"In the realm of mechanical watches, it all boils down to one of two things: manual winding or automatic," explains Vincent Brasesco, VP of Sotheby's Luxury & Watches Specialist. "In a manual winding watch, you must manually turn the crown every day to power it. Conversely, in an automatic watch, a weighted rotor attached to the back of the movement handles the task for you! As you move your wrist throughout the day, this rotor winds the replica watch, ensuring it keeps accurate time." It sounds straightforward because it is. However, watch purists in collector circles might argue otherwise. Nicholas Biebuyck, TAG Heuer's Heritage Director, notes, "By winding the watch yourself, you create an emotional connection, keeping your watch alive. But it's not akin to caring for a Tamagotchi; it's about convenience." So, if convenience is your priority and you've never been adept at tending to digital pets, explore this year's hottest automatic watches, where telling time becomes the easiest part of your day. 1.
