What is Better? Manual Wind vs Automatic Wind Watches
The discussion about whether manual wind or automatic watches are better is consistently had within the watch community so, I apologize for adding to the noise.
I will say however, that most of the conversations on YouTube and on blogs give the pros and cons about each movement and don’t take a stance on what they prefer. In this video, I will be giving my personal opinion about which type of movement I prefer. Yes, this is my opinion and is not stone cold fact. We all have our preferences and you can have a different opinion than me!
I prefer manual wind watches. For some reason I have found myself attracted to manual wind watches. If I look back on the watches I have owned and watches from my ultimate watch collection, the majority of them are manual wind watches. I think it has to do with the fact that I get to interact with my watch every day by having to wind it in order for it to function. It truly comes down to being able to consume the watch on a daily basis that I like. I do appreciate the convenience of automatic watches, but will definitely take the time to wind my watch if possible.
