Mechanical watches are a popular choice for people with an interest in watches, or those who are searching for an heirloom or long-lasting time piece. Intricately made, each watch has a sort of engine inside its face, typically with two types of movement: Automatic Mechanical or Manual Mechanical.
Automatic mechanical watches are a popular choice, especially for those who wear a watch everyday. Wound by the natural movements of your wrist, also with the option for manual winding if you have no worn the timepiece in a while, they are fairly low maintenance, yet still last many years, even decades.
For frequent wear, or those who are searching for a slightly less hands on watch, automatic mechanical is the way to go as it does not have to be wound as often. Automatic watches, though lower maintenance in terms of winding, do require regular wear, otherwise they can become inaccurate, then requiring manual winding.
Manual mechanical watches are impressive and intricately created, making them an ideal timepiece for those who truly value the history and make of watches. They hold a connection to the past, not frequently found in today's influx of technology, certainly a sentimental piece. Unlike automatic watches, they do not have an internal rotor, allowing them to be lightweight and comfortable.
These watches require winding before each wear to ensure they are accurate, something appreciated by many, but considered too laborious for others, hence they are for those with a deeper interest in watches. Manual mechanical watches have a deep history, typically used as Army watches as they required limited servicing and could be worn for many years.
