Vintage Mechanical Watches For Men And Women
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time,as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically, with the help of a small battery.
A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring whichmust be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance, a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.
