These "self-winding" watches have been around almost forever. They work by having racheted winding mechanisms and off-center weights which utilize the motion of the wearer to, effectively, "wind" the watch.....
They do NOT work if they are not on a regularly-moving body part, such as a wrist....
P.S. When I was younger, I had one.... and I wore it on my wrist when I did you-know-what and the darn thing wound itself so tight that it couldn't/wouldn't move any more, and I had to take it back to the jeweler to get it "unwound"..... Afterwards, I was careful not to do you-know-what so vigorously!!!!!

Are wrist watches still in or have they been kicked out of fashion?I still believe in the time piece.
