THE THREE TYPES OF WATCH MOVEMENTS ARE:
Manual winding is a movement that is powered by manually winding the crown. The maximum energy stored in a watch from that winding is called the power reserve. This movement is normally used in fine timepieces.
autoMatic or self-winding movements have a rotor at the back, which will swivel—due to the wearer’s hand movements—and store some of the kinetic energy to power the movement of the watch. This type is most widely used in Swiss watches.
Quartz is a movement that uses a battery. Technically speaking, the movement has an electronic oscillator regulated by a quartz crystal to keep track of time. Swatch, Seiko and Casio are a few of the big players in this field.
