What is in an analog watch movement?

Posted by Darrell Spencer on

There are many different options when you ask about movements in a watch. Mechanical, quartz, manual, automatic are all different choices when it comes to powering your watch, but have you heard the term analog when it comes to a watch movement? What is an analog watch movement?

The short answer is there is no analog watch movement.  Analog refers to the rotation of the hands around to numbers, or indices, on the dial to display time.  An analog watch is simply one where the display isn't digital.  So the traditional face of a watch dial with hour, minute, and second hands is what you mean when you call a watch "analog".  What type of movement powers that display doesn't matter; analog watches can be powered by both mechanical and quartz movements.
