Learning How To Build A Movement

Want to gain more appreciation for what actually goes into making a watch “tick’? Rotate Watches offers up a few kits that allow you to build a watch movement on your own. Their range of movement kits include a Seagull ST3600, Miyota 8215, and a Seiko NH35. Each movement is delivered fully assembled, properly lubricated, and comes with a beginner friendly guide. This is a fun way to tinker around with a movement and to understand how each part integrates with one another, without having to fiddle and mess around with a movement in one of your own watches. And when you don’t feel like playing watchmaker, the movement itself will look pretty rad on any desk, shelf or TV console.
