Quartz Vs Automatic Watches! Which Watch Type To Buy? Mechanical Or Battery Powered

Quartz Vs Automatic Watches! Which Watch Type To Buy? Mechanical Or Battery Powered


Quartz vs Mechanical & Automatic Watches
[0:00:00] [Music]
In today’s video, gents, the difference between quartz and automatic watches. So, a quartz watch by definition is defined
as having a movement that’s powered by batteries, no winding required. Basically, the batteries inside sent an electrical
signal to a quartz crystal. This causes it to vibrate 32,768 times per
second. Those vibrations are then measured, they’re
then converted into a single pulse per second. The result, a very simple watch that is incredibly
accurate. Now, mechanical watches on the other hand
and I’m including automatics, they need to be manually wound or they’re going to use
motion to actually automatically wind them. So, this watch right here, I’ve got to go
through and I’ve got to manually wind it once a day. Now, when I’m winding the watch, what I’m
doing is I’m tightening a spring. That spring is going to power the watch from
anywhere from maybe 24 hours to in some cases 10 days. Now, in an automatic watch, we can actually
sometimes hear a rotor. And, a rotor is basically going to be a device
that turns around and uses your own motion when you’re wearing the watch to actually
automatically wind it. Again, for both types of watches here we’re
putting tension on a mainspring. This mainspring creates a force that’s transferred
through a gear train to something called an escapement which meters out power basically
bit by bit. The math and engineering involved ensures
the power is released in intervals that correspond with our concept of a 24-hour a day. And, gents, if you’re looking for a quartz
or automatic watch, you should check out Vincero, the paid sponsor of today’s video. [Vinchero?], Vincero whatever you want to
say, this is a company founded by guys that love watches. Now, gents, if you haven’t been over to their
website for a while you’re going to want to check it out, they’ve got new collections,
new watches, new looks. So, first up check out their Chrono Collection
316L surgical grade stainless steel. We’ve got a Citizen Miyota Quartz movement,
we’ve got sapphire-coated mineral glass, and a genuine Italian leather band. Next up, I want to talk about the Bellwether
Collection. This is one of my favorite collections. This, I think is an incredibly beautiful watch
comes in a wide variety of colors, you can change out the bands. Yes, the bands are actually you can remove
them right here, they’re interchangeable. And let’s not forget the Kairo series. This is a classic simple elegant looking watch. Guys, when you go through their website you’re
going to see tons of different options from colors of bands to the colors of the materials
used on the case. And, now, go check out their women’s collection. So, gents, if you already own a Vincero, think
about this. Now, you can get a matching one for your spouse,
for your wife, for your girlfriend. 16,000 five-star reviews, a two-year warranty,
a 30-day return policy, free worldwide shipping. Guys, I’m linking to Vincero down in the description. And, gents, I almost forgot, but they are
having their five-year anniversary sale, so make sure to go check out the website. There are no exceptions, everything is going
to be on sale. They only do this once a year, so if you’ve
ever considered grabbing a Vincero, now is the time. So, first up let’s talk about heritage. The quartz watch has been around for less
than fifty years which if you think about it’s pretty amazing as this has become the
dominant watch on the market. Why? It was able to come in and really disrupt
the whole market because of its accuracy and of its price. And by the way, I know some of you watch guys
are going to go crazy because sometimes I use the word mechanical and automatic interchangeably. I know there is a difference. The point is the mechanical watch has a much
longer heritage and that’s why so many people love it. We go back we look at 1275, the English are
credited with coming up with the first mechanical watch. In the 1540’s, we saw the Swiss actually
jump into the game and the thing what we saw here is all of a sudden they started taking
watchmaking and building these mechanical watches to a whole new level when they started
looking at building them up as jewelry. And in the 1770’s, we saw the rise of the
pocket watch. Why? Because they actually developed a technology
to a point that you didn’t have to constantly wind the watch, you could simply keep it in
your pocket and it would keep pretty accurate time. They were very expensive, they were all made
by hand and it was very labor-intensive. So, the watches were kind of the plaything
of the rich and those in a very high-level position to be able to show off their wealth. That being said, the ability to track time
was recognized very quickly by high-level officials is actually something very valuable
for people’s work day, so it was eventually adopted as a tool. Now, let’s talk about craftsmanship. So, quartz watches in general are going to
be simpler than the mechanical brethren. In general, a quartz watch is going to consist
of a quartz oscillating crystal, an electronic circuit to drive the watch and a means of
displaying time and a battery to power the whole system. Here, you’re going to find a stem circuit
coil, battery insulator contact, battery strap, plate, train bridge, dial foot clamp, a case
screw. Overall, when it comes to watchmaking we’re
talking very few parts. And by the way, there are many advantages
