This intriguing timepiece features a glowing gold finish that plays off of the crystal face and gleaming silver inner mechanism. It is truly mesmerizing to watch the ingenious mechanism move. Marked stations serve as number and a matching gold chain is included and can be clipped inside the pocket for security. Very steampunk vintage. A perfect accessory for the groom and groomsmen. Makes a great accessory for historic costumes.
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a non-electric/electronic mechanism to measure the passage of time. They are driven by a spring which must be wound periodically, and releases the energy to activate the balance wheel, which oscillates back and forth thanks to the balance spring at a constant rate, transmitting the impulse through the lever escapement to the gear train, that divide the impulse into hours, minutes and seconds, thus making 'ticking' sound when operating. Mechanical watches evolved in Europe in the 1600s from spring powered clocks, which appeared in the 1400s.
