Wall clocks are practical and aesthetically pleasing accessories for any interior. Modern wall clocks are usually analogous to a quartz movement, but there are also all-digital as well as mechanical.
It is no coincidence that quartz wall clocks are the most common type. They are beautiful, accurate and usually work with 1-2 batteries for several months.
Digital watches also have their place in our lives. They often combine indications, except for the exact time, and for date, temperature, humidity and others. Digital wall clocks are a more preferred accessory for the office, but are also used in modern home interiors.
Mechanical wall clocks are still found, although they are more of a design element than a reliable timekeeping tool. They can be with pendulum and weights, with winding or with other methods of propulsion. In the past, many also had the famous cuckoo species.
Desktop clocks are compact, usually multifunctional devices that are widely used both at home and in the office. They also have quartz and mechanical representatives, but the predominant part of table clocks are digital. For this reason, they are also multifunctional - they usually show several other parameters in addition to the exact time.
Modern digital clocks can also accept functions such as radio, alarm clock, weather station, bluetooth connection and others. The most advanced models are now equipped with a wireless smartphone charger.
The alarm clock is definitely a dying species. The presence of a smartphone with an alarm clock function on everyone's nightstand is the reason for this demise. However, if you do not want your smartphone to be close to you when you sleep, the old-fashioned alarm clock is a great way to show time and wake up. In practice, the alarm clock is a desktop clock, but as compact as possible and necessarily with a sound wake-up function.
What is a quartz watch mechanism
At the heart of analog electric watches is a quartz generator of stabilized electrical oscillations, a chip for calculating time and a terminal that is connected to a digital display. Watches that are powered directly from the mains may not have their own generator, but use the frequency of alternating electric current.
