All thanks to the so-called 'movement'. If it's something that piques your interest, then read on, as we'll reveal everything you need to know about it.

The movement, often known as caliber, is the engine that drives the hands and other complexities of a clock. The kind of movement in a watch is usually unimportant to casual watch wearers. For watch collectors and aficionados, though, it's a huge concern since they value the artistry and inner workings that keep their timepieces ticking.
