2017 Automatic Time Essentials…

Serious watch collectors would agree that nothing compares to the precision craftsmanship and expertise of an automatic or mechanical Swiss-made timepiece. Both share a rich heritage of watchmaking excellence that dates back for generations since the very first mechanical pocket watches were produced in the 17th Century.
