Then how come my Emporio Armani just says "Mechanico" on it and it does not even say Automatic and yet it is an Automatic and not a wind up watch ? What would be stamped on a wind up watch then ?Mechanical.
Autos are obviously mechanicals too, but they are referred to as automatics to differentiate them from the hand winders.
Maybe because Armani is Italian and "Mechanico" is Italian for automatic ? This is just my opinion .They are commonly called manual wind watches. They don't have any markings to indicate this. Before automatics there was no need to state what it was because it could only be one thing - manual. Nearly all mechanical watches nowadays are automatics and commonly this is stated on the dial, however this is not a rule. Modern manual winds are generally in a higher price range than entry level automatics and tend to be more decorated in the movement department. Nothing identifies a modern manual - you just have to know, or try shaking it and seeing what happens.
In short: manual for hand winds, automatic for automatics.
Oh btw - I don't know why your watch is named the way it is.
