Best Answer

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.
