An automatic watch is a movement that uses the natural motion of the wearer to provide energy to wind the mainspring.
It is believed that Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Perrelet invented the first automatic watch movement in the 1770s. However, it was only after WWII that automatic watch movements were popularized.
John Harwood, a watch repairer from England, patented the automatic wristwatch in 1928 and began producing them in a factory in Switzerland.
Due to the high level of craftsmanship and precise engineering involved, automatic movement watches are considered a very sophisticated power solution. The true heart of the watch.
When treated with care and regular maintenance, an automatic watch can last a lifetime.
