At the heart of every automatic watch lies a marvel of engineering and ingenuity. Unlike their quartz counterparts, automatic watches operate through the kinetic energy generated by the wearer's movements. Central to this mechanism is the rotor—a small, weighted disc that pivots with each motion of the wrist. As the rotor spins, it winds the mainspring—a coiled source of potential energy within the movement. This energy is then released in a controlled manner, powering the gears and hands that display the time with precision and elegance. For optimal performance, automatic watches are designed to be worn regularly, utilising the natural motion of the wearer to maintain their operation. Typically, wearing the watch for six to eight hours a day ensures it remains fully wound and ready to accompany its owner through every moment, capturing both the passage of time and the essence of craftsmanship.
