Go Automatic!

Watch collectors and aficionados would agree that nothing compares to precision and craftsmanship of an automatic timepiece.

For generations, both automatic and mechanical wristwatches have held a high level of prestige and esteem for their intricate bespoke movements inside, premium quality and artistry.

There’s one caveat to owning either an automatic or mechanical timepiece and that is keeping them running. Mechanical watches, which are highly regarded for their Old World workmanship and expertise, require manual winding on a daily basis to keep the watching operating smoothly.OMEGA-231.13.44.52.04.001

Automatic watches rely on the movement and motion of the user’s wrist. However, when an automatic watch is not in use it will wind-down in a duration of 10 to 72 hours, depending on the power reserve inside. One solution to keeping an automatic watch running is a watch winder, which is designed to replicate the movement of the hand and keep an automatic timepiece running proficiently.

Precision, self-winding automatic watches are highlighted this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com with the Go Automatic Event, featuring over 250 automatic men’s and women’s watches from today’s most sough-after watch brands, including Breitling, Omega, Raymond Weil, Maurice Lacroix, Bulova, Eterna, Ebel, Ritmo Mundo, MOMO Design, Bedat & Co., Lucien Piccard, Versace, Jean Richard and Swiss Legend.

What’s more, an automatic watch winder is included with every automatic watch featured in the week-long promotion at TheWatchery.com.
