Thanks for the feedback!
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 whi…ch can be used to power a tiny motor to turn the hands of the watch.

Quartz belongs to the hexagonal crystal system.
It depends on what you mean. Are there quartz crystals on earth that are growing today? Yes. Is that quartz crystal in your rock collection still growing? No. Quartz cry…stals often form when water with super concentrated silica in it comes into contact with a surface (such as a very small crystal) onto which the silica can precipitate. Crystals also form when magma/lava cools and the different elements in the mixture differentiate into various minerals.
you find it almost everywhere in the world quarts is located on the earths surface
Hexagonal. Trigonal Crystal System.
Quartz crystals are the naturally occurring crystalline structure of the mineral (quartz) with an atomic arrangement of silicon and oxygen, chemical formula SiO2, forming in t…he hexagonal crystal system.
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…ing a rotor. An automatic watch is wound by a rotor that tightens the mainspring, it can also be manually wound by the crown.

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… watch uses a balance wheel and hairspring. Hand-winding the mechanical watch powers the movement. For more information please refer to the related link below:-

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… resonate when stimulated. Electronics in the watch use the crystal in an oscillator circuit to produce a frequency, typically 32,768Hz. This can be divided down using electronic counters, to give one pulse every second. In an analogue watch, this one pulse is applied to a stepper motor which moves the second hand, one second. Gears from the second hand drive the minute and hour hands like a conventional watch. Digital watches use an LED or LCD display, driven by counter circuits that advance one second at a time.
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…urrent. When current is passed through a quartz element, it vibrates, which in turn puts some current back into the circuit. This creates a feedback look that creates a waveform in the electrical signal; this wave can then be used as a clock by using electronic components to measure the number of wave cycles that have passed. This means that quartz is an integral part of any timing circuit, and timing is important for watches, computers, and anything that requires coordination between different parts.
