How does an automatic watch work ?
When you buy a watch, few things must be checked, of course you think about the design and the price, but the mechanism is also important. For the later, you can either have a quartz or a mechanical watch.
When we talk about automatic timepieces, we think about great brand names, craftsmanship excellence and exclusivity.
But what does it really mean? How do automatic watches work?
As opposed to quartz watches, where the watch is powered by a battery, automatic watches work with the energy created by the motion of your wrist.
An automatic movement is the alliance of hundreds of pieces and materials that once together synchronize perfectly. Precision is the essence of these complexes timepieces and the movement is, as a matter of fact, considered as the heart of the watch.
With a proper care, an automatic watch will last long, can be pass from generation to generation and will never become obsolete.
Because you don’t need to change batteries, your automatic timepiece will be eco - friendlier and have less impact on the environment than the smartwatches.
Considering the intricacy and the precise engineering needed in creating mechanical timepieces, equating its value to the effort, dedication, and craftsmanship of the watchmakers are enough reasons why these should have a gold tag.
However, it does not necessarily mean these watches are expensive, and we believe at Ami Watch we can combine quality and aesthetics with reasonable price.
