A mechanical watch is a watch in which the working mechanism is stored by a mainspring. Rewinding can be done by turning the crown by hand or automatically with a mechanism inside the watch casing. A mechanical watch does not need a battery. Mechanical watches are highly prized because of Old World craftsmanship and skills needed to produce that type of movement.
