Maintaing Your Automatic Watch

*/?>

The movements of automatic watches possess a metal pendulum, or rotor, that spins as the wearer’s wrist moves throughout the day. The rotor, which is connected to a winding mechanism and main spring, generates power when in motion. Unlike other types of watch movements, automatic timepieces can maintain power solely from the movement of the wearer’s wrist. Here are some tips to ensure to the longevity of yocorum-romvlvs-perpetual-calendar-movementur automatic watch:

  • For the daily wearer: Even though your watch will continue to run if you wear it every day, it is still good to wind it once every two weeks with the crown in order to keep the oil fluid and the wheels in motion.
  • For the occasional wearer: It is a good idea to wind your watch at least once a week to ensure the best running order of your watch’s movement. By winding your watch you are preventing the gears from sticking as well as keeping the oils from drying out.
  • If you haven’t worn your watch in a while: it is best to wind the stopped watch before putting it on. Winding the crown several times will provide the movement with enough power to begin running. Unlike mechanical movements, automatic watches can never be overwound!

Even the most prestigious brands recommend the occasional servicing of their timepieces. It is important that a complete servicing be performed every 4-6 years in order to prevent the unwanted entry of moisture through worn gaskets. In addition, worn parts can be destructive to the watch’s movement if not tended to as quickly as possible.
