Automatic watches that we have today are self- winding or manual. Quartz watches come with a self-winding charm of their own. The self- winding as well as the manual watches are considered to be better than battery operated ones. In manual watches there is a rotor which is powered by a spring that can be wound by hand or by the movement of the arm. This gets rid of batteries which run out of fluid within 6 months to a year.
The Benefit of Having Automatic Watches
Since there are no batteries in the watch there is no problem of fluid leakage which can lead to corrosion of the internal parts or rusting. This also reduces the cost of the watch. Watches are more than time pieces. They are a symbol of fashion and they can enhance on outfit or spoil its effect.
A self-winding watch will bring the old world aristocratic feel that accompanied black ties back in circulation. A person who is a collector or enthusiast of vintage items will have such watches in his wardrobe. Self-winding watches are long lasting and you may have them for a lifetime.

The Difference between Automatic and Mechanical watch
An automatic or self-winding watch is a watch that is built with a hairspring that winds it automatically by the wearer’s motion. The motion powers the watch and there is no need for winding. The only hassle is that the owner has to wear the watch daily or the reserve power is exhausted within 36 to 72 hours.
If you are interested in buying a watch for yourself it is better to have an automatic watch which will last a long time.
