Two features of Swiss watches that distinguish them from regular watches are that they are Swiss made and have a Swiss movement. Swiss watches are broadly of two types, Mechanical and Electronic or Quartz. A mechanical Swiss watch has a movement that uses energy from a wound spring to power the watch, instead of a battery. An electronic or quartz watch on the other hand is operated by vibrations of an electrically driven quartz crystal and are thus very accurate and require minimal maintenance aside from battery replacements.
The Swiss watch market can be segmented into the market for mechanical Swiss watches and the market for electronic Swiss watches. In addition to this, significant amount of trade takes place of Swiss movements meant to be assembled in overseas locations. It is thus, a crucial part of the Swiss watch market which has witnessed persistent growth over the years, benefitting primarily from a rise in luxury consumption attributable to the economic boom in China.
