The Mechanical Watch A mechanical watch used to be the only watch on the planet. Before the advent of battery-powered quartz watches, every watch was mechanical. Mechanical watches use a movement inside the case to keep accurate time. The better the movement, the better time the watch keeps. A mechanical watch is a marvel of engineering, artistry, miniaturization and design. It's possible that a mechanical movement might have 300 parts or more (the simplest movement has at least 150), making the watch on your wrist quite a bit more complicated than any car you have ever owned. The watchmaker takes all these incredibly detailed and amazingly small parts and assembles them into the movement, breathing life into this little engine that will power the watch, if cared for properly, theoretically forever. Unlike most quartz watches, mechanical watches have to be assembled by hand. They cannot be done by robot or computer, there has to be a watchmaker sitting at his bench putting every movement together. So, in one way, every mechanical watch is unique by virtue of the small tolerances and variances that exist when human beings are involved in production. When you know how much skill, engineering, dedication, planning and artistry goes into this timepiece, a mechanical watch becomes that much more special. The movement on your wrist is a living, breathing thing and knowing that your watch was designed, manufactured and assembled in the rarified air of Switzerland (and in some cases Germany), might just make you appreciate and value your time a little bit more. At the highest end, where watches cost upwards of $200,000, it might take one watch-. maker more than a year to hand assemble, finish, polish and regulate a watch. Realizing and appreciating the kind of work that goes into these watches inspires more than a little bit of awe.
