The appeal of an automatic watch can’t be overstated. Absent of electronics, automatic timepieces are powered entirely by mechanical parts. Unlike quartz (battery-powered) watches, automatics—if worn consistently—will never stop ticking, with the seconds hand gliding around the dial in a mesmerizing sweep. For the Felix, we’re offering two Swiss-made automatic movements, both derived from the classic 2824-2 automatic design. The first is from Sellita, a manufacturer quickly earning recognition as a major force in the industry. Our Sellita SW200 is the Elabore-grade version, complete with Incabloc shock protection, a decorated rotor, and a more exacting time-regulation standard. Our second option is the STP1-11—with a handsome geneva stripe finish—by Swiss Technology Production, a more recent entrant in the Swiss movement industry with ambitious technical goals. Based in Manno, STP produces each of its movements under a single roof.
