Stylish Men's Mechanical Watches
There are only very few durable automatic movements available today. Built, assembled, and produced exclusively in Switzerland, the watch brand Wryst has chosen the Sellita SW200 series for this premium collection.
This durable high-end caliber with 28,800 BPH (4Hz) and 26 Jewels can be either self-winded by the motion of your arm or manually winded. The spring can be manual wound for up to 38 hours of power reserve with a full charge. The evolution and changes from SW200 to SW200-1 consist of gear improvement. The new gear design provides power transmission equal to the SW200, but the tooth geometry has been reinforced to reduce the risk of damage from strong shocks. The Swiss movement maker found that each tooth has "slim geometry" and is known to get vulnerable to solid shocks.
When Watchmaking Becomes Feisty
The Wryst mechanical watches for men correspond to your motorsport-inspired spirit. As a result, the center's large circular hands pay tribute to the connection between pinions used inside the caliber mechanism and racing car engines. The dial features three openings that remind of a V6 engine on each side. Most importantly, the raised prominent central part is innovative. Finally, the polished yellow gold plated indexes and the manly casing will provide the wearer with a pleasing luxurious feel at a lower price point and affordable pricing.

Mechanical watches for men and how they run
Mechanical or automatic watches are all about wheels, gears, springs, jewel bearings, and oils working together with only the physical laws of mechanics to govern the interactions between all the components. This rare complexity mastered by the human brain and hands creates all the appeal, mystery, and prestige of mechanically engineered watches.
A Fascinating Piece of Engineering
All automatic watches continue to fascinate for many reasons, starting with the tiny size of their elements. Indeed, the measuring scale here is a micron or one-thousandth of a millimeter (0.001 mm). To understand a little better what that means, consider that one of your hairs measures between 0.06 to 0.07 millimeters.
Until the nineteenth century and the improvement of machining tools, building a watch was a craft in which only specialists could design the movement, manufacture the components, assemble them, and make it all work. Such individuals still live among us today, even if they are scarce. Each of their tasks has become an appropriate field with an outstanding level of specialization. The complexity of movements has also increased significantly, making it sometimes impossible to apply the traditional ways of conceiving and creating watches using pencils, paper, and blueprints.
A Close Look at the Automatic Movements
Calibers are created by movement designers and engineers using computers similar to those found in automotive engineering. Micromechanics is in charge of programming the computer numerical control (CNC) machining tools, which carry out the actual production of parts. Then watchmakers finish, assemble, test, and adjust the movements before fitting them into cases, adding the dial and hands, and closing them up.
Many tests are necessary to check the quality at different stages because of the difficult manufacturing process and level of details required. Dedicated craftspeople can also execute the various tasks separately. For instance, the assembly of a movement can fall into subgroups of parts with specialists in charge of assembling them. The experienced watchmaker focuses only on the most sensitive operations.
Art and decorative craftsmanship also find their way into movements. Mirror polishing, beveling, engraving, and even gem-setting are the usual techniques applied in fine watchmaking to embellish the mechanics by creating visual contrasts between the various parts and their surfaces.
Evolution and Improvements
Even if it is true that the principles of their design haven't significantly changed since the nineteenth century, watchmakers and engineers always work on improving the reliability and precision of movements. They have perpetually integrated innovations at every level in this quest, whether with materials or engineering processes. Nowadays, experimental techniques have emerged that, for instance, allow moving parts to be maintained in an almost floating manner thanks to micro magnets creating a small magnetic field.
This helps reduce friction between classic metal parts. Some parts are built-in carbon fiber or ceramics-for instance, with ball bearings. Other components are coated with a layer of artificially grown diamond for protection. Silicon has made more and more inroads in fabricating crucially sensitive and thin elements like the hairspring, the pallet lever, and the escape wheel. Very rarely, these new materials allow for new mechanical watches for men.
Structure of a mechanical movement
A mechanical movement can be imagined like a sandwich with a lower part and an upper part dedicated to securing all the moving parts (like wheels) between them.
The base plate is the stable base of the movement. It usually looks like a flat coin with plenty of cavities and holes in it to allow space for moving components and screws.
The moving parts are mainly located in the heart of the movement. At times, some can be placed outside the base plate to highlight them.
Bridges are sandwiched on top of the moving parts. They can also have holes for screws to go through that secure them to the base plate. The shapes of bridges and their configurations are like pictures on ID cards. Each says a lot about the movement, and connoisseurs are able to recognize certain movements and watches by only having a look at their design and specific elements. You may be able to do that one day!
A mechanical movement is basically a system composed of interconnected cogwheels. The forms of their teeth as well as their diameters and sizes generally differ based on the roles they play. To fit into a case, this set of components assembled much like a puzzle is conceived to occupy a minimum amount of spatial volume. That is why a caliber can look so complex and confusing. Without this constraint, a mechanical movement could be constructed in a line, for instance, with each element put end to end next to each other. At one end, you would find the drum barrel (alias the energy store); in the middle a series of a minimum of three cogwheels forming the gear train (for energy transmission); and at the other end the escapement and balance for portioning the energy into segments.
As a child, did you ever play with toy cars that had to be wound using a key to run around the floor until their energy was used up or have you at least seen these in a television ad? Basically, a mechanical watch works the same way, except that the energy lasts much longer because of the regulator subassembly that portions it. (A toy car does not have this regulator, which is why the energy runs out so quickly).
