UNDERSTANDING DIFFERENT WATCH TYPES:
- MANUAL MECHANICAL WATCH
The manual watch is the most traditional type of mechanical timepiece. These watches contain a manual movement (or hand-wound movement) that requires daily winding or turning of the crown to function. This action winds a coiled spring known as the mainspring. As the mainspring unwinds, this energy is released back into the watch gears to power the mechanical watch. These special movements can trace its roots back to the 16th century and is considered very desirable by collectors.
- AUTOMATIC MECHANICAL WATCH
Automatic or self-winding watches were the next evolution of mechanical watch movements. These watches were not common until the early 1930s when Rolex 1st patented the modern rotor-driven system. Differentiating itself from a manual movement, a self-winding movement uses a weighted rotor which rocks back and forth to wind the mainspring while worn on the wrist. This unique system eliminates the need for daily hand winding.
- QUARTZ WATCH
Considered to be one of the most accurate watch movements, a quartz movement uses a battery for its power source. It does not need winding like a mechanical watch and uses integrated circuits to control time keeping.
