Great in depth look at the Spring Drive from one of Timezone’s finest.

And so we come to the latest Seiko innovation, the Spring Drive. Although virtually all mechanical watches use a spring as a power source, the Spring Drive is extremely unique in that it dispenses with the 300+ year old idea of a mechanical escapement for the regulation of time. The result is a watch that avoids the age-old problems associated with mechanical escapements such as hairsprings, delicate balance wheels, pallet forks, and escape wheels (not to mention maintenance issues).

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
