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.

What Makes You Move?

Whether you’re considering making your first major watch acquisition or looking to enhance your timepiece collection, there are many aspects to take into consideration, especially the watch type, brand, characteristics, cost and movement.

Once you’ve settled on a specific brand or brands, the style and cost of your new timepiece, you’re left with deciding upon which watch movement will be right for you – automatic, mechanical or quartz. Each movement has both its advantages and disadvantages too.

Mechanical watches feature time-honored precision and craftsmanship and hold the distinction of being the oldest watch movement around, dating back to the early 17th Century. Mechanical watches have a spring driven mechanism inside and are powered by a series of gears oscillating back and forth at a constant rate. The one caveat with owning a mechanical watch is that it must be wound by hand on an almost daily basis.

Breitling Windrider Automatic Chronograph

Automatic watches feature a built-in mainspring mechanism that wind automatically from the natural motion of the user’s wrist and provides sufficient energy to keep the movement running without manual winding. Automatic watches however must be worn almost continuously to keep the movement inside running and require a watch winder when not in use.

Quartz watches have a vibrating quartz mineral inside that operates with a battery that converts the vibrations into power and time. They do not require self or manual winding. However, the batteries inside must be changed periodically over a period of anywhere from eighteen to thirty-six months.

The three movements are the focus of attention this week at TheWatchery.com and many prominent highly sought-after timepieces featuring Automatic, Mechanical and Quartz movements are featured in the promotion, including styles from Rolex, Cartier, Breitling, Ebel, Bedat & Co.

Oris Swiss-Made Excellence

In today’s digital age, the old-world precision and craftsmanship of an Oris Swiss-made timepiece stands above the rest. Founded in 1904 by watchmakers Paul Cattin and Georges Christian in Hölstein, Switzerland, Oris Watches are renowned for their meticulous mechanical and automatic watch movements, which are still produced in-house at their Hölstein production facilities.

In fact every aspect of an Oris timepiece from the intricate movements inside… to the case, crystal and band on the outside is assembled at their Hölstein facilities, which has grown to make Oris one of the largest watch producers in Switzerland.

In 1966, Oris introduced it’s highly regarded Caliber 645 automatic movement, featuring a 25-jewel lever escapement that is still being used in many timepieces today. The brand’s Caliber 581 complication automatic movement was one of the first watch movements to offer moon phase display, date, day of the week and an independent second time zone as well. Introduced in 1991, the Caliber 581 is also being used today as well.ORIS-0167775777054-701000-SD

Although Oris is privately owned and operated today, it was briefly owned by ASUAG holdings during the 1970’s until 1982, a time when inexpensive quartz watches were introduced to disappointing results.

The 1982 buyout was led by Ulrich Herzog, who transitioned Oris into the global watch leader it is today.  The brand’s Jazz series timepieces introduced in 2000, featuring tributes to music legends Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Frank Sinatra, Thelonious Monk and Bob Dylan furthered the brand’s global recognition and prominence.

In addition to cultural timepieces, Oris also focuses on racing chronographs, aviation timepieces and diver’s watches. Oris has been the sole watch supplier to the BMW Formula One racing team since 2003. The brand’s Big Crown pilot watches are highly regarded and revered by pilots, while the Oris Prodiver model delivers water-resistance to 1,000 meters.

Trunk Show Watch Finds!

Trunk shows are popular and viable events for fashion designers and design houses to exhibit their goods at exclusive venues for a limited time. Once the limited event is over, the show moves to another location, usually in another city. Hence, the trunk show moniker is more of a metaphorical trade term, since the promotion is  a traveling event and no trunks may actually be used.

The promotion is extremely popular in both the bridal and jewelry fields, since they allow retailers the opportunity to showcase exclusive one-of-a-kind fashions and jewelry creations, they would not normally carry in their shops.

Bridal trunk shows from popular fashion designers Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors are widely attended by newly engaged brides to not only give them ideas for their wedding day, but make important selections for the big day as well.BREITLING-RB0210B3-BC19-SD

It’s Your Move…

Let’s face it, many of us purchase a watch based on its exterior aesthetics, magnitude and design.  Although luxury watches reflect both an air of prestige and status, they are also an indispensable fashion accessory today for both men and women.

The style, size and brand appeal of a timepiece are easily the very first factors we consider when making a watch purchase. Although many of us may take this for granted, the watch movement inside is another aspect we should seriously consider as well.

The movement of a watch, which is also known as the calibre is the interior engine that keeps the timepiece operating smoothly and precisely. There are three movements to consider when buying a watch: Mechanical, Automatic and Quartz.INVICTA-14630

A mechanical movement timepiece features Old-World precision and craftsmanship. It must be wound manually by hand over durations of time to remain operating precisely. Mechanical watches carry a centuries-old heritage of expert watchmaking and are the most costly to produce in regards to their bespoke quality.

An automatic watch features precision, self-winding mechanical movement inside and relies on the motion or movement of the wrist to remain operating smoothly. When not in use, an automatic watch will wind down in 10 to 72 hours depending upon the power reserve inside. A watch winder is recommended to keep an automatic watch operating when it is not in use.

Quartz movement watches offer the most accurate display of time and are powered by batteries, which have to be replaced about every 12 to 24 months. Quartz timepieces are usually more economical and are also considered a good value.

Interestingly, it is very easy to tell the difference between an automatic/mechanical watch and a quartz watch by the movement on the sweeping second hand. Automatic and mechanical watches have a smooth second hand operation that runs continuously in a fluid sweeping movement. Quartz models have a second hand operation with a pulsating repeated starting and stopping motion.CHANEL-H1008-J12-SD

You’ll find many prestigious mechanical, automatic and quartz timepieces for men and women at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com, including styles from today’s most sought-after watchmakers: Cartier, Maurice Lacroix, Breitling, Bvlgari, Omega, TAG Heuer, Ritmo Mundo, Invicta, Gucci, Movado, Jean Richard, Frederique Constant, Swiss Legend, Ebel, Chanel, Oris, Bulova, Maurice Lacroix, Eterna, Versace and Bedat & Co.
