The continuous sweep movement has a second hand that moves in a sweeping motion, rather than traditional battery movements whose second hands travel in a stepping motion. Not only do continuous movements give your clock a different look, but they are said to be quieter too since you don't hear the ticking noise as it travels through the seconds.
All battery movements on this page take a "AA" battery.
