    Re: How a Mechanical Watch works

    Is there a similar stickie for analogue quartz movements?
    And to go one step further, would there happen to be a good primer on radio controlled quartz movements? (Particularly with regard to how specifically the movement "knows" where the hands are when it syncs to WWVB time signal)

    thanks,

    Doug
