The different automatic watch movements

When buying a new watch, what usually attracts the most attention is how it looks on the wrist and how it feels. We often forget the movement, that is to say the mechanics which activates the hands of the watch to tell you the time. Aside from ETA and Rota, the Miyota movement is a favorite among watch enthusiasts due to its precision and accuracy.

What is an automatic watch movement?

An automatic watch is a mechanical watch for which manual winding is unnecessary. The automatic movement is powered by natural energy created by the wearer's movements.

At Beaubleu, our goal is to ensure that our brand is synonymous with quality, and that is why we have chosen to equip our collection with the Miyota movement.

How does an automatic watch movement work?

An automatic watch winds itself using the kinetic energy of the person wearing it.

In more detail, here is how this type of movement works:

- A metal rotor is added to the manual parts of the watch;
- the rotor is connected to the movement and is free to rotate;
- with each movement of the wearer's wrist, the resulting energy is transferred to the mainspring;
- the mainspring is then reassembled.

Why choose a watch equipped with a Miyota movement?

Miyota takes everything good about the basic quartz watch movement and makes it even better. Here are some advantages that Miyota watch movements offer you:

High precision manufacturing

Beaubleu automatic watches are built with original parts manufactured by Miyota itself, which allows the company to carry out high quality control.

Miyota movement: long life

In addition to their high quality, these watches have a long lifespan. A longer battery means less maintenance for your watch.
