I was wondering if the second hand on stowa watches, namely the antea, moves in a constant circle, never stopping similar to a rolex? Or does it tic toc and stop on each second? sweeping i believe they call it.
Mechanical watches (like a Rolex) will sweep, quartz will tick-tock. Stowas (and the Antea in particular) are mechanical, so they sweep
(Actually, mechanicals, including Rolex, tick something like 5-8 times per second depending on the exact movement, so the second hand moves 5-8 times per second, but it looks smooth and seems to sweep!)
