WATCH ANATOMY 01
THE FACE OF A WATCH HAS THESE ELEMENTS:
case is a container that protects the dial and the timekeeping mechanism inside. The basic material is stainless steel, or simply shortened as steel by most watch brands.
crown is a rotatable knob outside the case (normally placed at 3 o’clock) to adjust the time. It is necessary to keep the crown in a locked position when underwater.
dial typically showcases the time: hours and minutes, along with other features. The hour markers are usually in Arabic or Roman numerals, or simply batons.
flange is the outermost rim of a dial. It can accommodate a tachymeter, which helps measure things like distance or velocity.
hands are indicators of time, often shaped like long batons hanging from the central axis and pointing at the respective hours, minutes or seconds.
