Ever heard about automatic watches? Want to try to buy it but got confused about how it works or how to maintain it? Do I need to have a watch winder? Is there anything else you should know?
What is an Automatic Watch?
Automatic watches get their energy from the movement of the wearer. Even though the first automatic watches appeared as early as the 18th century, they remained a niche product until the rise of the wristwatch in the early 20th century.
How does Automatic Watch Work?
Every automatic watch has a rotor made of a heavy material like tungsten, gold, or platinum so that they are powerful enough to wind the movement. As the wearer moves their arm, the rotor swings, thus setting the gears in motion and winding the spring. If your watch has a glass case back, simply flip it over to see this process in real time. Parlent collection has a range of transparent back covers so you can see the process yourself.
How to Maintain Automatic Watch?
Do not apply too much pressure when turning the crown, do it when you are not wearing it. You can rotate the crown about 20-30 times until the long needle moves. After that you can set the time and date. Press enter crown when you're done. To keep the mainspring last is to avoid to overturn the crown, enough for the long needle to move and avoid watches from magnetic fields for longer life.
