Which is better for automatic mechanical watches and manual mechanical watches?
【One】

Automatic mechanical watches and manual mechanical watches have different power sources

~

1⃣️

The power source of the automatic mechanical watch is vibration

The watch is worn on the hand, and the person will inevitably be shaken when moving the watch.

There is a structure on the table that collects and converts the vibration energy into mechanical rotation energy.

The watch is worn on the hand if the spring is not tightened

It will automatically tighten the spring when it is shaken

If you put the watch in a place where there is no vibration

It usually stops moving within 24 hours.

2⃣️

Manual mechanical power source is “clockwork”

So you need to always wind up

Mainly due to the need to tighten the spring again after the spring inside the movement is released, it will turn to the crown of the watch.

I will hear the sound when I wind up.

【two】

The movement structure of the automatic mechanical watch and the manual mechanical watch are different

1⃣️

The internal movement parts of the automatic mechanical watch are composed of mechanical parts, which are spring-wound balance watches powered by clockwork.

2⃣️

The movement of the manual mechanical watch includes:

Transmission system, original motion system, winding needle system, escapement speed control system, pointer system

The movement parts are made up of splints and screws together

~

【three】

Automatic mechanical watch and manual mechanical watch have different thicknesses

1⃣️

The automatic mechanical watch is an automatic disk using the bottom of the movement.

Power generated by swinging left and right to drive the spring to generate energy

But the relative thickness of the watch itself

Will be thicker than the average hand-wound watch

2⃣️

The watch mechanical watch does not have this part, so it looks thinner.

【four】

Automatic mechanical watch and manual mechanical watch which is better

~

Someone will definitely ask

Which is better for automatic mechanical watches and manual mechanical watches?

In fact, these two mechanical watches have their own advantages.

Automatic mechanical watch without manual winding

Is powered by the arm swing to power the movement

Therefore, it must be worn for more than eight hours a day.

In order to ensure accurate time

Therefore, the automatic mechanical watch is not suitable for people with less exercise.

Like a person or an old man working in the office

This type of group is more suitable for manual mechanical watches.
