Which advantages do automatic watches have?
In addition to such emotional aspects, automatic watches also have tangible advantages: Thanks to their sophisticated automatics, they always wind themselves when worn - there's no need to turn the cogs every day. There is neither a battery that needs to be changed regularly, nor a charging cable that can be misplaced, forgotten or lost. This independence is also an important contribution to environmental protection, because neither batteries nor electrical parts need to be disposed of. Last but not least, the automatic watch always offers something to talk about in convivial gatherings among watch connoisseurs.
Why automatic watches are expensive?
Automatic watches are a marvel of technology: Hundreds of extremely precisely manufactured parts interlock here and interact perfectly to measure time reliably. Of course, this has its price. Then it depends on which materials and movements are used. Automatic watches from ADVOLAT always have a lens made of high-quality sapphire crystal, are made of corrosion-free 316L stainless steel and are water-resistant to 50 meters.

How much movement do automatic watches need?
Thanks to their mechanism, automatic watches wind themselves up when worn. The kinetic energy is stored by a spring mechanism as a so-called power reserve, so that the watch can be safely taken off and put away overnight. If it is left lying around for longer, it stops. Then you have to reset the hands and date display and wind the watch via the side wheel. If you wear several automatic watches in turn and find the constant winding and setting annoying, it is best to get a watch winder: this not only serves the convenience, but also prevents the oil from thickening, which can lead to damage to the movement.
How long do automatic watches last?
High-quality automatic watches like ADVOLAT's can last practically forever, provided you take a few things to heart. Basically, you should avoid extreme loads and hard shocks. Should a mishap happen, ADVOLAT automatic watches are generally repairable. In addition, it is recommended to have the watch completely serviced and the oil changed about every three to four years. We are happy to perform this service for watches from our company.
