The General Trend Long Power Reserve Is Becoming The Norm

For a long time, the movement of mechanical movements was limited to two days. With the lapse of time and technological progress, its autonomous performance is gradually improving, and now there is no need to wind it up again. Continuous operation for three, eight, or even ten days is no longer a patent of the elite circle. This is a major trend in the watchmaking industry: the longest power reserve continues to climb to new heights, and the records of the past are successively broken; at the same time, the types of movements with 70 to 240 hours of power reserve are becoming more abundant and the price is getting more and more People-friendly, moving towards a simpler, broader and more practical direction.
   For a long time, the 45-hour power reserve is standard. It is less than two days from the full-string state to the end of kinetic energy, and the accuracy of the last few hours is often unsatisfactory. After being full last Friday evening, it won’t last until the next Monday morning. The need to rewind at the beginning of the work week is an important psychological reference point. The power reserve is too short, which means that when gardening or sports activities on the weekend, the wearer also needs to take care of his watch.

Zenith’s new 6150 movement, equipped with a dual barrel, provides 100 hours of power reserve.
