A “quartz” watch is one that is powered by a quartz movement, complete with an electronic circuit board, synthetic quartz crystal, and battery, as opposed to mechanical moving gears, wheels, and other parts. Most quartz movements, whose second hands move in individual “ticks,” beat at a frequency of 32,768 oscillations per second, although today there is also very high precision (VHP) calibers on the market that vibrate at even faster oscillations per minute. Its made of Sapphires one of the hardest minerals in the world that why its scratch-resistance.
How a Quartz Movement Works:
A quartz movement utilizes a battery as its primary power source and is typically the type of movement that you will find in your standard, no-frills watch. To create power in quartz watch movements, a battery sends an electrical current through a small quartz crystal, electrifying the crystal to create vibrations. These vibrations keep the movement oscillating and drive the motor to move the watch's hands. Quartz movements in fine Swiss watch brands, such as Patek Philippe, are designed to comply with their strict quality standards.
This tradition of excellence at Baume & Mercier is based on the design and development of its products at Maison's headquarters in Geneva, and on the "établissage" process carried out at its workshops in the Swiss Jura, in Les Brenets. This means that watch production is centralized in Switzerland. Baume & Mercier attracts the best talents to ensure it achieves the ultimate quality and respect for tradition; this has been Maison’s strength since it was founded.
Each of our watches is a result of the passion of our master watchmakers and a desire to innovate, which is reflected in thousands of sketches, hundreds of hours of modeling, and years of development. The skill of our design studio lies in finding the balance between artistic creativity and technical possibilities, which is the responsibility of our development engineers.
