MECHANICAL WATCH FAQ

What size skeleton automatic 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 skeleton automatic watch with case diameters between 34mm to 22mm.

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

Let's keep it nice and simple: A man should wear their mechanical skeleton 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 automatic skeleton watches on their right wrists. Of course, you can also choose how you feel comfortable wearing it

What powers my mechanical skeleton watch?

There are two types of mechanical skeleton watches: manual-winding watches and self-winding watches. All of our mechanical skeleton watches are self-winding watches, also known as automatic mechanical skeleton 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.

Would a 42mm diameter watch be too big?

Wishdoit Watches exclusively designs skeleton automatic watch for men. We make watches according to the wrist size of most men in the United States, if you don't know how to choose, you can follow us on instagram @wishdoitwatches, check our customer reviews and model pictures, or email our customer service support@wishdoitwatches.com, we can give you better 's suggestion.

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

The power reserve of the skeleton automatic watch can be up to 35 hours, if the watch is fully wound.

High Quality and Affordable!

I have purchased two Wishdoit watches so far, one for myself and one for my brother. Both are high quality, feel really solid, and are mechanically sound. It has a travel time of over 70 hours, which is fantastic. The materials all come off as high quality and durable. Highly recommended.

Beautiful watch

Beautiful watch - probably the nicest looking watch I own. So much so that I've ordered a 'watch box' to display my watch when I'm not wearing it. I hope to order another Wishdoit in the near future to compliment the other. I will say the band is soft. Great.

Not good as the Captain Kidd watch

I don't think this watch looks as good as the Captain Kidd watch, I'm going to buy another silver watch with a blue strap. Thank you

Love it!!!! It really is an awesome watch.

It remind me of a Richard Mille but about 1,000th the price. It’s extremely comfortable and lite weight. I have 15 watches and this is my second favorite. Can’t wait to buy another!

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us, Eric ! We're glad to hear that you like your compass watch!
