Quartz Vs. Automatic

watchesWe have not talked about the different ‘movements’ of watches, literally the pieces that make them ‘tick.’ Electronic movements are sparks by reactions from a quartz crystal, while mechanic movements govern both ‘automatic’ and ‘manual’ wind watches. Quartz is the most accurate movement, you do have to change a battery. However, a well engineered automatic can be just as accurate in all practical terms, and they require far more engineering and craftsmanship. The right choice depends on your lifestyle and aesthetics.

Quartz watches are not only less expensive, but also better suited to a highly active lifestyle. For evening wear or the executive boardroom, though, a solid mechanical watch, whether it’s manual-wind or automatic, is the clear choice to turn heads. A quartz dress watch might be a good compromise for those on a budget, but the good news is that we have great discounts on all kinds of movements.

All of our brand name watches are fine, but today we are featuring Ebel. 100% Swiss made, each Ebel watch is the product of a keen eye, a skilled hand, and an unwavering quest for perfection. The movement of an Ebel timepiece is a result of many years of research and development along with each watchmaker’s devotion to finding the technological optimal solution. Here is a fine example: this Tarawa mens’ stainless steel black dial with automatic movement and  a genuine black leather alligator strap.
