Lovely bright day in Edinburgh, which makes a change, so for a bit of colour it's this Avia Electronic Swissonic. Very Happy

Can I ask what is the difference between an Electronic and a Quartz watch ? Am I correct in assuming that both types take a battery ?

Yes, they are both battery powered. Unlike Quartz watches electronic watches have a balance wheel or tuning fork like the Accutron watches.

I'm no expert on these type of watches so this link better explains the technical variations. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_watch

I have a  Rotary Electronic watch which has an ESA 9150 movement

which dates from 1967 and was the first electronically controlled balance wheel movement.

Electric watches though date back to the 1950s with among others the Hamilton 500 series which had a magnetically driven balance wheel powered by a battery.

Hope this is of some interest & I've not muddled the facts.  Embarassed
