Question about Watches
How can I start a small Quartz clock (1 1/2'' circumference)which has been sitting in gift case for several years.? Never been used.
The first thing to try would be to test the battery. If the battery is good the problem may be the mechanical works need to be started in motion. If it has swinging parts try to get them swinging. If it has hands set the time on the clock. Hold the the clock in your hand with the face towards you and rotate it clockwise a few times to get the gears moving. Sometimes just letting it sit upright for a day or so will be enough to let the clock start working. I hope this is helpful to you.

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.
If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.
Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?
