How Watch Movements Work: Quartz vs Mechanical [Infographic]

How Watch Movements Work: Quartz vs Mechanical [Infographic]

New? Start here. | This post contains affiliate links (what is this?)

Have you ever wondered how your watch really works?

I mean… think about it:

How is it so accurate? What powers it? What tiny mechanics allow it to tell the time?

Look:

I’ve said it before, every man should wear a watch. And, I’m saying now, every man who wears that watch should know how it works.

But here’s the thing:

Watches are incredibly complicated. We’ve touched on how they work (here and here), but without a visual aid… it’s tough to really understand what’s going on.

So… to help you see exactly what’s going on inside of your watch, our designer put together this in-depth, but easy-to-understand animated infographic.

What will it show you?

It breaks down the two main types of watch movements (quartz and mechanical), shows you how to tell them apart (just by looking at them), and shows you a detailed breakdown of what makes each type of movement tick (step-by-step).

In Conclusion

Watch mechanics are, and always will be, incredibly cool.

…And now that you understand how your watch works, you’ll have a deeper, more educated, appreciate of what it really is and how it really does it.

The Tribeca ships with two bands… giving you two unique looks

…But this is important:

The 5TH’s timeless watches are only available from the 5th – 10th of every month, on a limited-availability basis (meaning once they sell out, they’re out (which usually happens in the first few days)).

If you’re interested in getting a new timepiece, I can’t recommend The 5TH enough (I wear the Tribeca every day)…

…and I highly suggest you grab one before they’re sold out and while this discount code (MAN10) is still available.
