Yes, it's a quartz, but the price is right and according to Maratac, the seconds hand sweeps like an automatic (every 1/4 of a second, instead of the somewhat clunky one second tic-tock that many other quartz watches have). Swiss quartz movement. Domed sapphire crystal. 39mm in diameter.

Looks like a Parnis. Don't it? or a homage of an IWC.

"sweeping quartz" apparently its smooth like an automatic and not ticking like a normal quartz. I guess kind of like a bulova accutron?

Damn, I had been looking for a budget pilot watch "a" style face, just a tiny bit small at 39mm (I'm looking for 42mm). Don't know much about the movement, but at 4x the ticks, it should be expected to have the battery replaced more often. I wouldn't mind that if the movement is more fluid and is equally as accurate. Lume on the face and hands should be good.

Great price, I'd be all over it if it were a 42mm, I think that's a more current size, and my wrists aren't even that big.

There's a video on the site of the "sweeping". Doesn't look great IMO.
