How do I adjust the settings on a tourbillon watch?
Given the intricate nature of tourbillon mechanisms, we recommend referring to the specific user manual provided with your Vanderbilt New York tourbillon watch. Care must be taken while setting to ensure the delicate mechanics are not disrupted.
What is the difference between a Quartz, Mechanical, Automatic, and Tourbillon watch?
Quartz Watches: These run on batteries. The battery sends an electric signal through a piece of crystal quartz, causing the crystal to vibrate and the watch to function.
Mechanical Watches: These are powered by a mainspring, a coiled wire of special metal. As the mainspring unwinds, it releases energy to power the watch.
Automatic Watches: These are a type of mechanical watch. They have a rotor which moves with the motion of the wearer's arm, winding the mainspring.
Tourbillon Watches: A tourbillon aims to counter the effects of gravity by mounting the escapement and balance wheel in a rotating cage. This negates the effect of gravity when the timepiece (and thus the escapement) is stuck in a certain position.
How should I care for these different types of watches?
Quartz Watches: Might require battery replacements. Avoid strong magnetic fields which can affect its precision.
Mechanical and Automatic Watches: Need to be wound periodically. Avoid shocks and always handle with care due to the delicate internal mechanisms.
Tourbillon Watches: Given their intricacy, always handle with utmost care, avoiding any sudden jolts. Regular servicing is essential to maintain its precision.
