5 most cost-effective mechanical watches for men

1

Different with quartz watches, mechanical watches use the clockwork mechanism on the mainspring (usually by manual winding or automatic winding) to keep the time, independent of battery, and mechanical watches have exquisite craftsmanship elements, which are often regarded as preferable. Although quartz watches are relatively cheap, every considerate watch collector or watch fanatic should own at least one mechanical watch. Here are 5 most cost-effective mechanical watches. Choose any of them, to start your mechanical watch journey.
