All The Major Different Types of Watch Movements

Matt Farah published on

In this episode, Cameron and Matt cover all the major different type of wristwatch movements, with examples of each and descriptions of how they work. We begin with the basic wind-up, mechanical movement, as demonstrated with Cameron's own Weiss Cal. 1003 manual movement. We then discuss the automatic movement, manual and automatic chronograph movements, quartz movements, complications and how you add complications to standardized movements. We finish it off with Seiko's revolutionary Spring Drive hybrid movements, and a tangent back to the 70's with the oddball Accutron watches.
