Case size info:  Watch Movements: The movement of a watch refers to the mechanics that power the ticking of the timepiece, and there are two main choices when it comes to analog watches (watches with hour hands and are not digital), quartz or automatic.
What you choose really comes down to what you're looking for in a watch. There are many ways to look at what's attractive about both types of watches, but one way to look at it is the quartz watch as more practical and the automatic watch as more emotional.Quartz
The majority of watches made today utilize the vibrations of a tiny quartz crystal to maintain timing, with the power coming from a battery that needs to be replaced every 2 to 3 years. Watches with quartz movements are more accurate, losing about a minute of accuracy over a year, and they can have either analog or digital displays, or both.Automatic
Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.
Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors). You should refer to your owner's manual for recommended service intervals.What is the difference between a Mechanical Movement and an Automatic movement?
A mechanical movement is a movement based on a mainspring which when wound slowly unwinds the spring in an even motion to provide accurate timekeeping. As opposed to a manual mechanical watch which needs to be wound on a consistent basis, an automatic mechanical requires no winding because of the rotor, which winds the mainspring every time you move your wrist.Automatic Watch Maintenance
Although automatic (also called "mechanical") watches do not have batteries, some easy-to-follow maintenance is necessary for continued and long-lasting good use.
Self-winding automatic watches depend on the movement of the arm to operate and do require some winding, even if you wear your watch on a daily basis.
If you wear your automatic watch every day, it is best to wind it once every two weeks to keep the wheels in motion and oil fluid. Simply wind the crown (the same knob used to adjust the time and date) until you meet slight resistance If you do not wear your automatic watch every day, you should try to wind it at least twice a week to ensure continuous operation, as well as keeping the inside mechanism in complete running order.
If you have a mechanical watch, it is best to wind it at the same time every day. This is extremely beneficial for the mechanism. You may want to make it a routine, winding it every morning when you wake up. If your watch has a day/date function, avoid setting the day and/or date at night. The day-date mechanism is activated during the nighttime hours and could be disrupted if set at this time.
Watch Functions:Chronograph
A chronograph watch has separate hands or sub-dials for measuring increments of time. Most have two or three sub-dials or mini dials for measuring minutes and hours. When used in conjunction with specialized scales on the watch dial, it can perform many different functions, such as determining speed or distance. Some chronographs can time more than one event simultaneously.Dual Time
A dual time allows the user to keep track of the time in two times zones at once. The display can have two dials, a sub-dial placed in the main dial, or analog and digital displays on the same dial.GMT
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), also known as Zulu Time, is set to the international clock in Greenwich, England. Through an additional hour hand, it reflects the world time on a 24-hour scale and is used by pilots across the globe.World Time Dial
A world time dial, usually found on the outer edge of the watch face, tells the time in up to 24 time zones around the world. The time zones are represented by the names of cities printed on the bezel or dial. The hour hand points to a city along a set scale enabling the wearer to determine the time zone.. Watches with this feature are called "world timers."Moon Phase
The moon phase is an indicator that keeps track of the phases of the moon. A regular rotation of the moon is once around the earth every 29 days, 12 hours, and 44 minutes. Once set, the moon phase indicator accurately displays the phase of the moon.Moon Dial
A watch with a moon dial displays a dial with a sun and moon, which tracks the twenty four hour day.Perpetual Calendar
The perpetual calendar automatically resets the day at the end of the month or year, accounting for leap years, to keep a timepiece's calendar accurate.Power Reserve
A power reserve measures the amount of time a watch will run after being fully powered or wound, with no additional power input. Normally, a mechanical watch that is fully wound or a Quartz watch with a new battery has a full power reserve. Many modern mechanical watches have a power reserve of 40 hours. Power reserve also applies to battery-less Quartz watches, which may have power reserves from 40 hours to 6 months. On battery-operated Quartz watches, the term power reserve is sometimes used to refer to the expected battery life--typically 12 to 32 months.Power Reserve Indicator
A power reserve indicator is a feature that shows when the watch will need a new battery or winding. A battery reserve indicator on a Quartz watch informs the wearer when the battery is low. Often this is indicated by the second's hand moving at two- or three-second intervals.Tachymeter
A tachymeter is a scale used to measure the speed traveled over a specific distance. The scale used for making this calculation is often found on the bezel or the dial rim of a timepiece. Ionic Plating
A physical vapor deposition (PVD) process that is often applied to stainless steel watch cases and bracelets, allowing a break from the traditional silver-tone stainless steel color, by coating a darker, dark-grey to black compound to the surface of the steel. This process is used to deposit hard coatings of compound materials in wrist watches.Screw Down Crown
Commonly found on diver watches, a screw-down crown aids water-resistance by sealing the crown to the case of the watch. A seal is achieved when the case locks with the crown's internal threads and gaskets fastening the crown into its place. In order to adjust the date and/or time on a watch with a screw-down crown, you must first unscrew the crown before you can gently pull it out to its first or second click stop position. To do this, simply rotate the crown counterclockwise until it springs open. When you have finished setting the watch, the crown must then be pushed in and screwed back in tightly. Not doing so will cancel the water-resistance of the watch. Overall, this process should not require a lot of effort or force.Retrograde:
Retrograde is used to describe a pointer-hand on a watch dial (often called a sub dial), which returns to zero at the end of a set period. For example, a watch may have retrograde date where the hand moves up a scale, pointing to the current date - when it reaches 31 it will spring back to 1.
