Looking for the perfect gift for your loved one? Or even yourself? With timeless style and exceptional practicality, a Fossil watch is the ultimate fit with our ever-changing lives. Checking your phone for the time is a thing of the past as the classic flair and sophisticated design of a wristwatch .
Fossil watches Australia come in a style to suit every taste, including the mechanism of timekeeping. The mechanics of a watch are known as the movement or calibre. There are two types of movement, quartz and automatic. A quartz movement is powered by a battery and uses an oscillator regulated by a piece of quartz. This type of movement is an extremely accurate yet affordable choice. The automatic movement uses the movement of your wrist to wind the mainspring. That means you power the watch yourself! The most visible difference between these two mechanisms is that the second hand on a quartz movement watch ticks, while the second hand on an automatic watch sweeps smoothly around the face.
The choice is up to you, although wristwatch aficionados tend to prefer an automatic movement. One thing to note, though, is that because you power the watch yourself, if you take it off, it will eventually stop. How quickly this happens depends on the model, but it may be anywhere from 38 hours to five days before they need to be manually wound.
