The Three Basic Types of Movement Watches:  Which is Best?

Movement watches have internal mechanisms and external moving hands.   Digital watches brightly display the time and cellular watches use smart technology to connect to the Internet.  


When it comes to fashion, taste, and style, nothing beats a movement watch.  Movement watches are elegant, often salute history, and never go out of fashion.  And, let’s face it, they look fabulous  – sexy even (think James Bond).  Such is why so many watch companies feature attractive individuals on movement watch ads: Steve McQueen, Patrick Dempsey, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron, John F. Kennedy, George Clooney, Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman – and that’s a short list.  You won’t find similar ads for digital or cellular watches.  And, those watches simply don’t have movement watches’ amazing looks.    


Movement watches go with anything, be it jeans, workout gear, suits, and formal wear.  


The Three Kinds of Movement Watches


There are three kinds of movement watches:


  • Mechanical Watches:  a mainspring runs this watch.  It requires hand or automatic winding.   


  • Quartz Watches:  batteries power these watches.  


  • Automatic Watches:  the wearer’s natural motions power these watches.


So, which is best?  Automatic Watches.  Why?  The owner never needs to wind them or change a battery.  They simply need to wear them.  Their motions transfer energy to the watch’s internal mechanism.  Other reasons:


  • They always keep correct time.
  • They require very little maintenance.  
  • They last forever and the owner can pass the automatic watch down through generations.


But, what happens when the wearer is not wearing their automatic watch?  Or, maybe they have several watches and alternate between them.  How do they keep them running?  How do they display them and keep them safe?  Easy.  A Watch Winder.


What is a Watch Winder?  


As its name suggests, a watch winder keeps an automatic watch properly wound.  The watch winder’s motor mimics the wearer’s movements and continues the required energy transfer.

A watch winder also attractively displays automatic watches.  Fingerprint based watch winders additionally offer added security and ease of access.
