Question: What about the terms “self-winding” and “automatic” when it applies to a watch?

Answer: Let’s start with the basics. A “mechanical” watch is one that derives its power from a tightly coiled main spring which is housed in a drum or barrel within the watch. As the spring unwinds, it provides the power for the gear train escapement, balance wheel, and other components that make the watch work. The original mechanical watches had to be hand wound every day. The “automatic” watch is a special type of mechanical watch which is wound by the movement of the wearer’s wrist. That motion causes a rotary pendulum or rotor inside the watch to rotate or oscillate and wind the mainspring. The term “self-winding” is a misnomer. The watch cannot wind itself. It must be worn by the user or hand wound in order to operate.

Classic watch winder case designs are timeless. The sloped front case design affords perfect visibility. The top is fitted with beveled glass viewing panel and superb quadrant hinges. All interior surfaces are lined in rich suede, including the pull out drawer with storage for 12 watches: http://ow.ly/4n2fnU
