Charges by wrist movement. Never needs batteries.
At the heart of our current range of timepieces are self-winding (automatic) mechanical movements. Unlike the standard, no-frills quartz watches that run on batteries, mechanical timepieces are powered by energy stored and harnessed through an intricate clockwork of tiny gears and springs, a technology that preceded quartz watches by almost a thousand years.
Mechanical movements, with their high level of craftsmanship and precision engineering, cost far more than quartz movements and are preferred for use in higher-end timepieces.
We chose these movements for their class-leading reliability, robustness and smooth second hand sweep that's seen in fine timepieces. They're easy to maintain and should run trouble-free for many years.
