  • (Quartz Watches) These watches use a quartz crystal to measure time and a battery for power. You do not need to wind these watches up.
  • A quartz clock is a clock that uses an electronic oscillator that is regulated by a quartz crystal to keep time. This crystal oscillator creates a signal with very precise frequency, so that quartz clocks are at least an order of magnitude more accurate than good mechanical clocks.
  • (Quartz Watches) Watches with analogue or digital display, whose movement is powered by a quartz. The quartz analogue watch: The division of the time functions by means of quartz, whose vibrations are generated by a battery. The analogue time display is shown by electrically driven hands.

Rolex OysterQuartz

USD 20K++ Watch... Source : It would be a mistake to assume that quartz watches were an afterthought for Rolex, even despite the company's overwhelming commitment to mechanical movements. Rolex began their own research into electronic timekeeping in the early 1950s, and was awarded their first patent for an electro-mechanical watch design in 1952. In fact, according to James Dowling in his book The Best of Time, of the 50 patents issued to Rolex between 1960 and 1990, 21 of them were for electronic watches. Rolex was even issued patents in the 70s for digital (LED) watch movements. One such movement made it all the way to the prototype stage and was issued the reference number 7065. Rolex's first commercially available quartz watch was the Quartz Date 5100. Introduced in 1970, this watch shared the Beta 21 movement used by other Swiss companies like Omega and Enicar. Rolex only produced 1000 of these watches before beginning development of their own quartz movement and the watch that would eventually become the Oysterquartz. In 1977, after five years of design, development, and testing, Rolex introduced their first completely in-house quartz movements (the 5035 and 5055) and the Datejust (5035) and Day-Date (5055) Oysterquartz models that would house them. For 25 years Rolex produced the Oysterquartz in Datejust models (17000 stainless steel, 17013 steel/YG, 17014 steel/WG), and Day-Date models in all gold (19018 YG, 19019 WG). Special models of the Oysterquartz were also produced with jeweled dials, bezels, and bracelets. It has been estimated that in all less than 25,000 Oysterquartz watches were ever produced. The last year the Ref 17000 appeared in the Rolex catalog was 2001, and this was also the last year Rolex received any chronometer certificates for quartz movements from the COSC. This means 2001 was likely the last year any Oysterquartz watches were actually produced. The steel/gold and all gold models continued in the Rolex catalog until 2003 when the stock of these last models was finally depleted.
Five Jewels
Five Jewels
Seiko '5' quartz wristwatch movement (type 8123A). Nice Japanese movement used by Seiko in the quartz version of the '5', made around 1983. Note the three-position adjustment lever top-left (+ 0 -) mounted immediately above the divider IC visible through the slots (modern quartz watches have this etched on the PCB and covered with a blob of opaque 'goo'), the 32.768kHz crystal in its tubular case above the 1.55V cell, and the general well-put-togetherness of the modular, and thus easily interchangable parts. Five jewels is way OTT for a quartz movement these days, but the reduction in friction offered by the jewels probably makes the battery last a wee bit longer. Starting to age a bit now, this particular watch gains about five seconds a month.
