ADVANTAGES OF MECHANICAL WATCHES:
Mechanical watch has many advantages. It is precise enough for daily use, it is durable and if maintained correctly, could be handed over for generations as valuable present, or presents a valuable asset.
A good mechanical watch is often more accurate in short periods of time then a quartz watch, for example for the interval of 5 seconds, for measuring exposure many professional photographs discovered to gained more accurate results with mechanical watch.
Mechanical watches are also resistant to weak magnetic fields.
Mechanical watches do no have batteries and do not pollute the environment in any way, they are self-efficient and generate their own power and in such contributing to preservation of nature.
Mechanical watch is an antithesis to today’s throw-away culture and since it preserves the environment and is by itself a beautiful piece, it is now more then ever practical, useful and efficient mechanical device.
