While I am waiting for my biochem exam grade to come through so i could allow myself to buy hamilton auto chrono, something came to my mind.
Why are swiss manufacturers so fixated on automatic watches? what is the point of an automatic watch?
Isn't one of the reasons of owning a mechanical watch the fact that you are constantly involved with your watch?
You wake up every morning, pick up your watch, wind it, put it on, repeat next morning.
When I had auto i did the same exact thing, I missed the chirping of the crown, on Autos the wind is silent, and you can never tell if its wound enough or not, though i did feel slight resistance when it was wound.
I just see it unnecessary, it makes a watch fat, makes you less involved with your watch, you never know how much wind it has, unless indicator
