An automatic watch is a type of mechanical watch with an automatic rewind. The wearer’s arm movements cause the rotating part that rewinds the mainspring of the watch to move. An automatic watch is also known as a self-winding watch, which needs no battery. Automatic watches are highly prized due to Old World craftsmanship and skills needed to produce that type of movement.
