The watch types
Wristwatches accompany us in different situations and support us in our everyday life with their functional diversity far beyond the normal time measurement. We seldom make do with a watch that simply displays the time of day. For this there is the wall clock in the kitchen. More should "happen" on the wrist. At least it should please - and at best catch admiring glances. Before buying a new watch, it is therefore advisable to think about the following question:

Timeshop24 will be happy to assist you in your search. In the following we have compiled an overview of the watch types available in our Watches-Shop for you:
Automatic watches gain energy from the arm movements of the wearers. A rotor in the movement absorbs the kinetic energy and transfers it to the mechanism of the spring movement. This provides the energy required to operate the movement and stores excess energy.
Due to this mechanism, automatic watches are characterized by a particularly smooth and reliable running and do not require a battery.
Automatic watches store and use the excess energy generated by the rotor in a power reserve which ensures operation during the night and/or during short rest periods of the wrist.
Longer rest periods are best spent in a watch winder. This ensures that your timepiece is always ready for use.
Chronographs are characterized by the fact that they always contain a additional element for time measurement, such as a dial that allows an independent exact time measurement.
Chronographs are because of this additionally built-in stopwatch a valued accessory for athletes and all who need a measuring instrument to keep track of best times, running times, preparation times or the like.
Chronographs have pushbuttons directly on the case to start a time measurement. These pushbuttons are large enough to allow the function to be called up conveniently.
The technical to complex appearance of the chronographs, with its additional dials and large case/chronograph pushers, makes this type of watch maskuline-effect jewellery.
Movements used in chronographs are often mechanical. Quartz movements are also used. If you like it very unusual, you will even find chronographs with digital displays.
Electric wristwatches are often environmentally friendly because they are operated via solar cells. However, there are also many watches on the market - especially classic quartz watches - that are still powered by a battery.
Reliability and accuracy are generally highly appreciated for wristwatches with an electric movement. The maximum deviation per month is just ± 30 seconds. This value is only exceeded by radio-controlled watches.
Another strength of electric watches is that they are usually robust and low-maintenance watch types.
Mechanical watches are considered to be the most common watch type and work without batteries or solar power.
The energy supply of mechanical watches differs between watches whose movement is manually wound via a crown and watches whose movement is kept in rhythm by arm movements while being worn. The latter are known as automatic watches.
Multifunction watches are not only popular because of their application possibilities. At first glance, they often look like classic chronographs and enjoy great popularity - optically very attractive.
Multifunction watches, however, instead of the additional dial that chronographs have for the stopwatch function, offer very many interesting additional functions that no conventional wristwatch has:
In addition to a 24h display, these time displays can display several time zones or GPS-supported measurements. Especially the combination of GPS data and time measurement enables runners, athletes or hikers and travellers to call up details about routes they have covered, location displays, digital compass, altimeter or heart rates. Individual multifunction clocks even offer a tide display.
High-quality products of the Swiss Watchmakers Guild, which may bear the seal "Swiss Made", are referred to as Swiss watches. The seal, as a sign of quality, goes back to an ordinance from the 17th century, which was regulated by law in 1971.
The Swiss Made seal stands for Quality, reliability and longevity.
Manufacture, assembly and inspection of "Swiss Made" products always take place in Switzerland and are characterised by particularly high quality.
For decades, technology enthusiasts have appreciated the supporting functions of digital watches. These include in particular calendar functions, multifunction alarms and currency calculators. The digital displays in chronographs are often combined with the appearance and functions of an analogue device.
The development of Smartwatches goes well beyond this. This type of watch pursues the objective of making watch wearers a maximum of useful functions available.
For example, during jogging the watch provides its user with favourite music - by Bluetooth and corresponding headphones.
And should a person get lost, the GPS system helps to find the way back.
Connected to a Smartphone or Tablet, you can keep track of Emails or Contact requests during an appointment or lunch break. And if it's urgent, you can send voice messages or short information about the Smartwatch. The watch is a kind of micro office for the wrist.
Dive time and ascent time incl. decompression breaks keep water sports enthusiasts and professional divers reliably in view with a diver's watch.
Diver watches are characterized by a tested water resistance (of at least 20 atm) and must show a readability of time and dive time from a distance of 25 cm (even in darkness). In addition, this type of watch must offer the possibility of preselecting a time span by means of a timer or bezel.
The criteria that a diver's watch must meet in order to be allowed to be sold in Germany are defined in DIN 8306.
A watch should never just lie around. Just as you store your mobile phone and tablet in a case or use a sunglasses case, it is advisable to store or display wristwatches in a watch box. Stylish watch boxes in gloss finish can be found in the shop for four watches or slightly larger for up to 20 watches. To the watch boxes

And for the storage of your automatic watches we offer winder for single watches and in larger version for up to 8 watches - also in noble gloss optics of wood, glass and plastic. To the watch-movers
