    Which mechnical automatic movement watch has highest hr of reserve?

    Which mechnical automatic movement watch has highest hr of reserve power?

    Like Rolex and Omega,the most last 3 days... After that it stop. I admit I am kind of lazy coming to adjusting the timing when using it. Plus I don like to wear the same watch everyday.. Maybe 4-5 days,I will switch to another watch to wear. I know digital watch is good and hussle free but I like automactic watch too.. Any feed back will be welcome!

    I thought that was a hand wind movement?

    It is hand wound.

    Most of them handwounded, but nevertheless:
    Eberhart 8 Jours, Panerai 8 days, Daniel Roth Tourbillon 8D, Ferrari GMT 8D (by Panerai), Blancpain, Cartier Tortue 8-Day Power Reserve, Hermes 8 Day Cape Cod, Jaeger-leCoultre Master Eight Days Perpetual (a wonderful watch for less than 25.000 bucks), De Bethune 8 Days, IWC - Portugieser Perpetual Calendar (reference 5021, EPOS 8 Days. There are pretty much more (Parmigiani for example) but this should do it for the first attempt.......

    For your desk: Sinn NaBo56/8

    Less expensive: Citizen Eco Drive (BM1271-59A and others) 180 Days PR

    Re: Which mechnical automatic movement watch has highest hr of reserve?

    Hi -

    Wrong question.

    Right answer: you can get watch winders for one, two or more automatic watches. The less expensive ones usually offer very simple movements, while more expensive ones can be programmed to better mimic the movements of a human wrist, including quiet times. Some are incorporated into watch boxes as well.

    That's the solution. Any sort of multiple-day watch reserve is going to be hand-wound, rather than automatic (the reason being that you get an 8-day watch not to avoid winding it for 8 days, but rather to ensure that your watch will have a very, very long sweet spot for main barrel power), as the automatic always has power given to it by the movement of your wrist.

    As far as I know, the longest automatic reserve movements around currently in production are all based on the Valgrange series of movements from ETA, with power reserves of around 50 hours.

    But get a watch winder instead: that will take care of the problem.

    I know Blancpain used to have a 100 hour Automatic...The IWC Big Pilot is a 7 day automatic, putting it at 168 hours. Those are the ones that come to mind.

    Not sure if Blancpain still has one...IWC definitely makes the Big Pilot.

    Also, the odd Jacob 31 day reserve comes with a box that you push a button on and it somehow engages a winding system. Don't really know how it works as I have never seen one.
