Today, an automatic watch is most common, with many different styles available. The weighted rotor means the watch never has to be wound if worn regularly, using the energy of your movements to wind the mainspring. They make for an effortless design and improved durability.
Those with thorough appreciation of the craftmanship in a luxury timepiece choose a mechanical watch. This type of movement requires manual winding of the mainspring, by hand or sometimes with a bespoke tool, to keep the watch in good time. They allow for a transparent back, revealing the miniature components expertly assembled by our skilled watchmakers, while their simple mechanics permit a slim profile.
