    Sounds pretty recent to me. Does the second hand move once a second? If so it's probably quartz. If it ticks along at 5 or more beats a second, and the second hand moves more smoothly, then it's mechanical.

    Regards,
    Mike

    Hi Mike, thanks for your response, It is not now runnning, but I am pretty sure it's a quartz watch, crown doesn't wind anything when turned. It's a screw-on back so I'll take it o the shop Monday and have it checked out. Thanks again.
