THE BACK OF A WATCH HAS THESE EL­E­MENTS:

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

case- back refers to the back of a watch. Some have trans­par­ent, sap­phire-cov­ered backs to re­veal the move­ment.

Jew­els, such as syn­thetic ru­bies, are of­ten used as bear­ings for gears of an au­to­matic or man­ual-wind­ing move­ment.

lugs are the pro­jected parts of a case that con­nect to a bracelet or strap. The shape can vary from one model to an­other.

ro­tor is a me­chan­i­cal piece that winds and pow­ers an au­to­matic move­ment. The size may vary be­tween watches.

strap is a wrist­watch band that con­nects to the lugs. The ma­te­rial used may be leather, fab­ric, or var­i­ous met­als.
