Watch Engineering... any one?

Common guys, its got some gears. Its got some angles, its got some microchips too. There is a very complex engineering involved in the making of your wrist watches (or any watches for that matter.)

Does any one know what mechanical engineering goes behind that? I'm a watches fan. I already own a Fast Track Gold Steel, Titan Regale and a Fossil. 😎
I like all of them, and I wanna know how they work. πŸ˜•

Any one there and listening?

hey mayur
i guess following links will help you in finding your desired solutions

1>> Kevin's Watch Collecting - How your Watch Works

2>> How do quartz watches work?

Thanks for the links Yudi. I was just trying to explore the engineering behind the watches.
Once would probably get the greatest satisfaction if you fabricate your own time piece (if you are a mechanical engineer, that is) πŸ˜‰

Other than their engineering precision, their high prices are hard to believe too πŸ˜› Tissot.. TAG Heuer.. Breitling.. one can only admire them from behind the shopping window πŸ˜”

.. unless you are Mayur πŸ˜‰

πŸ˜’ Oh well nothing like that. Two of the three brands I own are Indians. And the third one was gifted to me by my brother.

Anyway, nothing wrong in the fact that I'm truly interested in watches and have made attempts to know how are they actually made. Also how do they last THAT long. (Watches have a tendency to run for years without much defect, except battery. That is SOME mechanical engineering. :ideaπŸ˜€
