How A Quartz Watch Works !

The amazing everyday wristwatch: We never think about it, but only because engineers have made it so reliable and durable that we don't
need to. At its heart lies a tiny tuning fork made of the mineral quartz. In this video Bill takes apart a cheap watch and shows extreme
