The Sixties (1960s) was a decade of social revolution and passion. In the United States, two huge social movements swept across the whole country: the hippies “counterculture”, and feminism (Women’s Liberation) that demanded more freedom and rights for women. Women’s fashion at that time reflected the influence of such movements.
Wakmann Watch ladies collections at the time were marked with ground-breaking designs, which included Incabloc shock-resistant movement, sapphire crystal, tailored bracelet, weave design cover opens to reveal concealed watch, amongst many others. These new designs were specifically aimed to create a perfect match between Wakmann ladies watches and the 1960s fashion trend. Other new introductions included the 14K gold and diamond bracelet watches collection – fitted with 5 to 40 diamonds, and a choice of 13 different bracelets.
Mechanical watches are classic vintage pieces, beautiful displays of minimalism and old-school features. Some of the most elegant mechanical watches, for true vintage enthusiasts, are now available in our vintage mechanical watch collection.
About mechanical watches
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 which must 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.
