When you're going to get your hands dirty, you need someone to have your back. And that's even more true if you're out in the wild, perhaps in the mountains, engaged in a challenging path through ridges, forests, and streams.
Please meet the Davosa Swiss Trialmaster automatic watch!
The world of watches has changed a lot over the years: today, when you look at the wrists of watch wearers, you notice that a great many are wearing one type or another of diver watch, perhaps wearing a suit and tie to a business meeting. Yet, there was a time, and it was not that many years ago when diver watches were reserved for underwater activities!
So we want to explore the depths of diver watches and discover their history, their origins.
Are you ready to dive into this sea?
Automatic watches have been a fantastic discovery, especially when you consider when they were invented - the end of the 1700s. But so many people still wonder how reliable they are and how much the relentless work of the winding mechanism affects their performance and longevity.

Many times we come across this somewhat cryptic definition. What is an automatic watch, really? The most straightforward answer is "a watch that winds itself" - but that's only a tiny part of the whole world tucked inside the case of a self-winding watch.
So if you want to metaphorically open the back of your watch to understand how it works, that's exactly what we're here for!

Automatic watches have been, and continue to be, among the most popular models of mechanical watches, precisely because of their main feature: they work without having to be wound, like hand-wound watches, and without needing a battery, like quartz watches. They only need a few small steps to keep them in perfect working order in exchange for this flexibility.
If you're looking to solve all your doubts about an automatic watch winding and operation, you have come to the right place.

Watches is a topic that strangely divides people: with the introduction of the modern smartwatches, the world has separated in two halves, traditional watch-wearers, and prophets of doom, who are preaching that the end of horology – a field that has withstood 500 years of evolution – is near.
We might be a bit partial in our position, but we feel that our analysis is backed by substantial figures that depict a different portrait of the business.

Of the over 1,000 people that passed through the station, only 27 cared about giving him any money, and only 7 actually stopping to listen to his playing, which was not just good.

Want to learn from this short story, and how do they apply to horology?
Poets say the best and worst thing about being in love is that it can’t be put into words. This is why gift-giving is one of the best ways of showing not only your love but also your generosity and personality.
Whether you’re a connoisseur of horology or just a regular watch lover, we all want something great to wear on our wrists. Something that makes you feel great and shows people that you’re great. A watch that tells the time accurately, lasts long and catches the eye just peeping out from under the sleeve of your suit jacket.
Here’s how you can tell whether any watch is worth its salt.
For starters, watches are complex (and complicated) little devices. One needs to have lots of technical know-how in order to be in a position to choose the right one. It doesn’t help that there are a myriad of brands and options out there, each of them seemingly as attractive as the last.
We may be in an age full of innovations but automatic watches are still the in-thing for many people. They were the in-thing before the 1970s when quartz took over, and in recent times they’ve returned as snazzy fashion pieces.
Manual or battery-operated watches are good too, but there are advantages that only an automatic timepiece can offer. We’re gonna run down the major ones here.
