Men’s Automatic Watches

Before buying a watch, you should know about the different styles available in the market. Watches are made by considering various aspects of science and mathematics to get the accuracy in the watch. Men’s watches are available in a huge variety depending upon the cost, color, style, design, etc. Mens automatic watches are designed such that they don’t require a battery to work but since they are automatic, they work on the winding mechanism in which the watch works due to the motion of the human wrist.

Men’s automatic watches are a perfect choice for those who need them on a regular basis. But one should keep in mind that these automatic watches will wind down if not worn for a few days. Since the automatic watches work on the principle of self winding, they are also known as winding watches. When you wear a watch, the movement of your wrist causes the rotor to move freely in the center of the movement. The rotor rotates back to its position even with a slightest action of the wrist. As the rotor rotates, its motion then winds to give power to the watch. Once they are fully wound, you can use them for the next thirty six to fifty hours.

If there is damage in your watch, then it is really difficult to repair it. Mens automatic watches require special kinds of lubricants for its repair which are difficult to find and are also very costly. The Cartier Round Santos Stainless Steel Automatic Unisex W20026K1 Watch can be bought in $2,250 and is one of the best Mens automatic watches you will get in the market. A Rolex 16234 18K Gold men watch will cost you around $3,800 but is also a good option. Some low budget watches are also available in the market for people who don’t want to spend much on these accessories.

The technology of the rotor system was first implemented in 1931 by Rolex. But the main idea behind the technology of self winding was developed by one of the greatest Switzerland watchmakers, Abraham-Louis-Perrelet.

The Mens automatic watches have attracted many people as there is no need of batteries in it and hence no need to change them as they don’t exist. However if you delay in charging the batteries, then it can even lead to its leakage. If you haven’t worn your automatic watch from a long time, then it is advisable to wind it immediately. It will definitely help in its proper functioning.

Choose a watch that best suits your style!


Men do not have a gamut of accessories to choose from as women do. One of the best options available to them is mens wrist watches. If you are worried about making a fashion statement at work or at a party, a good watch can definitely solve your problem. It is very important to keep a track of time, and while doing so if you can even add a style quotient to your look, why not do it then? You can use these mens wrist watches as a tool to make a style statement while at work and also to keep a record of time while maintaining your own sense of style.

But it is not very easy to choose which of these mens wrist watches will best suit your lifestyle. For example there are trendy mens sports watches which are meant to be worn whenever you are involved in an outdoor game. So if you are the outdoor guy who like to sweat it out and has a rather adventurous lifestyle, then you could probably choose a sports watch.

But if you are most of your time in the office and you need to attend meetings while making an impact, then you have a number of mens wrist watches to choose from. You could go for a luxurious high end watch like mens diamond watches.

If you recognize the situations and also the demand of the situation as well, then you can easily choose the best watch which will help you make an impression in whichever look you are. Breitling mens watches are an ideal companion for such situations.

You could go for the traditional leather strap or even choose a metal bracelet. If you want to have a luxurious look, you could even choose a diamond studded strap. These days, gold straps are also making great style statements. They do not only look rich but also indicate the status. There have been many modifications made in the mens wrist watches and with such a wide range of watches available you surely can find one which will best suit your need. Mens gold watches are considered high end even if you just have the gold strap on it.

If you happen to be one of those techno geeks, then the mens digital watches are the ones which would convey your technical bent of mind to the world.

Mens leather watches are the variety meant for the simple yet stunning class look and feel. Without a gleam of shine like Mens Gold watches, the mens leather watches are meant to convey the aristocracy of the owner.

However there have been some new trends in the mens wrist watches upheld by some brands which have made a mark in the accessories related to time keeping like skagen mens watches, timex men’s watches, Cartier mens watches, and croton mens watches etc. (Check out some more affordable dive watches, They are real bargains)

Japanese dive watches – a symbol of craftsmanship

Nowadays, dive watches are among the most popular timepieces being sold in the market. All watch brands, from newcomers to prestigious companies, have at least one dive watch series in their lineups. Dive watches are no longer a dedicated tool for pro – divers, they’re now accessories of those who even never dip a toe in the sea. Dress watches are sometimes too elegant and look fragile, sport watches are usually rugged and not dressy. But dive watches can get the best of both worlds. They’re nice-looking and suitable with everyday wear, and have a solid body at the same time. They’re versatile timepieces that you can dress-up or dress-down depending on particular occasions. However, combining dressiness with sportiness in a single watch is not easy, that’s why dive watches have become a symbol of craftsmanship.

When it comes to dive watches, Swiss brands are dominant is the luxury segment. Needless to say, their reputations have been well-known all over the world for centuries. What about the low-budget segment, who is the boss here? Well, in my opinion, the 3 Japanese watchmakers Citizen, Seiko and Orient. Each has their own advantages.


citizen eco drive

They’re well-known for their Eco-drive dive watches in the North America market. These underwater pieces are not only featured, but also have such a high water resistance rating – up to 300m. Citizen eco-drives are prone to sporty watches, they’re not suitable with formal apparel, but you can still use them for daily wear because they’re fashionable. It’s worth noting that the Eco-drive is a type of solar-powered quartz movement, so if you want a mechanical dive watch, Citizen is not the best choice for you!


seiko dedicated to perfection

Being the No.1 watchmaker of Japan, Seiko offers a wide range of dive watches: from traditional automatic to quartz and solar-powered. In terms of designing, their dive watches are dressier than those of Citizen. Most affordable dive watches of Seiko just have a 200m water resistance depth, but I think it’s more than enough for most divers. Their diving pieces are ISO-certified ( the same to Citizen’s watches), that mean’s these watches meet all international standards for a true diver’s. Despite offering all types of dive watches, Seiko’s most famous pieces are their automatic ones, namely SKX series and the Monsters, they are the best Seiko dive watches in the market up to now.

The smallest of the three, but it doesn’t mean their products are inferior. Orient dive watches are very dressy-looking, much more than Citizen’s and Seiko’s. Although these dive watches not ISO-certified, they’re still reliable underwater, there’re few people who have problems with Orient’s watches in their scuba dive. Orient dive watches are a little cheaper than Seiko’s and Citizen’s but their level of craftsmanship is the same to the 2 giants. It’s worth noting that all Orient’s dive watches are automatic timepieces as this brand is loyal with traditional mechanical watches.


In the budget price range, Japanese dive watches are a good option because they’re well-designed and fully featured, even the cheapest one embodies attention to detail. Japanese diving pieces are really a symbol of craftsmanship in the watch industry.
