Quartz watches are considered the most reliable and easy to maintain watches available and at Jura Watches we have a fantastic selection of quartz watches and battery powered watches to choose from.
Many customers decide to wear a quartz watch over a mechanical watch for a number of different reasons. Quartz watches are generally cheaper than those with mechanical movements and are also more accurate. Beside from needing to replace the battery every 2-3 years, battery powered watches also require very little maintenance or service.
Quartz watch movements are powered by an electronic oscillator that transmits an electric current through quartz crystal. This current vibrates at a constant high speed of around 32,768 times a second until this frequency is released through a small stepping motor which in turn makes the dial features of the watch move.
