What is a Quartz Watch Movement?
Quartz movements are battery-powered and winding is never required, even if you don’t wear the watch for some time. Although Quartz Watch Movements have fewer moving parts and do not need as much servicing as Mechanical Wind Up or Automatic Watch Movements, quartz movement batteries will last between 12 to 24 months and will need a battery replacement on the regular. Quartz watches also break down over time and will need replacement services, especially in the case of battery acid and water damage that will affect the watch movement itself.
Quartz Movement Replacement Services
What is most important about your quartz watch is to replace the battery as swiftly as possible. Once the watch battery dies, there’s a chance that the battery can start leaking acid, which will do considerable damage to the movement. It is advised to not try to replace your own watch battery, unless you have the proper water pressurization equipment and trained expertise. Our certified watchmakers have the knowledge and dexterity to successfully repair any problem on any type of watch movement in order to keep your watch running with optimal performance.
Not sure what watch service you need?
Not only are Watch Movement Repair Services required after a prolonged period of time after its last service, Watch Movement Repair Services are also mostly likely required after needing Watch Crystal Replacements as tiny glass particles from a cracked Watch Crystal may fall into the many moving parts and gears within the Watch Movement.
There are other Watch Movement Repair Services that include the other types of movements such as:

” I could not have been more impressed”
“I inspected it and have to say that they did a beautiful job”
About three weeks later I received a email stating that my watch had shipped, they provide a tracking number that I might keep a track of it, upon receiving the watch I inspected it and have to say that they did a beautiful job on the exterior cleaning and polish plus they replaced the clasp, I can only assume that the work done to the movement is of equal quality and detail this will be born out over time as I see how the accuracy is.
They also provided the pressure test ticket in the return package.

There are several giveaways to identify what type of Watch Movement that your watch has. One of the easiest ways is to check the text on the back of the case or on the dial; what you can look for is the caliber number engraved within this text. You can either identify the type of movement by the knowledge of how often you wind your watch, or observing the actual movement of the watch hands. If you find yourself never winding your watch and instead, replacing a battery every couple of years, you most likely have a quartz watch movmement.
If you have trouble identifying the type of watch you have and need it serviced, our Certified Watchmakers will be able to do that for you with no problem.

Your watch puchase decision all depends on the type of maintenance and care you wish to implement on a daily basis. The pros of having a Quartz Watch is having a much more basic maintenance routine than those who own Mechanical and Automatic Watches, and the services done on the regular would probably much cheaper; these other types of watches that do not have a battery like Quartz watches do are for those who have the particular interest and passion for those into the micro-mechanics of the watch movements, especially for watches that have a clear case back that allows the wearer to see the movement.