to actually being a simpler watch, but let’s now talk about mechanical watches. These have on average from one hundred and
thirty to over a thousand pieces. And, gents, the vast majority of those parts
they are actually moving, so when you to think about it the complexity of that system is
mind-blowing. [0:05:08]
Now, let’s talk about assembly. So, putting together a quartz watch because
there are so few pieces, it’s relatively quick and simple. When we go to mechanical watches, we’re talking
days, we’re talking months, in some cases years and that, gentleman, directly affects
the price. So, let’s talk cost. The movement inside a quartz watch can go
anywhere if you were just to buy that movement itself for $5 to $100. The price is affected by the materials, who
makes it, where do they make it, and all the complications that the movement is going to
have to drive. Now, mechanical and automatic watches on the
other hand can have movements that maybe only cost $50 to $75. Other automatic or mechanical watches can
have movements that cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. In general, what you’re going to see is for
the same movement that’s able to do basically the same thing, quartz watches are going to
be a fraction of the price. Now, one of the most common questions out
there is how when I’m looking at a watch as a potential buyer do I immediately tell if
it’s a quartz or a mechanical watch? So, they should always be marked if you’re
looking to buy one. But, if you look at the second’s hand, you
can actually see when it’s a quartz watch it’s going to have just a ticking movement,
very distinctive versus a sweeping hand on a mechanical watch. Now, the reason on a quartz watch that we
see that movement every second is it simply the most efficient way for the second hand
to move versus if it were to move multiple times which is actually happening on the mechanical
watches. So, mechanical watches five times to eight
times a second we’re actually seeing really small ticks and that’s why it has that sweeping
movement. Now, what about sound? Quartz watches you’re not going to hear anything,
some mechanical watches you will actually be able to hear a ticking sound. So, now, let’s talk about accuracy. This is where quartz watches shine. The cheapest quartz watch out there is going
to be relatively accurate to 1 plus or minus second a day. Mechanical watches can have wide variations
depending on a number of factors such as the watch position. Is the dial up? Is the crown down? The susceptibility to gain seconds due to
shock. So, if basically you’re out playing tennis,
you can actually lose or gain a few seconds. The temperature, the state of the wind of
the mainspring, basically, if it’s not fully wound consistently, you can actually have
an inaccurate watch. Specifically when we’re talking about the
accuracy of mechanical watch all those factors I just talked about plus actually what is
the quality of the watch. Was it chronometer certified? If it’s a high-end luxury watch, then you
should expect about two to three seconds variation per day, but if it’s just something that you
bought very inexpensively, it’s an older mechanical watch, you could sometimes see 12 to 15 seconds
of variation per day. And what about durability? So, quartz watches because they have less
parts in them, they’re going to be in general less susceptible to shock damage. So, if you’re playing a lot of sports, a quartz
watch is good versus a mechanical watch especially a mechanical watch that has a lot of parts. Just think about that, you’re playing golf
or if you bang it up against something, all of a sudden that watch can have just one small
piece get ajar and all of a sudden you have a watch that doesn’t tell time accurately
or stops working. And, let’s talk about maintenance. Quartz watches, incredibly easy. Every two to five years when the battery dies,
simply change out the battery. Occasionally, you may have a mechanical issue,
you can send it in to get it fixed. Now, gents, when it comes to mechanical watches
and maintenance, this is where it can become a nightmare. So, it depends on who you talk with, some
watchmakers are going to say. Okay, every three years, you’ve got to get
that watch in for maintenance because the oils break down and it’s something that a
little bit of preventative maintenance is going to really prevent something bad from
happening at some point in the future. On the other side and I have to admit I’m
with these other guys over here is I we’ll send it in when it stops working. Whenever we’ve got some issues, you can expect
if you’ve had a watch for fifteen, twenty years it’s been running strong, you can expect
something is going to happen at some point. Now, what about case style and type? Actually, with both quartz and mechanical
watches, you have a wide range. But, quartz watches do have a big advantage
on the case and that is actually the thickness of the case. So, quartz watches, they can be incredibly
thin because they just simply don’t have all the mechanical parts you need for a mechanical
watch. That being said, a good-looking mechanical
watch will oftentimes have a clear case back in which you can actually see the inside workings
of the watch. So, gents, what side are you on? Quartz? Mechanical? Or automatic? Let me know down in the comments. So, what video to watch next? Guys, check out this one right here, the chronograph. I talk about the history, how they work. If you are into watches, you are going to
absolutely love this video. Go check it out, guys. I will also link to it down in the description. [0:09:51] End of audio

