With technology developing, apple watch, quartz watches (battery operated watch) keeping time more accurately, we wonder why somebody would wear an automatic/ mechanical watch which requires winding to set your time and date every day.
By setting the time/date first thing in the morning it reminds you how precious time is. Personally, ever since using a mechanical/automatic watch I have always valued mine and others time. Every day you get reminded how short the day is and by setting the date you start knowing the date automatically without checking your phone when others ask what the date is.
Sometimes there is nothing more satisfying than hearing the gears run and watching the watch operate. It's fascinating how you can generate energy in a small thing you wear on your wrist.
