Typical problems with quartz watches

 

Well, who doesn’t know. The new watch on the wrist looks really good and makes a difference. Until you accidentally reach the next wall and the glass suddenly shows visible streaks or scratches or even breaks due to various causes is annoying. Another problem are often the built-in movements, which are of poor quality and have to be readjusted more often than allowed within 2-3 years. Also in the area of the belt it is not helpful if no easy replacement function has been installed and the belt looks worn after 3-6 months and should actually be replaced quickly.

Quartz Watches for Men – What to Consider Before Buying

 

When buying a high-quality quartz watch for men, there are some factors to consider that have a significant impact on the quality of the watch. We have listed some criteria for you and it is actually possible to get high quality watches that are affordable and still have some gimmicks. Just because a watch is expensive doesn’t mean that the best components have been used. In the following you can find some important information about individual components and what they should meet.

The bracelet of the watch

If the bracelet is made of leather, it should sit comfortably and a double seam should be used in the areas that are frequently used (e.g. clasp). With a metal fastener, the alloy should be of high quality and the paint should be robust, because chipping after a short time is very annoying and ruin the aesthetics. Watches with interchangeable bracelets are practical, they ensure a quick look change and thus provide variety. You can find out more here: “ Watches with an interchangeable strap “.

The watch glass

Sapphire crystal is the undisputed best glass on the market as a component of a watch. It is much more break-proof than other glasses and is scratch-resistant. Closely behind is a combination of hardened mineral glass with a sapphire coating. Third place is the mineral glass, it is also by some manufacturers such. B. Seiko known as Hardlex glass. It is harder than window glass and the breaking strength and the scratch sensitivity are improved by treatment with oxides and using chemical processes. But even after these treatments, the mineral crystal cannot keep up with the sapphire crystal. Other watch glasses are acrylic and plexiglass, they are relatively cheap to manufacture, but do not have high scratch resistance.

The movement

It is advisable to pay attention to the quality of the movement, otherwise you will have to accept a high rate deviation and the clock will have to be reset frequently. Swiss watch movements such as Ronda , but also the Japanese clockworks Miyota or from Seiko . These contribute significantly to the long life of the watch

The water protection

The manufacturers indicate how water-resistant the watch is in ATM.
1 ATM
corresponds to 1 bar water pressure
3 ATM
is the minimum value that a watch should have, because this is against protection against water splashes. Nevertheless, contact with water should generally be avoided.
5 ATM
correspond to protection against sweat and the flow of water when showering

correspond to protection during swimming, rain, washing up
20 ATM
is the best that a watch can offer in terms of water protection, because it can withstand longer dives unscathed.

The clock height

How the quartz watch works

For all those who are curious, we have again explained a small paragraph of knowledge that illustrates how a quartz watch works. Compared to the mechanical watch, the quartz watch only deviates a few seconds per month. But how is that possible? A quartz watch consists of the movement and the battery. So it works through a circuit. The battery supplies the watch with electronic energy, which sets the gears in the movement in motion. A tiny component in the core of the watch ensures that the gears run precisely: the Quartz crystal . It acts as a regulator for the flow of energy, transmits the impulses to the pointer and is shaped like a tuning fork. It gives the clock, so to speak, almost exactly the beat. In connection with the electronics of the clock, the impulse is passed on to the gear train and the hands move with it.
