Clock Bezel

Clock electric motors are, in a sense, the central processing unit of all watches. Clock motors, likewise called clock activities, are glorified counters that maintain exact time, usually by tracking the variety of pulses released by a quartz crystal, as well as they control the turning of all the hands. Herein we explore the functions as well as the quirks of these mechanisms. The very first clock electric motors were completely mechanical. A firmly coiled spring or dangling weight applied continuous torque to the main equipment, and an escapement made the equipment turn slowly one tooth at a time. A swinging pendulum figured out the frequency of this "ticking" such that a shift took place as soon as each second.
