Designer Watches Types

Mechanical watches are traditional watches that need to be manually wound in order to work. More often than not, winding occurs depending upon the instructions of the watch maker. Mechanical watches are rarely seen nowadays since quartz, automatic and kinetic watches came into the market.

Quartz watches are battery powered and the battery is the one that causes the quartz to vibrate moving the hands of the clock.  Automatic and kinetic watches use the wearer’s movements to generate energy that would be used to move the hands of the clock.  

Automatic watches rewind themselves whereas kinetic ones does not need any winding.  Solar watches use light as the main source of power.  Solar watches tend to be more accurate and have the same accuracy as that of a quartz watch.
