Understanding how an automatic watch works

The watches in the Aston Martin DB5 collection are equipped with a sophisticated automatic movement that uses the wearer's kinetic energy to wind itself. Before going into the details of the winding process, it is important to understand how this type of watch works.

The automatic winding mechanism

Unlike manually wound watches, automatic watches are wound by the natural movements of the wearer's wrist. Inside the watch, an oscillating rotor moves with each movement of the wrist, transferring kinetic energy to a mainspring that powers the movement of the watch. So as long as the watch is worn regularly, it will wind itself automatically.

Steps to reassemble your DB5 collection watch

Checking the current status of your watch

Before starting the winding process, be sure to check the current condition of your watch. If it seems to be running out of power or if the power reserve is low, this is the ideal time to wind it.

Using the crown to wind your watch

Although automatic watches wind naturally with the movement of your wrist, you can also use the crown to wind your watch manually if necessary. Turn the crown clockwise until you feel resistance.

Recommended reassembly frequency

Although automatic watches wind naturally with the movement of the wrist, it is advisable to wear them regularly to maintain their optimum performance. If you do not wear your watch for an extended period, it may need to be wound manually.

Influence of the power reserve

The power reserve of your watch made from an Aston Martin DB5 plays a crucial role in its operation. It ensures the continued precision of the movement even when the watch is not worn regularly. Thanks to this power reserve, your watch remains ready for use, offering an uninterrupted watchmaking experience.

Advice on caring for your DB5 collection watch

Avoid over-assembly

Although automatic watches wind naturally with the movement of the wrist, avoid winding your watch too far by hand, as this could damage the internal mechanism.

Clean your watch regularly

Winding your watch is also an excellent opportunity to give it a quick clean. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to gently wipe the case and bracelet of your watch.
