What is the difference between a quartz movement and a mechanical movement?

Quartz watches work thanks to the energy supplied by a battery. Watches equipped with a mechanical movement work thanks to a spring which needs to be wound up so as to supply energy. Automatic (self-winding) mechanical watches also use the spring system, but the winding of the spring is carried out by the oscillating mass of the movement.
