            Will my watch withstand sharp knocks and impacts?

            In principle, yes. But you should of course avoid them wherever possible. Or tighten the watchstrap as much as possible - this alone is a good way of reducing the effects of impacts. It also helps to compensate for fluctuations in temperature.

            A mechanical wristwatch is a precision instrument. Tolerances at the manufacturing stage are in the hundredths and thousandths of millimetres. Extreme, repeated shocks and impacts, of the kind that might be encountered riding off-road on a motorcycle or mountain bike, can have a negative influence on the rate of a watch movement.
