Re: Let's Talk Watches

Thanks. I know it's not the Panerai that the purists love, but makes me happy.

No bought it from an AD. I read up enough that there are quite a few fakes out there. Also, I'm never one to impulse buy or settle for something similar. I spent days trying to figure out the one I liked the most and just shrugged off the models that the AD had in stock. I was willing to wait 2 months to get it and luckily their Panerai rep found one from another dealer in a couple of weeks.

With very few exceptions, all high end watches use a movement that does not require a battery. At a very very high level you can do with with an "Automatic" style which uses a weighted wheel to spin around and charge up the mainspring as you move your arm/watch. Or you can use a "Manual wind" to physically spin the crown and charge up the watch for a given amount of time.

From there watches can have different complications. This is just a fancy word for features like a moving second hand, power reserve meter, chronograph, etc. The gauge on my watch is a power reserve so I know how much power is left before I need to wind it again. If I don't, the watch will just stop and I will have to reset the time and charge it up again.

Here is an introduction and there are some cool videos/channels that get into the nitty gritty of how and why brands create their watches.
