Automatic

Arcaido watches don’t need a battery to work: instead, the natural motion of the wearer provides energy to run the watch. An Arcaido watch worn regularly on the wrist every day requires no manual charging. If not worn for about 38 hours, it will stop. When the watch needs to be wound manually, gently rotate the crown clockwise for at least a dozen times.
