In this month’s giveaway, DCVW and Clockwork Synergy offer a 1960s LeGant automatic watch, with three Clockwork Synergy straps. Check out this lookbook, and enter at the end of this post!
Some LeGant models, such as the ‘QS’ were early “electric” watches, not to be confused with “electronic” watches. These electric watches were an evolutionary step between the previous mechanical watches and the modern quartz electronic watches of today. The electric movements utilized a balance wheel mechanism for timekeeping, as do mechanical watches, both vintage and modern.
However, the main difference was that these were powered by battery (rather than the coiled mainspring to store power, as done in mechanical movements). This hybrid electro-mechanical movement helped to overcome problematic short battery life in the first electric watches.
