This is my self-winding (“Aut-O-Matic”) watch that I stopped wearing when it stopped self-winding because my wrist stopped moving properly.
It just so happened that, today, my husband received a new Russian mechanical watch in the post, and I started to look for ladies’ wind-up watches online (they are a bit few and far between).
“Can’t you hand wind your automatic watch?”, he asked.
“I don’t know. I don’t think so.”
He proved me wrong.
I am no longer at the mercy of watch batteries.
