Aristotle said, “Life requires movement.” Indeed, everybody talks about the importance of movement. Whether it is in the context of something as historic as the civil rights movement or the simple act of moving through your day – staying static is an obstacle to any progress! Even in the world of horology, movement is the very essence of time.

When one talks about wristwatches, the word ‘movement’ stands for the mechanism that powers the watch. It is comparable to the engine of a wristwatch. Like different kinds of engines, there are different kinds of moments as well. Depending on the expert that you are listening to, watch movements can be classified into three broad categories: quartz, mechanical and automatic. A lot of people also state that movements are either mechanical or quartz.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another category is the manufactured movements or in-house movements. Watch companies such as Chopard, Cartier and Breitling, to name just a few are at the forefront of things when it comes to manufactured movements. Quite a few of the movements that you see in wristwatches that DiscountShop carries are examples of traditional and hybrid movements.

 

The mechanical movement is considered to be the most classic of movements and quite often watch lovers tend to choose mechanical watches over anything else. The Invicta Men’s Specialty INVICTA-16279 with its see-through dial allows you to get a glimpse of the heart beats that power this beautiful mechanical watch.

Automatic movements are the easiest to maintain because all you need to do is wear the watch! DiscountShop does have a large collection of automatic watches including watches from the house of Hamilton, Seiko, Tag Heuer and Lucien Piccard to name a few. The crystal clean looks of the Tag Heuer Carrera CAS2111.BA0730 make it an automatic watch to cherish greatly.

Next, if you are looking for quartz watches, then discount shop has to offer analog quartz, digital quartz and ana-digital quartz. The simple lines of the Seiko Solar SUP880P1 make it a wonderful example of an analog quartz watch. Of course, you can always choose watches which are more feature packed when you look at the Seiko collection of analog quartz watches.

Digital quartz movement can be found in the Casio Baby-G collection and even in the Adidas Adizero series. A watch such as the Casio Baby-G BG169R-8, for instance gives you such an easy to read display and so many other features as well.

If you want even more options from your wristwatch, then you could look for an ana-digital quartz watch in the Casio G shock family. While there are plenty of options you to choose from as far as a Casio watch is concerned, you could also check out the Diesel SBA series and a watch such as the Diesel SBA DZ7261 is a wonderful example of the coming together of analog and digital worlds.
