A mechanical watch is a timekeeping device that operates without electronic components, relying on intricate gears, springs, and escapements to measure and display time. Its precise movement is powered by winding a mainspring, resulting in the consistent and elegant motion of the watch hands to indicate hours, minutes, and sometimes seconds. There are a wide variety of complications that may be present in a mechanical watch. They add to the functionality of the timepiece and enhance its overall appeal. Complications include automatic winding, calendar, alarm, chronograph, minute repeater, tourbillon, and many more, making mechanical watches a symbol of precision craftsmanship and artisanal horology.
