About Quartz Watches

Quartz watches are a fascinating product of modern engineering, allowing us to keep perfect time within fractions of a second per year. Watch collectors often have many quartz watches whose batteries require replacing at least once every couple of years. When you become familiar with the anatomy of a quartz watch, its various functions, and how to maintain and repair them, it will be easy to service your own watch collection or that of others. Jewelery stores don't often change watch batteries in watches they didnt sell; because many sales employees are not trained in watch repair, jewelry stores often send watches out for a week or more-even for simple battery replacements. This course teaches everything from simple bracelet adjustment and battery replacement to movement replacement and conversion. You will learn the time-honored techniques to maintain and repair all types of quartz watches.
