Mechanical watches can usually be divided into the following two kinds:
manual winding and automatic winding watches. The power source of these two machines are powered by the spring inside the movement, which drives the gear and then pushes the watch hand, but the source of power is different. Manual on the chain of mechanical watch is to rely on the manual winding of the spring as the power, the thickness of the movement is thinner than the general automatic winding of the table, relatively speaking, the weight of the watch is light. And the automatic chain watch, is the use of the movement of the automatic rotating disk swing around the power to drive the spring, but relatively the thickness of the manual chain watch is smaller than the automatic chain.
Characteristics of mechanical watches
Mechanical watches do not need to replace the battery, through regular maintenance and oil washing, can be used for a long time.Mechanical watches are larger than quartz watches, due to the quality of the production of high and low and the movement of the table is susceptible to the influence of gravity and error. Usually the mechanical table is calculated by the number of days of error seconds, while the quartz table is calculated by the number of months of error seconds.Mechanical watches as precision mechanical timing instruments and decorative supplies, must be practical and decorative at the same time. The table of good quality travel time is accurate, easy to use, fine process, beautiful appearance, the spring can be continuous travel time of more than 36 hours, it also has waterproof, shockproof, magnetic resistance.
Maintenance of mechanical watches
1 special remind you that any watch is not in warm water or the bathroom to wear, even if your watch is waterproof, because the watch seal rubber, heat easy aging, and all around the steam molecules are relatively small, it is easy to penetrate the case, causing damage to the internal machinery.
2 watch if the occurrence of abnormal, should be immediately sent to the special watch shop check.
3 mechanical fully automatic table must be in the case of enough activity, that is, must wear more than 10 hours a day, before the normal operation.
4 different occasions should wear different watches, such as the best choice of waterproof and good shock resistance sports watch.
5. If the table cover is marked with the WATER RESISTANT or 3ATM watch, it is generally only applicable to the splash or light rain under no pressure.
6 due to the structure of the internal machinery of each watch are different, in the normal use of the state, mechanical table or mechanical automatic table error is 30 seconds per day (this standard is promulgated by the national ministries and commissions), and the quartz watch error is low and more accurate.
7 put the best place to place the watch desiccant, but avoid the use of mothballs, insect repellent and other chemicals.
8 leather watch should try to avoid contact with water, so as not to stiffen the watchband, smelly, and lead to the result of fracture.
Mechanical table after the water treatment method
Method one, the mechanical surface inward, bottom shell outward, reverse wear on the wrist, two hours after the water vapor can be eliminated. If the water is serious, it is best to immediately send the table shop to wipe oil, remove the moisture of the movement, in order to avoid parts rust.
Method two, mechanical table such as water soaked, available several layers of toilet paper or easy to absorb moisture flannelette table tightly wrapped, on the 40 watt light bulb near about 15 cm, baking for about 30 minutes, the water vapor in the table can be eliminated. Do not watch the table close to the fire directly baking, so as not to make the table suffer thermal deformation.
Method three, with granular silica gel and have water watch together into a closed container, a few hours later, take out the watch, water is all disappeared. This method is simple and economical, without any damage to the precision and life of the table. After many times of water absorption, the silica gel can be dried for several hours at 120℃, its water absorption capacity is renewable, and it can be used repeatedly.
