In the world of timepieces there is a very obvious dividing line between quartz watches and automatic. Cross the line to automatic and you’ve entered a world of finely made modern masterpieces. From the craftsmanship to the style, here are 5 reasons you need an automatic watch.
1. You’re investing in the heritage and legacy of watchmaking
When you buy an automatic watch, you’re not just buying a watch, you’re investing in the heritage and legacy of watchmaking. Because of their advanced technical attributes, automatic watches are sought after by collectors and desired by watch-lovers.
2. It will hold value over time
When building a watch collection, you must choose pieces that you not only like to look at, but that will hold their value over time. And that is why automatic watches are such wise investments. As soon as you purchase an automatic watch, especially a limited edition one, the value almost always increases. They only get more valuable with age and will be passed down between generations.
3. An automatic lasts forever
Because of the technical functionality, an automatic watch lasts forever. They’re powered by the movement of the wearer and require no battery so the self-running watches will keep ticking for as long as the owner keeps wearing it.
4. They’re synonymous with quality craftsmanship
All the details of an automatic watch are more expensive and complex than their quartz counterparts which makes them synonymous with quality and craftsmanship. An elaborate chain of gears, springs, and rotating weights keep automatic watches going, and the Venice Automatic uses up to 200 different components. Because of this complicated functionality, automatic watches utilize expert watchmakers with specific expertise.
5. They never go out of style
While batteries might have replaced some automatic watches, an automatic watch will still give outfits an elevated sense of style that other watches never could. These timeless pieces have stuck around through changes in fashion trends and advances in technology because ultimately, automatic watches transcend any fads. They’re the ultimate marker of style and always will be.
