  • Modern Movement Types

    Self-winding Movement

    Self-winding mechanics were first designed in the late sixties and early seventies by the manufacturers from Europe and Japan. Since then this type of movement has become very popular all over the world. Self-winding automatics are simply mechanical watches that do not need to be wound manually every day. The special part that makes it possible is called a rotor and it moves with the body motion, thus winding the timepiece automatically with the help of kinetic energy. By wearing the luxury watch with self-winding movement for about 12 hours a day, the owner provides the mechanism with enough motion to keep the mainspring fully wound. If the timepiece has not been worn for a certain period of time, the owner should simply wind it with the help of the crown. The modern, technically advanced fine watches with self-winding movements can work for a week or even more without being worn or wound. Some luxury watch brands produce fascinating timepieces with skeletonized case backs that allow the owner to see the spinning rotor. Orient CFT00004B, for example, features a transparent dial which shows the automatic mechanical movement. Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Tourbillon luxury watch is equipped with an exhibition window that shows off the delicate hand-winding movement made by the talented Swiss craftsmen. Other brands manufacturing self-winding high end watches are Patek Philippe, Breguet, Baume Mercier, etc.

  • Quartz Movement

    Quartz movement, one of the most popular types of movements nowadays, is powered by a battery. It has its name due to a quartz crystal inside. The battery passes an electric current through it to keep the crystal oscillating. This vibrating part drives a motor that moves the watch hands at a constant rate to ensure the accurate working. The luxury watch with quartz movement is very easy to recognize: its second hand has the tell-tale tick, while the second hand of any mechanical timepiece moves smoothly. Since fine watches with quartz movements are equipped with batteries, the power reserve lasts for a year, approximately, so the batteries should be changed from time to time. High end luxury watches featuring quartz movement are so popular because of their efficiency. These timepieces lose only a few seconds per month and roughly one minute per year. One of the main advantages of quartz fine watches is their affordability in comparison with automatic devices. Moreover, the owner does not have to worry about daily winding. Luxury watches with quartz movements require less maintenance and fewer time adjustments than their mechanical counterparts. They also can have either an analog dial or a digital display. The main luxury watch brands manufacture timepieces with quartz movement. Among them are Patek Philippe, Chopard, Cartier, Omega, Rolex and many others.

  • Mechanical Movement

    The interior mechanism of a watch is called the movement. There are quartz, automatic, and mechanical movements. The characteristic feature of the mechanical movement is the mainspring that needs to be wound in order to store energy. By unwinding slowly, this small piece release energy and makes the timepiece work. Mechanical movements can be of two types: those, which must be wound manually, and those requiring natural body motions to wound themselves automatically. Every luxury watch with mechanical movement has a definite power reserve (from 24 hours to 8 days). Everything depends on the model and the brand. Those buying a luxury watch with this type of movement should remember that it is necessary to set the time regularly, as mechanical movement is prone to certain inaccuracy. Many famous manufacturers of fine watches appreciate the old European tradition of watchmaking, creating fascinating high end watches with mechanical movements that can last for generations. They are usually quite expensive because the delicate pieces of a mechanical movement take many months to produce. These fine watches are considered to be more exclusive than their mass-produced quartz counterparts. Among the luxury watch brands that manufacture timepieces with mechanical movements are Patek Philippe, Baume & Mercier, Maurice Lacroix, Audemars Piguet and many others. Watch connoisseurs all over the world prefer mechanical movement due to its long-standing reliability and timeless technique.

  • Manual Movement

    A simple but ingenious mechanism of the manual movement consists of a coiled spring that stores energy after being wound. Although it's the oldest watchmaking technique, it's still very popular due to its versatility and beauty. To make the watch work, the owner should turn the crown to wind the mainspring. After that the piece will unwind very slowly to release energy through a system of gears and springs. Winding intervals depend on the model. Manufacturers always mention the power reserve capacity of the movement in description of their luxury watches. It can be from 24 hours to a couple of days. Some models of high end watches require winding every day, but there are fine watches like the Panerai Luminor 1950 GMT that needs to be wound every eight days. It may seem too annoying to wind the timepiece so often, but many watch owners have the habit to do it, and it becomes a part of a daily routine and a cherished ritual. The most respected luxury watch brands manufacture amazing timepieces with hand-wound movements. Rolex, for example, produces a Cellini line of fine watches for ladies with manual movement. Audemars Piguet manufactures many different models of luxury watches for men and women that feature hand-wound movements. Some brands create fascinating timepieces with skeletonized case backs and dials that allow seeing the inner workings of a movement. You can find such models in Breguet, Hublot and Maurice Lacroix collections.

  • Autoquartz

    This intricate mechanism is a delicate combination of an automatic mechanical and quartz movement. The most interesting part is that autoquartz luxury watch has no springs to wear out and no battery to replace, but still functions with the absolute accuracy of a quartz movement. The autoquartz movement consists of the parts used in quartz and mechanical fine watches. There is Integrated Circuit, the Rotor, Dial Train, Stepping Motor, and the additional part called Capacitor. This small mechanism stores electrical energy and can hold enough power to keep the watch working for about 100 days. Another advantage of autoquartz high end watches is that they are harmless, presenting no environmental impact of batteries. Several famous luxury watch brands employ autoquartz movement in their timepieces. Japanese manufacturer Seiko was the first to present the technique in 1986. It was called the Automatic Generating System (AGM). After 5 years the company launched Kinetic brand that nowadays produces a wide range of high end luxury watches with autoquartz movement. Most of the Kinetic fine watches are medium-priced, but there are also expensive autoquartz timepieces with different complications. The Swiss brand ETA SA created several automatic quartz movements and certified them under the name Autoquartz. Today such companies as Tissot, Longines, Omega, Wenger, Hermès, Franck Muller and many more use this accurate technology in their luxury watches.

  • Automatic Movement

    Choosing a luxury watch with the right movement is an important part of the purchasing decision. The movement is by far the most important part of every watch. This is the heart, the engine that brings a timepiece to life. An automatic movement (it is also called self-winding) winds itself by the motion of the wrist. An intricate series of delicate components work together to power the watch. The precise engineering of the small weight (rotor) transfers energy and winds the mainspring. Luxury watches with this type of movement do not requite daily hand winding, but if the watch has not been worn for a while, it needs to be wound occasionally. Fine watches with self-winding movement are quite popular because the owner doesn't have to bother about everyday manual winding. An automatic movement consists of the same parts as a regular one: Crown, Escapement, Mainspring, Balance Wheel, Gear Train, and a Dial Train. The Rotor is a part designed to wind the timepiece while being worn. Many famous luxury watch brands, such as Tag Heuer, Piaget, Tourneau, and Patek Philippe manufacture fascinating automatic timepieces for men and women. More affordable fine watches brands like Swatch, Tissot, and Wenger also produce models with self-winding movement, so it's not difficult to find a luxury watch within the price range that suits all tastes and occasions.
