Mechanical (hand-wind) Movement:

[available in the Aviator model]

This movement is driven by the powerful main spring. but there is no balance weight winding the spring like with the automatic movement. The stored energy of the spring is slowly released while the gears turn and progress the time. This was the first type of watch movement developed in Switzerland before the invention of modern mechanics or robotics; meticulously assembled by skilled watchmakers in an area of Switzerland known as the Watch Valley - outside of Bern, Geneva and Zurich.

The mechanical movement was used in luxury timepieces and pocket watches dating back to 1704; one feature of the mechanical movement is they require winding every 36+/- hours to re-tighten the main spring and maintain an accurate time. Many wearers of mechanical watches get in the habit of winding them every day, to maintain a constant tension to the spring and avoid reset the time.

But be careful though, DON'T OVERWIND! How can you tell? You'll feel the spring/winding get tight / tough / sticky; then for heavens sakes, stop winding! Otherwise the spring will break and that can be costly.
