The movement is the brain of the watch. It is the mechanical entity that keeps accurate time. A movement should be evaluated by the functions it provides, how it provides those functions, and the quality of manufacturing. Electric utilizes the most accurate and most durable Japanese and Swiss analog movements on the market. In digital watches the brain is called a module and can be programmed for a wide range of functions.
Analog movements use rotating hands on a dial with numbers and/or other markers to display the time and other information. Quartz movements use the vibrations of a tiny quartz crystal powered by a battery to maintain timing precision and are known for being extremely accurate and low maintenance.
Displays the most basic information in - hours, minutes, seconds, and date. Driven by an analog quartz movement. Featured in the FW01 and FW03.
3 hand Japanese quartz, hours, minutes, seconds and date. Custom brass hands with branded second hand.TYPE OF QUARTZ: tuning fork type quartz crystalFREQUENCY: 32,768hzACCURACY: ±20 second / month worn under normal circumstances.BATTERY: silver oxide sr626sw battery or equivalentBATTERY LIFE: 3 yearsDRIVING SYSTEM: two-pole stepping motor / no jewelsFUNCTION: date calendar, powercell saving reset mechanism (psrm) overloading comprehension device (olcd) digital frequency control (dfc) for time adjustment.
A chronograph movement provides stopwatch function measuring intervals of time. Sub dials measure partial seconds, seconds, minutes, hours, and/or 24 hour time. A chronograph has an independent sweep second hand on the main dial; it can be started, stopped, and returned to zero by successive pressure on pushers. We proudly use industry leading Miyota chronograph movement. FW02, DW02, and DW01 models utilize Japense Miyota movement.
6 hand Japanese quartz chronograph, hours, minutes, seconds, date, chrono minute, chrono second, chrono 1/20th second.

Digital watches have a brain called a module and can be programmed for a wide range of functions. The time and information is displayed in number format on a LCD screen. Most common features are time, calendar, stopwatch, timer and light functions - found in the ED01. More complex features can include tide cycle and moonphase data - found in the ED01-T.
Surgical stainless steel prevents specific forms of corrosion. It is also known as marine grade stainless steel due to its increased resistance to chloride corrosion compared to type 304. 316 is often used for building nuclear reprocessing plants. It is generally used in stainless steel watches and marine applications, as well as exclusively in the fabrication of reactor pressure vessels for boiling water reactors, due to its high resistance to corrosion. 316 SS allows for precision machining and is used in electric’s cases, crowns, pushers, case backs and band hardware.
Grade 304 is the standard “18/8” stainless; it is the most versatile and most widely used stainless steel, available in a wider range of products, forms and finishes than any other. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics. Electric uses 304 SS in our stainless steel bands.
Polyurethanes are used in the manufacture of flexible, high-resilience foam seating; rigid foam insulation panels; micro-cellular foam seals and gaskets; durable elastomeric wheels and tires (such as roller coaster wheels); automotive suspension bushings; electrical potting compounds; high performance adhesives; surface coatings and surface sealants; synthetic fibers (e.g., spandex); carpet underlay; hard-plastic parts (e.g., for electronic instruments); hoses and skateboard wheels. Fully reacted polyurethane is chemically inert. PU is highly moldable and desirable for watch bands due to its natural flexibility and soft feel against the skin. Unlike woven fabric bands or natural leather bands, PU is non-porous and quick drying, ideal for uses in and around water.
Pvd is the process in which we “color” metal. It is a way of bonding metal creating a coating that protects and adds durability but is not scratch proof. Electric uses titanium carbide (tic) or titanium nitride (tin) to achieve a range of color coatings including: black, gold, copper, grey, or blue.
An extremely hard (MOHS 9-9.5) refractory ceramic material, similar to tungsten carbide. It is commercially used in tool bits. Titanium carbide is also used as a surface coating on some watches to increase hardness and change the surface color. Electric uses titanium carbide in its PVD coating process for all black coatings, mainly seen on the bezel.

Cool styling. No lumes though, so the military time is null since you cant read the dial after sundown!

Received on Friday, Very comfortable, easy to read. I will be getting the Diver. The Nato band Will break in nicely. Easy to set. I mention that as having had watches that you need a PHD to set.
