An automatic watch is a watch with an automatic movement. This movement is a mechanical movement with an automatic winding mechanism, i.e. it is self-winding. The watch winds when in motion, i.e. when the watch is worn on the owner’s wrist. Stored energy can usually keep an unworn automatic watch running for 36 to 80 hours. This watch was first invented in 1923, not coincidentally just a few years after the First World War, at a time when the wristwatch finally came into prominence. Anytime has a huge selection of automatic watches on offer. The appeal of an automatic watch is immense for watch lovers: being mechanical, it evokes a time of handcrafted precision in watchmaking and of the finer workings of the movement, which is why these watches continue to be so popular.
