Mechanical winding watches are always the best watches not only in movement but also in looks.
Mechanical winding basically requires manual winding to operate. They are actually better than battery watches as unlike quatz movement (or battery movement), a mechanical movement uses energy from the wound mainspring to power a watch, rather than a battery.
The movement of the watch or its passage of time is measured by spring driven mechanism. The spring needs to be wound periodically.
This spring transfers energy through a number of springs and gears, powering the function of the watch hands and the complications- This is how Mechanical watches works.
Apart from this mechanical watches are also famous for the looks as mostly mechanical watches comes with sapphire crystal casing on the back from which you can admire the intrinsic delicacy of this masterpiece of the watch and enjoy the fascinating rotations and oscillations of the minute working parts.
