Mechanical Watches – The Magic and Mystique

Watch. It’s not a verb, it’s a noun. Wristwatch is more specific, of course, but pocket watches are cool too. You know the popular brands, but what do you think of when you hear the word watch? No matter what comes to your mind, there are a few interesting details about watches:

Even the cheapest quartz digital watch is more accurate than most high-end mechanical watches with クーポン. However, there are many things to consider other than accuracy. After all, accuracy is not really discernible on a day to day basis. Who among us is able to discern a watch’s accuracy within a couple of moments per day? Let’s say that today your Daniel Wellington tells the time correctly today but tomorrow it is 2 seconds fast or slow. Can you perceive the difference? What if it is 2 minutes fast or slow? Most likely, you’ll get to where you’re going either on time or late based on whether or not you are a prompt person.

Well, the purpose of this article isn’t to judge or criticize anyone’s personal habits but to illustrate an important fact: Cheap quartz watches will keep time far more accurately than a high quality mechanical watch but accuracy isn’t the only reason why we wear them. So, why DO people wear mechanical watches? Even more importantly, why do people spend thousands on high-end watches?

The reasons for such are personal to the wearer but some of the reasons might be:

Much like a musical instrument, a race car engine, or the ability to land on the moon, there is a satisfaction in experiencing the well-tuned precision of a mechanical device.

Have you ever flown a kite? If so, maybe you experienced the feeling of flying while your feet are planted firmly on the ground. A mechanical watch can give a feeling of being “connected” to the passing of time.

Some people accessorize with shoes, glasses, jewelry and other eye catching objects but watches are also a great choice. Watches can have added bling, gold, and extra large size. Just wearing a certain brand or type of watch will catch people’s attention.

When it comes to luxury watches, the cost is in the details. Luxury watches are made with expensive materials and might be hand made by expert watchmakers and can also be certified accurate to within certain specifications. Additionally, higher end watches may hold their value over time or even increase in value in some cases.

Mechanical watches usually have a second hand that “sweeps” instead of “ticking.” This effect gives a mechanical watch a special quality when observed by the eye. A sweeping second hand has a sort of organic feeling that more accurately depicts the passing of time than the start-stop motion of a ticking second hand.

Mechanical watches don’t have to be expensive. Mechanical watches can be bought for under $100.00 and still be accurate and durable enough for daily use.
