Automatic Time-Keepers

Daylight savings time took place this past weekend and if you’re like millions of other Americans, you had to manually update your timepieces, moving each one hour ahead. Of course, if you had an atomic watch you would not need to do this, since atomic watches and clocks synchronize with international Atomic clocks throughout the globe, providing precise time-keeping accuracy without having to manually reset your watch.

Having a very similar name, it’s very easy to confuse Atomic watches with Automatic watches. An automatic or self-winding wristwatch features a built-in mainspring mechanism inside that winds automatically from the natural motion of a user’s arm and provides sufficient energy to run the watch and avoid manual winding.PT6188-SS001-331

In 1770  Abraham Louis Perrelet invented the first automatic timepiece with a pocket watch model designed to operate when the watch wearer started walking, utilizing an oscillating weight that moved up and down.

Prior to Perrelet’s self-winding mechanism design, mechanical watches required manual winding almost daily to keep running smoothly.

Automatic timepieces are the focus of attention this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com, during their Automatic Time Event, featuring approximately 300 automatic timepieces from the most prestigious watchmakers in the world, including Maurice Lacroix, Rolex, Revue Thommen, Breitling, Invicta, Swiss Legend, Graham, Bedat & Co., Bulova Accutron II, Rotary, Marcel Drucker, Stuhrling Original, Haurex, Momo Design, Oris, Red Line, Luminox, Bell & Ross, Paul Picot and Baume & Mercier.

The Maurice Lacroix Pontos automatic chronograph is an excellent choice. This Swiss-made timepiece is meticulously crafted inside and out from the premium grade stainless steel case in a black ion-plate finish to the intricate mechanical movement inside.

The case is presented on a high-performance black rubber strap. An exhibition skeleton caseback lets you see the precision movement inside. A stationary bezel encircles the black dial with a tachymeter outer dial, three subdials and luminous hands.

Features include an automatic date calendar, small-second, 30-minute and 12-hour registers. An anti-reflective sapphire crystal above the dial provides clear, accurate viewing. Chronograph is 43mm in diameter, 16mm thick and is water-resistant to 50 meters or 166 feet.

Are You Ready To Go Automatic?

Nothing says time-honored elegance and premium-crafted precision more than an automatic wristwatch. Self-winding automatic timepieces are among the most coveted styles for men and women in the world today. A true automatic or self-winding watch features a built-in mainspring mechanism that winds automatically from the natural motion of a user’s arm and provides sufficient energy to run the watch and avoid manual winding.

Abraham Louis Perrelet invented the first automatic timepiece in 1770 with a pocket watch designed to operate when the watch wearer started walking, using an oscillating weight that moved up and down. The self-winding mechanism Perrelet created was revolutionary, since mechanical watches used prior to this period required manual winding.INVICTA-12720