  2. Non of the watches on the thumbnail are automatic.

    And as someone else mentioned, the build quality and quality control of these watches are garbage…

  3. Don't ever buy a vincero watch. They are just low-quality, overprized fashion-watches. You are paying way to much for a two dollar movement. If you want a cheap watch that will last you forever, has a history and so on, just buy a seiko.

  4. accuracy means everything……automatic watches is useless unless u buy a really expensive watches,which has high quality inside.

  5. One thing you didn't cover, but is kinda hard to put in either mechanical or quartz, is something like the Grand Seiko with their Spring Drive and the perfect sweep. But a great intro video into watches overall.

  6. The advantage of mechanical over
    automatic is, you get a level of engagement with your watch you don't with quartz. For the collector, and connoisseur of watches, this is a good thing. Other aspects of autos and mechanicals is maybe more imagined than real. Like old world craftsmanship, heritage, and tradition. The reason is, even high end products like Rolex are made in factories these days, not in little workshops. And while many fine brands do have history, most watch brands are owned by huge conglomerates. Nevertheless, watch collectors like the idea that, for example, the Rolex Explorer on their wrist has a history going back to the first Everest expedition. Or the Omega Speedmaster Pro went to the moon. Finally, at least with better mechanicals, there is the fact that when they break, they can be repaired. So while it isn't cheap, you can tell yourself this is something you can leave to your children someday. Nobody will be leaving a quartz watch to their children.

    Now the advantage of quartz. They are more accurate than mechanicals. More accurate than the finest certified chronometers. And cheap. In some cases, really cheap. But this is a problem. Because they are ubiquitous, they are not collectible. The opposite in fact. Even quartz from prestigious brands have almost no value on the secondary market. So, not much pride of ownership in having one. That said, if telling time is all you care about than a decent quartz watch for a couple hundred bucks might be the way to go. It will be something that will serve you for 5 or 10 years and when it breaks, you will toss it. No heirloom quality quartz, or very few.

    I personally have both in my collection. If you want inexpensive quartz, go with something like Timex or Casio. Mid level, maybe Seiko or if you prefer swiss, something like Swatch, Mondaine, Swiss Army, or Tissot. For mechanical, Seiko and Orient are value products. Swiss brands like Tissot, Certina and Hamilton are a step up in quality. Beyond that, the sky is the limit. Obviously Rolex and Omega, but there are brands way beyond those.

    Whatever you do, stay away from Vincero, MVMT, or Daniel Wellington. Horrible watches.

  7. I personally prefer a Quartz watch since it is more accurate. However mechanical watches are special because they are more sophisticated. I am saving money to get a watch from Vincero. I love the Gunmetal in the Chrono S connection and the White/Silver from the Kairos Series.
    Thanks for all that info Antonio!

  8. I have a family heirloom pocket watch..nobody in my area knows how to fix it or watch repair people said it can't be fixed. I love that watch..it tries to work but the hands get stuck easily and I haven't found anyone who can fix it so I tend to stick with quartz watches that all I really need to do is change a battery so I don't have to worry about cost for parts.

  9. I’ve been a fan of this channel for many years. For crying out loud, no matter how much they pay you, please stop promoting crap (Vincero).

