An electronic watch is a watch that uses a paper-thin piece of quartz crystal as a timekeeping device. A relatively new invention in the watch industry (as related to the hundred-year tradition of Swiss mechanical watches), quartz or electronic watches can have an analog or digital face and may have many additional features such as luminescence or water resistance.
