While most people might think a watch is just a simple machine that makes the hands go around, it is actually so much more than that. Watchmaking is an art that there are many variations in the field. The inner workings of a watch are called watch movements which are enclosed within two discs.
There are three kinds of watch movements, manual, automatic, and quartz. The manual and automatic fall in the mechanical category and do not use batteries. The quartz movement watches are powered by batteries and last a long time.
