Basic View Features and their Functions


1. Belt

The bezel is the outer ring around your watch and the part of the clock that holds the crystal in place. It can be as transparent or decorative as can be customized according to the owner of the watch. Additionally, it sometimes works – like a spinning top of Seiko diving clocks. The bezels are usually made of metal, but ceramic bezels are best known as the latest ones.


2. Case

The case is the shape of the most outward clock and is similar to the location of the clock. It gives it a natural shape and protects the inner workings of your watch. Clocks can be made of ceramic, metal, or plastic.


3. Back Case

The back case is the back of the case that you can remove to access the internal parts of the clock.


4. The crown

The “small button” on the side of your watch is usually located within 3 or 4 hours. Used to set the date and time. The crown can also perform additional functions depending on the clock. For example, you can use it to scan a mechanical clock.


5. Crystal

Part of the clock that shows this is made of glass, plastic, sapphire, or other materials. Protects dial, hands, and other external and internal parts of the clock.


6. Dial

This plate-shaped base is found under the clock crystal. Dial the part of the clock that shows the time, as well as the hands and clocks.


7. Hands

These are dial-up indicators that point to hours, minutes, and seconds. Most watches have three hands.


8. Hour Signs

Hour markers are real number labels on the face of the clock. They label time (usually from 1 to 12).


9. Drums

These are small pieces of metal that attach to a wall case. They go out of the watch case and secure the seat belt or bracelet. Lugs come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can tell the style and look of your watch.


10. Pusher

Pushers are also known as push-pieces or buttons. They are similar to crowns but are used for more advanced functions.


11. Ropes, a.k.a. Rings

Ropes or rings can be leather or rubber straps that help attach a watch to your wrist. These could be metal belts made of metal.


12. Small

Lower dialing is a small dialing function in large clock dialing. The subtitles are used for secondary tasks, such as the display of seconds or a chronograph. The subdial is dial as the pusher reaches the crown.







Bonus: Movement

We do not have to specify too much about your internal clock function, but it is good to know that the internal components of the clock as a whole are called movements. Now you know it!
