  • Oscillator

    Most of the modern fine watches depend on oscillation. A quartz luxury watch uses a quartz oscillator to keep track of time. To put is simply, an oscillator is a small piece of quartz which makes unvarying, continuous motions. Quartz is considered to be an ideal material to use as an oscillator due to several characteristics. First of all, its vibrations are extremely steady and it uses little energy. Secondly, it generates voltage necessary for the operation of a luxury watch. The stability of the frequency of this technology makes it the perfect choice for the most innovative and durable high end watches. There are also mechanical oscillators, which are famous for their high accuracy and groundbreaking technologies. Nowadays watchmaking is undergoing a fast development and whole new family of oscillating mechanisms turn the watch world upside down. The best luxury watch brands compete in manufacturing the cutting-edge precise timepieces. The Seiko Spring Drive watch, for example, was billed by its creators as the most accurate mechanical timepiece in the world. The unique technology used in this amazing watch is extremely efficient and ensures the holistic excellence of the timekeeping. Chopard and Breguet recently launched their new fine watches that feature high-frequency silicon oscillators with silicon components. The delicate mechanics of these masterpieces dramatically increased the frequency of the balance, pushing the limits of the conservative watchmaking industry.
