Since its inception in 1969, the quartz movement has revolutionised the world of watchmaking. The first quartz watch, invented by Japanese watch brand Seiko, was a limited-edition release of only 100 models, each one costing as much as a new Toyota. However, the idea quickly spread, with brands all over the world racing to adopt the quartz movement. Usually powered by a battery, quartz watches work by sending an electrical signal through a tiny crystal of quartz, which creates vibrations that power the watch’s hands. This almost-perfect frequency of vibrations makes quartz watches incredibly precise, accurate to within one second per day.
Aside from their reliability and precision, quartz watches are popular thanks to their low maintenance, only requiring a battery change every few years. And, with our pre-owned quartz watches, you can save thousands on these exquisite designer styles. Every second-hand watch we sell goes through a thorough service and a check for authenticity, so you can shop pre-owned in complete confidence.
