Mechanical watches operate through a complex system of springs and gears.

Manual mechanical watches require regular winding by the user, whereas automatic watches wind themselves as a result of the wearer's natural wrist movements.

Quartz watches are powered by a battery that sends an electric signal through a small quartz crystal, vibrating consistently at a high frequency, which powers the movement of the watch hands.


Longevity: With proper maintenance, mechanical watches can last for generations, making them heirloom pieces. Quartz movements are less susceptible to environmental factors like temperature and position changes, making them more reliable for day-to-day wear.


Accuracy: While high-quality mechanical movements can be very accurate, they are generally less precise than quartz movements, losing or gaining a few seconds a day. Quartz watches are highly accurate, usually only gaining or losing a few seconds per month.


Maintenance: Requires regular servicing every few years to clean, lubricate, and possibly repair its mechanical parts. Beyond battery changes every few years, quartz watches require minimal maintenance.
