  • 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.
  • (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.

Sunset Beach
Sunset Beach
Sunset Beach, Cape May, New Jersey Sunset Beach is one of my favorite places. Besides having unusually beautiful sunsets over open water (not normally visible on the East Coast), Sunset Beach has three things: the remains of the concrete ship "Atlantus", Cape May Diamonds, and the summer evening Flag Ceremony. All this, and free parking, too! Atlantus, the concrete ship in 1917, the United States joined World War I. Ships were quickly needed to transport soldiers and supplies to Europe. As an alternative to using steel, several ocean-going ships were made of reinforced concrete. They worked, but evidently were too slow to be economical, and were not used for very long after the war ended. In 1926, it was planned that one of these, the Atlantus, be used as part of a Ferry slip. It would be towed to a point near Cape May, and then purposely sunk so that a roadway to the ferry could be built over it. However, there was a mishap, the boat got stuck on a sand bar near its final destination, and there it remains, to this day. Today, due to the wear and ravages of time and the water, it takes a bit of imagination to recognize the Atlantus as a ship. Cape May Diamonds OK, they're not really diamonds, they're quartz crystals. But it's still a neat thing to try and find them on Sunset Beach. Just sit down on the beach and pick up a bunch of pebbles; you'll probably find at least one "diamond", and they're free for the taking! Cape May Diamonds can actually be polished and faceted, and made to look a bit like the real thing. Summer Evening Flag Ceremony It's a Tradition. Every sunset, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, there's a ceremony. It goes like this: first, Marvin Hume, the owner of Sunset Beach (which includes three gift shops and a snack bar), asks for children to volunteer to help lower the flag. Many families reserve a night for their children to lower the flag a year in advance. The children are told that there is a proper way to fold the flag, and that they will be shown how to do it. The flags at Sunset Beach are special. They are all U.S. servicemen's casket flags. When you visit, ask Mr. Hume about some of the stories behind these flags, and how he came by them. As the sun sets, the pounding of the surf is joined by Kate Smith singing "God Bless America." A crowd gathers, and the National Anthem is played. Some people salute. Then Taps is played, and the children lower the flag, being careful to catch it so that it doesn't touch the ground. The children then fold the flag under the instruction of Mr. Hume, as the crowd wanders back down to the beach to watch the setting sun, the waves, perhaps a far-off ocean-going ship or the Cape May Ferry, or possibly to resume looking for Cape May Diamonds.
Hampden-Canton pendant
Hampden-Canton pendant
The Hampden Watch Company was formed by Don J. Mozart in 1864 in Providence, Rhode Island. In 1888 Mozart built a factory in Canton, Ohio and moved watch production there. He sold the company to Armen Hammer in 1930. Hammer moved the company to Russia where it became known as the Amtorg watch company. This piece, photographed without the chain, begins with a genuine antique watch finding from the Hampden-Canton watch factory. I've set it on a 100% brass bamboo-edged bezel made from the old tooling with a brass ox/antique black finish. To top it off I used an onyx cabochon and two crystals (not Swarovski sorry but this piece was getting to be too expensive). I've made some earrings to go with it -- they are in a different photo. It will be on a fat retrow vintage chain measuring 15-1/2 inches (if that's not long enough I do sell extenders!) in raw brass. A word on Onyx. A part of the Chalcedony family (quartz) it has been used for its deep black beauty and healing qualities throughout the ages. Said to absorb negativity and increase emotional balance, many people wear it (or carry it as a 'worry-stone') to help relieve stress. It is strongly associated with Saturn so those with a lot of Saturn in their Astrological mojo (like Capricorns) are drawn to it (but it works for other signs too!). Anyway here your onyx is adorned by two lovely crystals and you can see how they pick up the color around them beautifully. This pendant will certainly be noticed and I cannot tell you how striking it looks against a black turtleneck with the earrings accompanying it. A bracelet with onyx, crystal and brass can also be purchased to complete the look. This is a one-of-a-kind pendant that comes with a lot of history -- I have no idea if I'll ever see another finding from the Hampden, Canton company in this good condition.
