  • Hello - what is the accuracy of the mechanical v the quartz and how long from a full wind will you get before it stops?

    Hi, Great question, sorry its taken so long to reply!

    Here's some info regarding Quartz v Mechanical on all watch makes:


    "Automatic watches are charged by movement. and they are mechanical . These watches do not contain batteries and therefore are not always as accurate as battery-powered quartz watches.
     
    By moving the watch as it is worn on the wrist, power is stored within a mainspring in the watch. When fully "charged up" the power reserve usually lasts for approximately 24 hours therefore if an automatic watch is fully charged and then not moved, it will run out of charge and stop in around 24 hours.
     
    When an automatic watch stops completely after running out of charge, it should be 'initiated' by winding it manually. This means turning the crown clockwise approximately 10 times, or until it starts to feel tight. If an automatic watch is not initiated after stopping, it may run out of charge, slow down, or keep stopping and starting.
     
    Always re-initiate your automatic watch after it stops completely.
     
    The amount of an automatic watch is charged can be increased by wearing a tight fitting strap - so the internal parts of the watch move and charge the movement, rather than having just the watch itself moving around on your wrist.
     
    It should also be noted that automatic watches are generally not as accurate as quartz watches. It is not abnormal to notice time variances of -30 to +30 seconds per day. Whilst not much daily, this can accrue into several minutes a week which is then much more noticeable. This is not a fault in the watch.

    Hope this helps you in deciding whether or not to opt for a "real watch" with hundreds of years of heritage behind it...."

    Thanks
