Manual Watches have the first and oldest type of watch movement ever made fitted into any watch. Manual movements, also referred to as Hand-Wound movements, date back to the 16th century. These watches require daily winding of the watch Crown by the wearer for the watch to work. This action winds the MainSpring; this is a coiled strip of metal that is almost a foot in length. The MainSpring is tightly wound around a central shaft, the winding action builds up the tension it stores. As the spring unwinds, it releases energy to power the watch movement.
