QUARTZ WATCHES

Quartz watches are the most popular watch on the market today. These are the watches that run on a battery. These watches have very few moving parts, a circuit board like a computer, a motor, a coil that is very easily damaged and a quartz crystal. The quartz crystal vibrates at a rate of 32,768 times per second. Wow, who counted that? The coil is the copper colored tube shaped thing in this photo. This becomes damaged if even touched while changing a battery. That is why taking your watch to an actual watch repairman is important. Many times you take it to an inexperienced person and they change the battery, damage the coil without knowing it and tell you, it's not the battery. When really it was just the battery until they damaged the coil.
