Automatic watches – what benefits do they have?
On top of purely emotional aspects, automatic watches do have substantial benefits. They include a rotating flywheel mass, which serves to automatically recharge the watch whenever worn. Hand-winding, like in mechanical watches, is not needed, as long as the watch is exposed to sufficient body movement. There is no battery which you have to replace time and again, and no charger that you need to remember or carry around. Automatic watches do not only stand for autonomy, they also help protect our planet, since no batteries or electronics have to be disposed of. And last but not least, when meeting up with other watch enthusiasts, your automatic will always be a great topic of conversation.
