Everyone hates the crown of their watches. Yes, it’s essential but at the end of the day, it keeps digging into your hand.
It’s the rotating disk that’s usually placed on the 3 o clock position of your device. It is more prominent than other buttons on the watch’s side as it needs to be easily accessible.
It needs to be gripped as the crown helps you change the time. If you’re the owner of a mechanical or automatic watch, the crown acts as a self-winder a lot of the time.
Hopefully, you know what a self-winder is. If you don’t, relax:
An automatic watch moves with you. It doesn’t have a battery so the kinetic energy produced by you keeps its gears going. This requires that you wear it very often. Unfortunately, you may be forgetful and leave your watch lying around.
This can affect the accuracy of the device so it needs to be rewound, which tightens its gears and springs. This is what the crown does.
