The Charlie mechanical watch

Mechanical watch or automatic watch

Mechanical watches enjoy great popularity among collectors, attracted by the unparalleled beauty and complexity of their movement. These timepieces operate exclusively using mechanical energy, giving an authentic and artisanal aura to each model. Within this category, a major distinction is established between watches with manual winding and those with automatic winding. Hand-wound mechanical watches require direct involvement from the wearer. To maintain the precise operation of the watch, it is necessary to manually wind the mechanism by turning the crown from low to high. In contrast, automatic mechanical watches offer a more intuitive and practical approach. Worn regularly, they recharge automatically thanks to an ingenious mechanism powered by the natural movement of the wrist. However, these watches typically have a power reserve of around 40 hours when not worn. In these cases, it is possible to wind them manually using the crown to reset their mechanism and get them running again. This duality between manual and automatic winding adds an interactive and personalized dimension to the experience of wearing a mechanical watch, captivating enthusiasts with the symbiosis between watchmaking tradition and innovation.

Why choose a mechanical watch

Mechanical watches, and more specifically Charlie watches, embody much more than a simple instrument for measuring time; they are the expression of a refined watchmaking art and a timeless aesthetic. To wear a mechanical watch is to immerse yourself in a world of complex engineering, where every cog, every spring, and every beat is a symphony of precision and craftsmanship. One of the main benefits of wearing a mechanical watch, like those offered by Charlie, is the appreciation of the mechanics at work. Watch enthusiasts know how to appreciate the beauty of these timepieces which operate using mechanical energy. The movements of these watches, visible through openwork dials or open hearts, become an infinite source of fascination.
