For generations automatic wristwatches have had a long-standing air of elegance and prestige. The interior self-winding mechanism of an automatic timepiece prominently displays precision craftsmanship and horological excellence at its finest. It is no wonder that watch devotees and collectors prize automatic timepieces far above quartz movement watches.