In a mechanical watch, energy is stored in the mainspring, which is located inside the spring barrel, asmall round container that revolves around an axis called the barrel arbor; it drives the gear train. Made out of a special metal alloy, the mainspring is created with a very specific manufacturing process. Its mission is to unwind, releasing tension and thus energy as regularly as possible no matter the conditions and the level of tension. At one end, the spring is fixed to the center of the barrel arbor. The barrel arbor is the part that rolls the spring up around itself, thereby creating the tension. It is activated by the barrel's ratchet wheel, which is a cogwheel placed outside the barrel and directly linked with the manual or automatic winding system.
At the other end, the mainspring is fixed on the side of the barrel drum that powers the gear train thanks to an external toothing. The mainspring can end with a slip spring that glides along the barrel to avoid it breaking from excess winding. That system is often found in older watches; in newer timepieces the mainspring is usually secured to the barrel.
In a mechanical movement, the available power reserve (the number of hours the watch is supplied with energy) depends on various factors. The length of the mainspring has a significant impact. And in certain watches, the mainspring can measure more than one meter! Watchmakers can also add several spring barrels, a feat that can be compared to putting several gas tanks in a car. Recent high-end mechanisms can house up to eleven barrels for a total power reserve of fifty days - more than a month and a half! In comparison, a regular automatic watch caliber usually has a power reserve of about 42 hours. The winding system has a direct influence on the conception of the caliber.
Remember that a longer power reserve on a manual winding watch is a positive thing: If the owner must wind a watch less frequently, it saves the mechanism from excessive wear and tear. The benchmark set for some years now is eight days of power reserve. Why such a length? First, it makes sense because some aficionados own more than one watch and generally change them on the weekend. As they don't want to have to set a watch each time they pick it up, they like to have a power reserve that lasts for at least one week.
Last but not least: Keep in mind that the duration of the power reserve provided by the brand usually corre sponds to the period of time during in which the torque is strong enough to ensure the precision of the watch, but that it will most likely run longer.
The manual winding system was the first one invented, and it is the simplest version: Energy enters the movement from an external source. In old watches, owners needed a key or another tool to wind the move ment. That is still the case with many wall clocks, for instance. In 1820, an English watchmaker named John Arnold invented a little external element that allows the wearer to wind the barrel: the crown. The gold standard today, the crown is general ly positioned on the same side of the watch as the key spring barrel ele ments. Note that you can wind every mechanical movement-even auto matic examples-using the crown.
Automatic movements are as clever as they are practical. It's true, turning your crown regularly to wind the mainspring can be boring and take up your time-and it goes without saying that if you forget to do it, your watch will stop working without you noticing it. Comfort and a need for a certain security regarding energy reserves inside the caliber motivated watchmakers to invent self-winding systems. The first watches including a self-winding system were invented at the end of the eighteenth century. But today, mechanical watches for men out number manually wound ones and with good reason.
From the beginning the idea was to use the motion of the owner's body, and in particular his or her wrist, to generate energy. To do so, watchmakers added a mobile element to the back of the movement that oscillates back and forth. This part, called the rotor or the oscillating mass, has the approximate shape of half a disk and revolves around an axis. The rotor is directly connected to the spring barrel via a gear. Some systems wind only in one direction of oscillation, others in both; this is a choice that the movement designer makes. The result is the same, except that it takes a little bit more time to fully wind a movement. with a unidirectional system. On certain movements the rotor makes some noise when it moves, which can be considered a kind of signature element. And if you pay close atten tion, you can usually also physically feel the motion of the rotor when you wear the watch.
Note that most of the time the axis for the rotor is situated in the center of the movement-but not always. Some models, and only some, are equipped with micro rotors. Micro rotors are smaller examples that make their revolutions not above the movement, but within it. These are chiefly created to reduce the height of a movement and are much more challenging to manufacture and adjust.
Escapement and oscillator
The goal of the mechanism usually summed up as "the escapement" is to regulate the flow of energy coming from the barrel through the gear train and to split it into regular impulses to count time. You can see this action played out on the dial. Indeed, if you have a long second hand on your watch, just note that each almost imperceptible step it takes forward is the result of one impulse. The regulating system is a set of parts very accurately made and adjusted; its precision is passed on to the act of time measurement.
Strictly speaking, the regulator is divided into two major subassemblies: the oscillator and the escapement. The oscillator acts in combination with a large, light wheel called the balance wheel and an ultrafine hair spring that is rolled into coils and located in the middle. These two components are the most delicate and sensitive in any mechanical watch. Their manufacture is the biggest secret brands hold on to, and professionals able to work on them are rare, gifted, and very much in demand in the industry. One end of the hairspring is secured to the balance staff, while its other extremity is secured to an external and immov able attachment point. Its role is then to oscillate, meaning turning in one direction before coming back in the other in order to create impulses.
The escapement subassembly comprises the escape wheel, pallet lever, and pallets. It portions the energy and sends it to the oscillator. Working together, the oscillator and the escapement transform the linear flux of energy into pulsations that give rhythm to the entire movement. The speed of these oscillations provides the frequency of the caliber. And the higher it is, the more precise it becomes.
Jewels and shock absorber
The various wheels and components of a mechanical movement must turn as easily as they can; any friction represents a loss of energy and precision. For this reason, watch makers use synthetic rubies called jewel bearings to maintain the ends of the axes with as little friction as possible. These jewels are minuscule carved disks with or without a tiny hole in the middle. Historically, they were made out of natural ruby; now they are the purer synthetic ruby. Thanks to their man-made manufacture, colors can also vary from the original red. Usually, the number of jewels a movement con tains is engraved on the movement.
The rubies maintaining the most sensitive axes-like the balance wheel, for instance-are usually doubled with a shock absorption system. This component mainly has the shape of a circular micro blade spring positioned within a fixed part where the jewel is located.