  10. Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero. Don’t buy Vincero

  11. Fashion watches are exactly what the name implies "fashion" as in not made to last! Therefore; fashion watches are cheap mass made time pieces. However; due to social media, digital marketing and so, some fashion watches companies started to make false claims such as claiming that their products are classified under "affordable luxury"! what does that mean? this is an oxymoron, and these watches are all cheaply made in china and you can buy them on Alibaba or AliExpress for pennies. The designs are not original and are mostly aspired by other brands. Some influencers even dared to claim that fashion watches are better than Rolex! However, there is one positive to this fashion watch apocalypse which is encouraging the young generation to wear a watch, and it's the mainstream brands fault not to use social media and digital marketing to their advantage the way fashion watches companies are.

  12. Wonderful history and fascinating information. I learned a lot and I gained value from this video. Then again, I always gain value from your material.

    Regarding quartz vs automatic, I don't have much preference. I'm not much for the digital watch though. I prefer the traditional analog. I do love the nostalgia behind a winding mechanical watch though.

    I absolutely love ❤ my Vincero. It is a beautiful watch.

  13. I would have a quartz for when I'm going to do things that might get it banged up like an outdoor activity, and a nice mechanical for occasions when I'm going to dress nice. That being said, I do like mechanical watches. All of those tiny parts smoothly moving together in such a small space is something to marvel at.

  14. Don't forget that these are also considered jewelry. You can have an inexpensive movement in a $5000 case of gold and diamonds! If you're into ornament rather than functionality, it really doesn't matter.

  15. Throw away that fashion watch vincero. Buy seiko(especially dive watches) instead. They're inexpensive but durable that can last decades.

  16. Mechanical is the way to go cause of the craftsmanship and quartz for accuracy. I would personally go for Mechanical.
    Great video

  17. Great video Antonio.I prefer automatic watches to quartz movement because I don’t have to worry about changing batteries

  18. I like both mechanical and quartz, and would use either according to what I'm doing. But I like a good mechanical because it is intricate and shows skill, and that is good to me.

  19. Haven’t you seen what happened to alpham? You are ruining your credibility every time you promote these garbage fashion watches.

  20. Great video.

    For me, I'm for automatic all the way. I don't need to be precise to the nearest second (I have my phone with internet time for that, in the unlikely events that this is needed), so the main benefit of the quartz watch is not so big for me.

    I bought my Seiko automatic watch 20 years ago, and it's never let me down, as long as I wear it regularly to keep it "charged". I've never had to service it, other than repairing the clasp ( but that doesn't count for the timekeeping function), and it works for my lifestyle. Plus I don't have to change batteries every couple of years like I did with my previous (quartz) watch.

    I'm never going back to battery if I can help it (caveat: I might get a dirt-cheap inexpensive digital quartz watch for playing tennis, after watching your video!)

  21. There's a lot of questions in the comments section about which watch they should buy.
    Honestly just buy a watch that makes you happy and don't over pay for what your getting.
    I've got a few expensive watches and some very cheap watches and every time I put any of them on I get excited to wear them.
    Buy for you not for other people.

  22. ACCURACY! A certified chronometer must be accurate within -4 to +6 seconds per day. Even a $50 Casio will be accurate to within 5 seconds per week (one of my G-Shocks didn't have to be set for 3 months). No mechanical watch is that accurate. I own both mechs and quartz. I have to wind up and set a mech if I'm going to wear it. Day to day, I wear quartz just because it's already running, and set.

  23. When a quartz wears out, it will require replacing. Mechanical watches can be repaired. Thus they can survive generations they can be passed on for hundreds of years.
    Btw, atomic watches are also mechanical. And can also , with maintenance, last for generations. Quartz movements are just disposable. I wouldn't pay more than $35 for one

  24. So many negative comments for vincero watches gets me thinking..🤔

    Btw some well researched info you have covered there Antonio..✅

  25. I saw the title of the vid and I just knew that I should expect to hear “go check out Vincero. I’m linking them down in the description.” Just, LOL.

    Such shit watches. No thanks.

  26. I have both quartz and mechanical. I wear different ones based upon what I am doing. Usually the mechanical one if I am wearing a shirt and tie but the quartz if I am doing something that might damage the watch.

  27. Jesus Christ, this guy is still promoting shittters? After all the negative feedbacks about Vincero/MVMT/Original Grain being Chinese made garbage being marketed up the A$$ and being sold 10x more than their actual worth, these "style gurus" still have the audacity to promote this. This shows a lot about the integrity of these guys.

