Watch Anatomy – Watch Movement

watch movementWithout movement you are standing still. In fact, without movement everything is standing still.  The same goes for watch movement. This is what makes the watch go.  All the parts that are inside the watch case work together in unison to make the hands of the watch turn around so you can tell what time the time is, which also turns the day and date function over and also keeps all the other watch complications working correctly.

Although there can be many parts to the watch movement and many different types of movements, I am going to just focus on the basic types and parts that as a collector you will run into the most often, and I am only going to go into detail about the different types of watch movements that as a watch buyer I will be dealing with most!
