The automatic watch mechanism dates back to the 17th century when Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Perrelet invented a mechanism that wound a pocket watch as the wearer moved using an oscillating weight that powered the mainspring.
Over the years, a number of watch makers including Hubert Sarton and Breguet improved upon Perrelet’s invention. It was in the early 1920s that an automatic winding mechanism small enough to place inside a wristwatch was developed by English watch repairman John Harwood. Rolex improved upon John Harwood’s design in 1930.
Automatic watches are self-winding. An automatic movement has a metal weight called a rotor. The rotor is connected to the movement and can rotate freely. Automatic watches harness the natural motion of the wearer to turn the rotor, which winds the watch’s mainspring eliminating the need for manual winding.
A fully wound automatic watch can store enough energy to keep accurate time for about 48 hours so it will keep working during the night. Most automatic watches can also be wound by turning the crown manually.
An automatic watch draws energy from the natural movements of your arms when you are wearing it. If you go a while without wearing it, you'll need to wind it manually to kickstart it.
Winding it manually occasionally is also necessary to keep the manual winding function in working condition.
A great alternative to hand winding automatic watches is to use a watch winder, which will keep the watch fully wound when it’s not being worn.
Watch winders are rotating devices that simulate the motion of the human wrist and keep the watch running indefinitely even when not worn for an extended period.
If you have a collection of automatic watches, you’ll find a watch winder very useful.
Manual or hand wound mechanical movement watches have to be manually wound by hand to generate the energy to power the watch. This is done by twisting the crown - the button used to set the time and date. This is the oldest type of watch movement and many watch collectors choose manual movements because they enjoy the process of winding!
Quartz watches rely on batteries to run while automatic watches do not need batteries but use energy from the mainspring generated from the wearer's motion.
There are also automatic quartz watches that use an oscillating weight to turn a tiny electric generator, which charges a capacitor, powering the quartz movement. Automatic quartz watches provide the accuracy of a quartz watch without the need for batteries.
If you want quality, craftsmanship and intricacy, this is exactly what mechanical watches offer. Skillfully created by expert watchmakers, these movements contain an intricate series of tiny mechanical components working together to power the timepiece.
Ladies automatic watches are quality classic watches and convenient mechanical watches because they are self winding powered by the wearer's movements. Provided you wear your automatic watch regularly, it will stay powered and you don't have to wind it daily like you would a manual hand wound mechanical timepiece. Nor will you ever need to replace the battery like with a quartz watch.
