In the 1920's the first Quartz were invented. This works by

applying a certain voltage and pressure inside the clock. This will

vibrate or oscillate the Quartz at a constant rate. This vibration

moves the hands on the clock in a very precise manner, making them

very cheap and very accurate. These are the clocks are used

everyday in our houses, offices and schools and in many cases

wrists. There are other types of clocks, such as atomic clocks, but

these are not widely used and are not yet perfected.
