Could you provide me some answer to the following questions:

1. Which brand possess the best movement?
2. Does a watch with more jewels the better?

I would also like to know the answer to the above questions which I couldnt find it.

On another note, I would also like to know about Swatch movement. Would you mind provide information on this compare to Quartz Movement?

I need to clarify this fact: Is Quartz Timepiece means a watch with quartz movement, right?

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you for your questions.

As for the first question about the brand that produces the best movements, Swiss movements are highly reliable. You can choose from any Swiss brand, but also you should consider the watch design and functions. You can consider such brands as Victorinox, Tissot, Raymond Weil, Longines, Mido, Alpina, Alfex and many others.

As for the number of jewels in the movement you can find the answer via the following link jewels in movements.

Swatch stands for the brand name of wristwatches produced by the Swatch Group. Swatch watches are fashionable and reliable, usually available at reasonable prices. You can find both mechanical and quartz Swatch watches.

You are right, a quartz timepiece implies it is equipped with a quartz movement.

A mechanical watch implies it is equipped with an automatic or manual-winding mechanical movement.
