Why mechanical replica watches are more expensive than quartz watches of the same style

Under normal circumstances, the price of the same mechanical watch will be higher than that of a quartz watch, but this does not mean that a mechanical watch is definitely more suitable for you. Quartz watches are much more accurate than mechanical watches in terms of timekeeping, because the principles of movement of quartz watches and mechanical watches are different. Moreover, the mechanical watch adopts mechanical devices due to its own structure and principle. The wear of parts over time, the environment, air pressure, magnetic field, etc. will affect the mechanical watch. Therefore, the error within 20 seconds a day is relatively normal, and the smallest error is 4 to 5 seconds. But quartz watches are different. Quartz crystals can provide the most stable pulse wave, so it can guarantee the highest accuracy. Under normal circumstances, the monthly error of a quartz watch is between 5 and 15 seconds, and the smallest error is only 5 seconds a year.

Then why are mechanical replica watches more expensive than quartz watches of the same style? This is because mechanical watches require precision lathes to make mechanical parts during the production process, and they also need to be assembled manually. Finally, precise manual adjustments are required. Quartz watches are generally on automatic production lines. Assembled. In addition, it is generally believed that mechanical watches have a longer operating life than quartz watches. Quartz watches generally have a life span of about 10 years, while mechanical watches can last a long time if they are properly maintained. However, no one wants to wear an ordinary mechanical watch for decades. Quartz watches and mechanical watches also have their own advantages and disadvantages; the biggest advantage of quartz watches is high timing accuracy, easy to wear, and easy to make into a very thin, small, and stylish. While the watch core of a mechanical watch is more technological, but the thickness of the case is generally larger. If it is convenient for you and requires high timing accuracy, then you should choose a quartz watch. If it is a very small and thin quartz watch, you have to consider whether it is convenient to change the battery, because the smaller the battery, the more expensive it is. So you must think clearly here: for matching and advocating precision craftsmanship, you can choose a mechanical watch; for the convenience of watching the time, you can choose a quartz watch, or a more accurate electronic watch.

There are a lot of casual friends who do not like wearing watches before, but now they are influenced by friends around them, and they also start to want to wear watches. All aspects of economic strength can reach them. At this time, it is difficult to choose what material to choose. The common materials of replcia Rolex watch case are 18K gold, gold-clad, gold-plated, titanium, stainless steel, semi-steel chrome-plated, alloy case and many other materials. The K gold case is only used on high-end watches. The price is generally more than tens of thousands of yuan; and semi-steel (only the back cover of the watch is stainless steel) chrome-plated watches are low-end watches, and the case is prone to corrosion. The gold-plated case is more beautiful, but it is easy to wear off without a certain thickness of the gold-plated (including the strap). If you want to choose a gold-plated watch, the thickness of the plating is better than 10 microns. The titanium-plated watch is stronger and wear-resistant, but the color is not very good.


Since mechanical replica watches use many mechanical parts, they are more susceptible to interference from magnetic fields. Some objects, such as microwave ovens, computer speakers, etc., may cause the watch to be magnetized. The most obvious performance after being magnetized is that the watch goes much faster than usual. Mobile phones are now used very frequently. Although their own magnetism is not very large, if they are in "close contact" with a mechanical watch for a period of time, it is likely that the watch will be magnetized. Of course, compared with water ingress or earthquake, the harm from magnetism is not great, just use a degaussing instrument to demagnetize. The demagnetized watch will return to normal as soon as it runs.

My friend’s Vacheron Constantin was pretty good, and he was very excited, so he made a special trip to Vacheron Constantin to buy a formal watch. Mr. Vacheron Constantin became more like it as he looked at it, and he usually wears it in various business occasions. One weekend, my friend Mr. Yoan went to the beach to swim. Mr. An remembered reading the watch manual replcia Rolex before. This is a 30-meter water-resistant watch. He thought to himself that I can swim less than 2 meters in the sea, and it is more than enough water-resistant to 30 meters, and there will be no problems. In this way, he wore Vacheron Constantin and swam in the sea for a while. Within a few days, he discovered that the watch was "strike".

The so-called water resistance of the watch to 30 meters is tested in the laboratory at a constant temperature and at rest. While wearing the watch to swim, the wrist is always in motion. The situation is much more complicated than in the laboratory. Moreover, the 30-meter waterproof watch is basically There is no screw-in crown. When swimming, it is easy to touch the crown and cause the crown to loosen, causing water to enter the replica watch. Generally speaking, only watches with a water resistance of 100 meters and a screw-in crown can be worn for swimming.

The balance wheel and hairspring are the core components of a mechanical movement, and they are relatively fragile. The violent vibration is enough to break the balance wheel shaft. Unless you are wearing a replica watches that is specially designed for tennis or golf, you must remember to take off the watch when you are playing, so you don't regret it.
