Summary of Features
• Movement: Manual/Self-Winding Automatic Movement
Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.
Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).

Top Customer Reviews
Other than the time keeping, this watch is beautiful. Everything appears to be of very high quality. The rubber band is incredibly soft, but also attracts a lot of dust. Whenever I'd put my hand in my pocket, the watch band would come out all fuzzy. That was an easy fix. I ended up getting a leather band with blue stitch which looks much better and allows it to go with more outfits.
I will test the time keeping again wearing it only and not putting it on a winder. I've synchronized it to the second with the local atomic time. I'm very curious how many seconds a day it's fast.
In conclusion, for the price, this watch is a whole lot of bang for the buck. This watch is obviously made more for looks than time keeping.
49 seconds fast in a 24 hour period. +/-30 seconds is the maximum deviation that's acceptable in a standard Swiss movement at any given time of the year. I suppose, for the price, this isn't all that bad. One thing to note is that it does run faster when it's not worn. At the 12 hour mark, it was only 14 seconds fast. It's supposed to become more accurate over time. We'll see how it is in a few months.
