all windup watches work by a mainspring that is wound up really tight, the spring wants to let go as soon as it is wound up tight. as you wind up the mainspring that parts in the watch start to move and the watch starts to keeps time. this is called a balance action. the balance wheel has a hairspring under it that returns the balance wheel to its main position as you wind the mainspring the force of it puts tension on the parts and that is how the windup watch works.
In the days of manual wind up watches it was so you could wind your watch up without taking it off.
There are plenty of manufacturers who make wind-up watches still, but they are rare and need to be wound about once a day.
There are watches that wind as well as watches that run on batteries.
You wind it.
you used to have to wind them up and now they use three micro chips
Yes, atomic watches do work in Puerto Rico. Atomic watches are also commonly called radio controlled watches and will work practically anywhere.
The wind can blow in any direction.
Rolex watches are, indeed, self-winding. A century ago they did make watches that one had to hand wind, however.
Automatic and kinetic-movement watches do not have pendulums. However, in its place they have a semicircle-shaped rotating weight called a rotor. The rotors in automatic watches will wind the mainspring. Kinetic-movement watches' rotors are connected to a generator that will charge a battery.

A watch's mechanism that is powered by a manual activity such as being wound up by hand or by the movement of the watch. Automatic watches require constant wearing or they need to be placed in a watch winder box to maintain the winding and settings of the automatic watch. A watch winder allows you to own more than one automatic watch and not have to worry about resetting the time on any of them. Manual watches you need to wind, automatic watches wind themselves. http://www.thewatchery.com
You wind the box up and it pops up looking at you.
by wind a wind meter can't work with out wind
wind farms are built and turbines are put up. As the wind blows it turns the turbines generating electricity.
They work off the same principle of magnets.
stick it up your bum and it will start to work again
Yes all quartz watches need a battery to work.
That depends on the watch. In some watches, you wind them, and the energy is stored in a spring. In most modern watches, the energy is stored in a battery.
Since automatic watch winders are made for automatic watches, they will not work on battery powered watches. The two are not compatible. Battery powered watches are powered by quartz or ion lithium batteries.
The wind electricity work because of the wind mill, wind mill makes wind energy.
The two main categories are mechanical and quartz. Mechanical watches are split into two categories: manual and self-winding (aka automatic watch). Mechanical watches are powered by a wound spring that drives the gears. Automatic watches have a small spinning weight (called a rotor) that helps wind the spring which powers the watch. Manual watches rely on the watchwearer to wind the crown (knobs on a watch). Quartz watches are mostly powered by batteries and use the fast vibration of a quartz crystal to keep time.

panels work by the sun or by the wind they get energry from the sun or the wind
Antique pocket watches generally have one of two ways to be wound: 1. A winding stem, similar to a windup wrist watch; 2. A winding key, like older wind up toys.
