All You Need to Know About Different Kinds of Watch Movements

by Lavina Sharma 10 year's Experience in Fashion Designing.
Whether you go to a watch store or rummage through websites selling watches, you mostly look at its design and price tag and then make a decision. There is no harm in shopping for watches like this. However, there are tons of other things which must be considered when looking for that perfect watch and mechanics is one of them. A lot of people remain oblivious about the watch movements and ignore them completely. On the other hand, some people look for the mechanics of the watch alongside aesthetics, functionality, and cost and end up buying a better one. To help you buy a better watch, we have compiled a list of different types of watch movements. Have a look:  

1. Mechanical Movement:
 It is one of the most common types of watch movements. Powered by the mainspring, it initiates when unwinding of the spring takes place which gradually transmits the energy to keep the watch working. Watches with mechanical movement come with an oscillator. All the latest watches today that come with mechanical movement are also equipped with an oscillator which moves around 28,000 times per hour. Another important part of these watches is the balance spring. With the help of the balance spring, oscillations are regulated. Moreover, they are mostly self-winding watches, meaning you don’t have to fret about the batteries. 

2. Automatic Mechanical Movement: 
The next comes the automatic mechanical movement. Watches with automatic mechanical movement come with a transparent back, so it becomes easier for the wearer to look through their mechanical movements. Working with the help of a rotor which comes in the shape of a fan, they don’t need winding. But, if you do not want to hamper the working of your automatic mechanical movement watch, consider wearing it for more than 12 hours on a daily basis. 

3. Quartz Movement: 
Watches which come with quartz movement are really popular these days. These watches come with a battery and have a digital display. A few quartz movement watches come with an analog time display. But, if you want to take advantage of both the display types, it’s better to invest in an ana-digi watch. 

If you want to purchase one of the best watches in India, online shopping must be considered as it gives you a plethora of options to choose from. Also, you can check the specifications of the watch including its movement in advance which makes it further easy for you to decide where to invest your money and time.
