How long do automatic watches last?

Automatic watches work by using a mechanism that automatically winds the mainspring when you move your wrist. This means that if you only wear your automatic watch occasionally, it may stop running after several days or weeks of non-use. However, if you wear it daily, an automatic watch will typically last for many years and continue to be accurate until its mainspring runs out of power after which they can only be repaired by a professional watchmaker or a manufacturer service centre.

What does it mean when a watch says automatic?

Automatic means that your watch requires no winding or maintenance – it's powered by its own movement through natural arm movements. Automatic watches are not only more convenient than quartz watches, but they're also less expensive on average.

Which brand automatic watch is best?

There are a lot of brands on the market today so choosing the best automatic watch can be difficult. Automatic watches are valued for their simplicity and versatility. They offer intricate functions that can be rarely found in other types of watches like piecewise linear motion or day/date displays, while still keeping a clean and quiet appearance.

Here at Shiels, some of our most popular automatic watch brands include Seiko, Citizen and Fossil.

Is an automatic watch better?

An automatic watch is powered by a mechanical movement, which contains neither batteries nor a quartz crystal (the standard used in most watches). It winds by the natural movement of the wearer's wrist so you never have to change or replace a battery. While some may not notice the difference in timekeeping between an automatic watch and a quartz watch, others claim that the accuracy is better and more precise as it adjusts to body heat and daily wear patterns.
