Learn The Working Of Mechanical Watch

It is always amazing and fascinating to watch a mechanical white ceramic watch work. Whether a truly mechanical ceramic watch or an automatic mechanical watch, the intriguing design and operations never fail to show the ingenuity of the manufacturers, and to this they owe the marketing edge of mechanical watches. The way a mechanical watch has been crafted to work by manufacturers is actually a keen display of great workmanship, and this ingenuity has lasted for several centuries. Now, how does a mechanical watch actually work?

First and foremost, it should be noted that a mechanical white watch basically works by wounding the mainsprings that control the intricate gears. Without wounding the mainsprings, the mechanical watch or even the automatic watch would hardly work at all unlike the skeleton watch. The user is actually expected to make the mechanical watches work by manually winding the mainspring until it becomes very taut and tight. It must be noted that a well wound mainspring could make a mechanical watch for up to three days without any lateness, or up to 30-40 hours without trouble, but it is always advisable that it be wound everyday.

The mechanical Michael Kors ceramic watch has an engine that is comprised of wheels, balances, plates, springs and even jewels. In former times, winding the mainspring would automatically make the balance wheel to oscillate to and from endlessly; the balance wheel and the spring formed the main regulator of the other gears. But now with the Chanel ceramic watch, a tuning fork that serves as the resonator does the work of moving the gears in a motion that alternatively moves the hands on the face of the mechanical watch. These are the fascinating movements of gears and other tiny components that gives you the exact timing of the days and nights. 

You must be extra careful that water does not get into your mechanical watch because of the tendency of water to cause metals to rust. Water seeping into your mechanical watches would cause it to break down and stop when the wheels and springs or plates get rusty and useless. You must also not forget to check in your mechanical watch with the watchmaker for oiling once in 2 – 4 years.
