What is a quartz movement?
Watches and clocks with a quartz movement are driven by a battery. This sends an electric current through quartz crystals that will vibrate. These vibrations are passed on to the movement. Because the vibrations have a fixed frequency, watches and clocks with a quartz movement are extremely precise.
