What Is The Difference Between A Quartz Watch And An Electronic Watch?
- Jun 22, 2017 -

What is the difference between a quartz watch and an electronic watch? Some friends are really not very clear about this problem. For this watch home to tell you about the difference between quartz watch and electronic form it!

Quartz watch is the drive part of the table is driven by crystal oscillator mechanical gear, do not have the winding, as long as the battery on the line. Electronic watch is liquid crystal display, there is no mechanical part, pure electronic things. The difference between the two can be seen as a semi-mechanical equipment, one is electronic equipment.

First, the energy source

Quartz watch, is able to electronic chip timing, issued timing pulse, drive permanent magnet stepper motor to drive the mechanical pointer display time, but also by the battery to provide energy.

The electronic watch is made with an electronic chronograph chip, with a 7-digit LCD digital display time watch. More features. Powered by button batteries to provide energy.

Second, the origin of the era

Electronic watch originated in the mid-70s, with small-scale integrated circuits as the main body to liquid crystal display display time, that the majority of digital. Electronic watch which actually uses a quartz crystal oscillator to make the reference reference frequency, but the accuracy is not as good as the later arrival of the quartz table reference frequency so accurate.

The quartz watch did not begin to appear in the 1980s. The main feature is the use of high reference frequency of the quartz oscillator, the accuracy is much higher than the electronic watch, the quartz watch when the second hand is a cell jump, travel is very accurate, generally require months less than 15 seconds, there are three and two Two kinds. Good quartz table monthly error of less than one second is definitely not a problem, and no matter how good the electronic table on the error at least a few seconds, dozens of seconds is very common. A battery is generally available for 2-3 years. But some quartz watch with lithium battery, long life, available 7-8 years or so.

Third, shock / water / magnetic capacity

Electronic watch shock capacity is limited, in the strenuous exercise, it is best not to use. Electronic watch waterproof ability is also strong, but should try to avoid water, such as rain to prevent splashing rain. Quartz electronic table magnetic resistance than the mechanical table worse, so pay attention to away from the magnetic field.

With the progress of science and technology, integrated chip is getting smaller and smaller. Electronic watch and quartz table also began to complement each other, some electronic watch also uses a mechanical transmission mode to indicate the time, and digital display coexist, which in some brands of many models can be seen, but it is actually electronic watch The Some Quartz Watch also use microprocessors to increase the calendar function, but not too popular. The purpose of the quartz watch or the use of indicators to display the time to maintain the characteristics of the mechanical watch, it is difficult to completely improve the other display.
