A Salute To American Heroes!

A Powerful Perspective In Time

Automatic watches are renowned for their time-keeping accuracy and hold the distinction of being among today’s most desired timepieces for men and women.  A true automatic or self-winding watch features a built-in mainspring mechanism that winds automatically from the natural motion of a user’s arm and provides sufficient energy to run the timepiece and avoid manual winding. In 1770 Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Perrelet invented the first self-winding automatic timepiece, a pocket watch which was designed to operate when the user walked, using an oscillating weight that moved up and down.
