Automatic Watch

An automatic watch is also commonly known as the self-winding watch. It continues to operate due to the regular motion of the wearer’s wrist. If worn on a daily basis, this watch doesn’t need any winding or battery replacement as the energy is stored by using half-disc metal weight, called a roto, that spins when the arm is moved. This energy continues to power the watch for at least 24 to 48 hours when the watch is not being worn. As a result it is considered as more skilled and energy saving than the Analog and digital watches.
