Unraveling the Mechanics: Automatic Movements
The allure of automatic movements lies in their marriage of mechanical ingenuity and timeless tradition. Harnessing the kinetic energy generated by the wearer's motion, automatic watches embody the pinnacle of watchmaking.
The Dance of Gears and Springs
Automatic movements house a symphony of gears and springs, choreographing an intricate dance within the watch's casing. This mechanical orchestra is driven by the motion of the wearer, converting kinetic energy into a mesmerizing display of ticking hands and rotating gears.
Pros and Cons: A Delicate Balance
Pros of automatic movements include the craftsmanship, the continuous ticking as long as it's worn, and the appreciation among watch enthusiasts for the artistry involved. Yet, the need for regular wear to keep it running and its delicate nature are considerations.
The Power of Quartz
On the flip side, quartz movements, powered by batteries, bring precision to the forefront. The oscillation of a quartz crystal regulates timekeeping with unparalleled accuracy.
Quartz: The Unwavering Beat
Pros of quartz movements include accuracy, low maintenance, and robustness against external factors. However, the rhythmic ticking can lack the romanticism of the sweeping motion of automatic hands. Also, when the battery dies, the watch is unusable until getting the battery replaced. We always recommend taking your watch to a trained watchmaker to replace the battery so that they can properly reseal the watch to maintain its waterproof characteristic.
