Balance wheel Quartz, it's Quartz control but still has a balance wheel. These were the first quartz watches (these were the natural evolution of the Hybrid electronic/electric/Dynabeat watches) and were expensive to produce.

(from the web) The Q Quartz, although hybrid - electron mechanical, is regulated by a quartz swinging at 49152 Hertz, that is over 6000 times faster. Furthermore, the Q Quartz has a micro-computer inside able to sense and correct time-keeping variations.

Holy cow Gary, you know, am embarrassed to say. But actually didn't know much about this. Embarassed
For some reason just don't know a ton about the different types of quartz watches. Honestly,
can't remember looking into Balance Wheel Quartz, or the Q Quartz either before sir.  Shocked If it
weren't for you putting up the term 'Balance Wheel Quartz' yesterday, I would sill be in the
dark about all of this. Thanks so very very much !! WRUW Wednesday 4/29/2020 46145

Man, this hobby is incredible Gary !!! cheers
