MECHANICAL WATCH FAQ

What size are most men's mechanical watches?

The watch size for men are usually between 38mm and 46mm in size. Anything larger than 46mm quickly comes across as overly large. And anything smaller than 38mm is usually for women. By measuring your wrist and using the following size chart, you know exactly which size watch case is suitable for your wrist. Here is Instruction Manual.

Should a man wear a wrist watch on the left or right wrist?

Let's keep it nice and simple: A man should wear their watch on their non-dominant hand. That means if you're right handed, you should wear your watch on your left wrist. Conversely, left-handed guys should wear their watches on their right wrists. Of course, you can also choose how you feel comfortable wearing it

What powers my mechanical wrist watch?

There are two types of mechanical wrist watches: manual-winding watches and self-winding watches. All of our watches are self-winding watches, also known as automatic mechanical wrist watches. It doesn't require a battery and is powered by an oscillating weight on the back of its movement. When you wear it, the oscillating weight will oscillate due to your movement, thereby automatically winding.

What size wrist watch is suitable for small wrist?

While there is not a set rule for men's or women's watches, it is best to match the case diameter with your wrist size. If you have a large wrist, case diameters ranging between 38mm to 46mm will look best. If you have a thin wrist, look for watches with case diameters between 34mm to 22mm.Here is sizing guide

How long can my automatic wrist watch run if I don't wear it?

The power reserve of the automatic wrist watch can be upto 35 hours, if the wrist watch is fully wound.
