Mechanical Watches

In today’s time, mechanical watches are worn more as a style statement than as a timepiece. The mechanical timepieces were replaced by the digital and quartz watches long back and have become much of a collector’s choice. Unlike the automatic mechanical watches which house a power reserve indicator, the mechanical timepieces were equipped with a mainspring.

Mechanical Watches: A Classical Era

With an aesthetic appeal, the mechanical watches carry the classical tradition of watch making. Since ages, it is considered a craftsmanship of a perfect watchmaker to repair a mechanical timepiece. The mainspring in the timepiece needs to be wound periodically with a number of gear wheels to drive the power wheel.
Compared to the quartz watches, the mechanical watches are not accurate timekeepers. With a traditional and classical touch, these watches are rare to find and are also generally very expensive.
