow it it

Why is quartz good for working watches and other electronic machines?

Quartz is a piezoelectric material. This means that it vibrates when current is passed through it. It also means that when it is vibrated or put under pressure, it generates c
