    Mechaquartz Chronograph Power

    I just got a Seiko 8T67 chronograph. From my research, I had thought the base movement (time) would be quartz battery powered and the chronograph would be hand wound powered. But my new watch doesn’t wind.

    So what is the deal with a mechaquartz, just the smooth Chrono seconds and the snap reset? The only “mecha” being the snap?

    I thought the chrono seconds were smooth and an indicator of the “mecha” bit as well.

    So just to close my own question for anyone else, no the Chrono is not spring powered. I really don’t know what I was thinking. But the snap back and smooth seconds is nice on the Chrono. And, the price is very very reasonable. I do not regret the purchase.
