Montre quartz

Why is the quartz watch not recognized by watch enthusiasts?

Because there was no other alternative, for a long time, watches were only mechanical. The first quartz watch was marketed in 1969. Despite the technological advances offered by these watches, they do not seem to receive the same recognition from watch enthusiasts.

What are the differences between a mechanical watch and a quartz watch?

These two types of watches do not work in the same way, if only in the energy they use. The mechanical watch uses kinetic energy, either through movements of the wrist or through the action of a spring. The quartz watch uses electrical energy supplied by a battery.

Energy and the mechanisms that result from it are at the heart of the main differences between these two watches.

The kinetic energy that drives the mechanisms allows the hand to move smoothly whereas a quartz mechanism will tend to "jump" from one second to the next.

A simple story of technology?

To be passionate about fine watchmaking is to be passionate about this mechanism, these complex workings, this “old technology” of high precision.

The passion for mechanical watches only grows in a world where everything is simplified. This type of mechanism combining high technology and traditional know-how is an ode to many virtues such as patience, precision and difficulty.

This is the choice that Beaubleu made by selecting the MIYOTA 9015 movement, recognized for its quality, robustness and the precision of its architecture.
