How does the swiss eta g10.211 quartz chronograph work
I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking how this particular quartz movement operates?
Quartz movements are pretty much the same operational wise. They can
vary greatly in materials used for construction and number of jewels.
At it's basic a quartz watch uses a piece of quartz crystal called a transistor oscillator
to vibrate a tuning fork. This vibration is a is brought down by micro
processors to a meaningful number then converted into mechanical energy
trough the movement and hands.
In the case of a chronograph it means more internal gears and jewels.
Although this is a good movement it is the low side of middle of the road.
G10.211 is an analog display of hours and measured time. These include
hours, minutes and a small jumping second as 6 o'clock. Mechanical date
and counters for 1/10 second, 60 seconds and 30 minutes with "ADD" and
'SPLIT" functions. Operated by 2 push buttons.
It has 6 jewels.
If you want to know something more specific please just ask.
Hope this helps.
