Automatic Watches - the art of watchmaking in perfection

Automatic watches are mechanical watches whose mainspring is wound by a small rotor by natural arm movements of the wearer. Abraham-Louis Perrelet is said to have developed a pocket watch with a rotating flywheel around 1770, and thus laid the foundation for this idea. However, John Harwood is being considered as the inventor of the automatic wristwatch. On 01/09/1924, the patent for his invention on which he had already fiddled since 1914 was granted. In cooperation with the pipe works company A. Schild (AS) and the watch factory Fortis Harwood, he designed a wristwatch production series with automatic winding. Even today, the Harwood Watch Co. Manufactures Automatic wrist watches according to Harwood's principles.

A true masterpiece of watchmaking is the high degree of precision necessary to accommodate an automatic work on a small space. Such a wristwatch offers many special features. Thus, the spring is prevented from over-winding with the so-called friction clutch. In addition, you can store these timepieces easily without them stopping directly. This is made possible by the power reserve, which designates the period in which the complete reared movement continues running after the last movement.

Since no battery is required to operate the watch with the automatic movement, these watches also help to conserve the environment. Furthermore, all the timepieces of this type are now waterproof and shockproof because nowadays only very high quality automatic watches are offered. Should a defect occur, which occurs only rarely, they can be easily solved by the watchmaker.

Initially automatic timepieces were asked only by men. Nowadays, the demand for ladies automatic watches increases. The design is diverse. Whether metal or leather bracelet, Roman or Arabic numerals, round or even rectangular dial, the phantasy is virtually unlimited. This range is complemented by high quality materials, very accurate time display and ease of use.
