A mechanical Oris watch has a number of practical advantages. It is more than accurate enough for daily life, it’s very durable, and if it’s well maintained, it can be handed down from generation to generation as a precious heirloom or keepsake. A good mechanical watch is often more accurate over a short period of time, such as a five-second interval, than a quartz watch. Indeed, many professional photographers have discovered that using a mechanical watch to time their exposures gives more accurate results. Mechanical watches have no battery, are impervious to low levels of magnetism, are perfectly safe to the environment, and as self-contained, perpetually regenerating sources of energy, show a respect and concern for nature.
