  • (Quartz Movements) I would guess that quartz will be well known to most people. It’s what you will find in 90% of the malls across America in stores like Sears, JC Penny, Walmart, Target and the like; brands like Fossil and Armitron dominate this space with less expensive, battery-driven watches
  • A movement powered by a quartz crystal. Quartz crystals are very accurate. They can be mass produced which makes them less expensive than most mechanical movements which require a higher degree craftsmanship.
  • Refers to watch movements powered by a reliable and accurate quartz integrated circuit.

ISA 1198 Swiss 1-Jewel Quartz Movement
ISA 1198 Swiss 1-Jewel Quartz Movement
As fitted to a 1992 'Rotary' wristwatch (and some 'Everite' models; an H. Samuel 'own-brand'). Quite possibly the worst movement I've ever seen in a quartz watch! The hour-hands didn't align properly and ran unevenly - an observation made plain when the watch was placed on an audio output transformer fed with a 2kHz sinusoidal signal from an amplifier and oscillator. Overpriced tat, in my opinion. Pentax MX, 50mm lens reversed, flash, Ektachrome ISO100 slide film.
ESA Swiss 0-Jewel Quartz Movement
ESA Swiss 0-Jewel Quartz Movement
My first quartz analogue watch, purchased in 1981. A 'H. Samuel' own-branded watch that cost around ?32.00. The movement is made by ESA, but it looks to have bit made by A. Schilds as well! This was a nicely-made watch and ran perfectly; beautiful. It looks grotty on the photograph; plenty marks from an oscilloscope probe where I've been 'experimenting'. Note the discrete divider chip. Pentax MX, 50mm lens reversed, flash, Kodachrome ISO64 slide film.
