A quartz watch consists of an electronic circuit driven by a battery. The energy of the battery is used to vibrate a quartz oscillator and thus to operate the watch. Because of its electronic nature, the quartz movement is the most precise in watchmaking.
A mechanical watch is powered by the energy stored in a spring in the watch movement. Mechanical watches from Col&MacArthur are self-winding. This means that they are recharged by the movement of an oscillating weight when the watch is worn. Col&MacArthur watches have a power reserve of approximately 36 hours. After this period without being worn, the watch must be manually wound thanks to the winding stem.

Quartz watches have a water resistance of 5 atmospheres, that is to say they are waterproof up to 50 meters deep. However, salt water is not recommended.
For mechanical watches, they have a water resistance of 10 atmospheres (static pressure). The latter are thus waterproof up to 100 meters of depth. Nevertheless, salt water is not recommended.
Watches can be used for sports activities. Nevertheless, sudden movements and shocks should be avoided.
All our watches are quality timepieces and are designed with the greatest care. However, it is essential to treat them as delicate jewellery. We recommend that you do not expose them to water, such as bath water, swimming pool water or sea water.

These movements require regular maintenance in order to maintain increased tolerance. The accuracy of automatic mechanical watches is + or - 20 seconds per day.
