Wondering what is an automatic watch?
An automatic watch is a timepiece that continues to operate due to the regular motion of your wrist. More exactly, automatic watches don’t need winding if worn daily. The energy is stored by using a half-disc metal weight, called rotor, which is usually shaped in a semi-circle and is connected to the mainspring via a series of gears. With each movement of the wrist, the rotor spins, transferring energy and automatically winding the mainspring.
What is Power Reserve?
This the amount of time it takes for a fully wound watch to unwind when not worn. Most automatic watches have a power reserve of 24 hours to five days or even more. This time means that your watch can run for that duration on a full wind.
What happens when my automatic watch stops working?
If your automatic watch is unworn for more than its power reserve time, it will stop running. But do not freak out, even just a couple of turns of the crown or a brief shake will usually get it started again. In fact, an idle mechanical watch can be fully wound with 30 rotations to restore its energy. Simply give it a good shake, set the date and time and your watch is ready to go.
Wondering how do you wind an automatic watch?
A watch is wound via its crown and usually clockwise. Keep the crown in its pushed-in position and then try to wind the crown clockwise. If your watch has a screw-down crown, then you will need to unscrew the crown before winding.
