The vast majority of modern analogue watches with two or three hands contain a quartz movement. This technology - where the vibration frequency of a silicon oxide crystal in combination with current from a battery accurately controls the movement - was already used in clocks and some luxury watches in the sixties, but it was not possible to incorporate it on a large scale until the 1980s. Today, the quartz watch is still the most popular type of watch.
Before quartz watches and digital watches became commonplace, almost all timepieces were mechanical. The movement was driven by tensioning a metal spring by winding the watch by hand or by movement (kinetic energy). This type of watch is also called automatic. This technology has also developed over time. Seiko, for example, has an extensive collection of kinetic watches in addition to a series of 'traditional' automatic watches, in which a spring is not wound, but a battery is charged by kinetic energy.
An even more modern way to provide watches with energy is the solar technique. The battery is charged by solar energy or (artificial) light. Several brands have further developed this technique, with the EcoDrive from Citizen and Tough Solar from Casio being the best known.
From the creation of timepieces, man has been looking for the most accurate measurement of time. Until recently, the atomic clock was the most accurate, with a deviation of only 1 second per 5 billion years. At various locations in the world, a radio signal is emitted from an atomic clock. Radio-controlled watches automatically synchronize with this signal and are always on time. Also, the watch does not have to be set on time when daylight saving time starts or ends. Pay attention to whether your watch can be used in one or more parts of the world because the radio frequency can differ per continent. Using a watch in other parts of the world means that you will fall back on the quartz accuracy of the watch itself until synchronization can take place again.
GPS (Global Positioning System) is based on the same technology, where the atomic clock is located in several satellites. This system does have a worldwide coverage. Radio controlled - GPS watches can be found in the G-Shock MR-G and Seiko Astron collection.
Smartwatches are designed to offer additional functions (such as mobile apps, caller ID, SMS and social media alerts, weather reports, fitness monitoring, GPS coordinates, etc.) in addition to the regular time display coupled with a smartphone (usually via Bluetooth).
There are different types of smartwatches available, from digital touchscreen watches to analogue watches with smart functions (so-called hybrid smartwatches). On our smartwatch page you will find more information about these special watches.