  28. Using this paid ad to promote knowledge was an excellent move.
    I do hope you retain the attention of a more reputable watch sponsor in the future to ensure your brand ROI in the future.
    Keep doing what you do Devil

  30. I love mechanical watches! All those wheels, jewels, springs. I have a 1950s Hamilton wristwatch, so classy. However, I have a Quartz timepiece 'sidearm' just in case.

  31. Mechanical(automatic) all the way, simply because it's a work of art of a engineering masterpiece on your wrist, and it can last forever and hold value for established brands

  32. I actually enjoy both mechanical/ automatic watches and quartz. Both have a place in horology to me. No watch snobbery on my side of the fence😁

  33. Love all kinds of watches but there’s something special about mechanicals. All those moving parts coming together to keep time is really cool in today’s world where everything is electronic.

  34. Dont buy Vincero watches, there are much cheaper and higher quality options from real watchmakers with actual mechanical movements and not $1 shit quality quartz movements.

  35. Mechanical watches can be addictive if you are the kind of man who loves complicated machines. It's like putting a car on your wrist.

  36. Do yourself a favor and DON’T ever buy a Vincero (or MVMT) watch. A Seiko or Citizen is a much better horological investment.

  37. I used to watch this channel a lot but lately is just sponsor infested …..not a good channel anymore . Same as AlphaM just 30% of the video is dedicated to some shitty product .

  38. I have both in my collection. You did not mention eco-drive, or solar powered watches. I have a Citizen Chandler that is my go to watch for travel or outdoor activities. It’s powered by the sun and super durable.

  39. I like your channel. But the Vincero promoting counters many of your tips. Quality is key. I know you make money from sponsors so get your money. But I will lead people with my recommendations below, and I'm sure people can chime in.

    Low: Seiko, Oris, Orient, Sinn
    Mid: Omega, Tudor, JLC
    High: Patek, AP, Rolex (debatable for high)

  40. Buy a SEIKO, Buy a CITIZEN, Buy a TIMEX, Buy a SWATCH. DON'T BUY VICERO, MVMT, or that other wooden watch brand.

  41. I'm into, mechanical Swiss made, high end watches. Because they're considered an investment. They hold their value better. Although, I'd never consider selling one. But, I like the whole idea of my watch maintaining its value.

  42. Don't buy a Seiko 5 unless you wear it all the time as it cannot be hand wound, or have a watch winding machine.
    The new issue Seiko 5s have the better 4r36 hand windable movement. Get one

  43. Im not buying a watch that has genuine leather and "sapphire coated" glass, just doesnt add up. Especially for the price of a vincero not worth it in my opinion

  44. I was going to buy a fashion watch like Vincero but ended buying a Hamilton instead. Ofcourse it's a lot more money but it's just better.

  45. Vincero, the watch company that makes complications that don't actually work. For the same price you can do better.

  46. Easy, Quartz all the way, while fantastic pieces, I just don't have any need for a mechanical watches, not to mention I'm somewhat forgetful and will forget to wind the damn thing.

  47. I actually own both kinds and both have their place. For a daily, it's a quartz. My fun watches are automatic.

  48. guys, can someone explain to me why Vincero sucks? I need a BOLD and explicit answers please! i just bought a rose gold chrono S and currently waiting for it to be delivered? care to explain watch geeks? thank you!!

  49. The one second tick is not exclusive to quartz, there is complication for mechanical called dead seconds that emulates the tick off quartz. It's one of the less common complications, the most famous example is probably the Jaeger LeCoultre Geophysic True Second.

  50. Vincero, Daniel Wellington and other fashon watches use cheap movements and parts, and are of low quality. If you shop around at aliexpress, you 'll find the exact same watch without the brandname for a fraction of the price. The Movement, Vincero is using in thier mechanical watches is a Miyota 821a with a costom rotor. This is the lowest tier of automatic movements, Citizen/Miyota has to offer. You can find a lot of alternatives with that movement at less than 100 USD or you go for a Seiko 5 with the 7S26 movement. Many of the Seiko 5 models also sell for under 100$. And you get a watch of a real watchcompany.
    Another problem with these fashonwatches is, that the part, that is actually holding the movement is made of crappy plastic with a verry limited shockresistance. So, if you buy a poorly made quartzdriven fashonwatch, the robust quartsmovement will work as you would expect, but because of the ceap movemet holder, the watch will not survive intense sports .
