    I see plenty of white metal in the second photo so I assume it's plated.

    The only thing I know about quartz movements is that you put in a new battery when they stop running.

    But there are people here who are more knowledgeable.

    Its gold plated. if you look at the top left corner of the case, you will see plating wear.


    The movement looks like a ETA movement(I think I see the ETA clover symbol on the movement near the battery)

    The calibre code is stamped close to the tube with the quartz crystal (at the bottom of the movement in the picture shown). I can just make it out: ESA-ETA Cal. 556.111:

    From the looks of the bracelet i see traces of white metal so it's definitely plated....can't really say much about the movements.
