Analog displays have been in use for many years, and their structure is undoubtedly inspired by the movement of the shadow of a sundial.
Mechanical watches did not initially have a minute hand and only showed the passage of time. However, today there is a great variety to show the time on wristwatches. Watchmakers use much creativity for their bold designs to attract the customer's attention, which has also been very well received.

a brief view of the different types of calendars

When buying a watch, it is better to get information about the signs and numbers on its screen and its appearances. Generally, watchmaking was born from astronomy; since humankind has sought to obtain a precise plan for his life over time. Time was measured by the moon, the sun, and the stars. Their measurement cycle led to the creation of calendars to display dates, days of the week, and months. Here is a complete sample of all calendars, from the simplest to the most complex:


Simple calendars: The most common example of calendars on a watch is the monthly calendar which shows the date every day. Although, for months less than 31 days, the calendar should be manually set.
The date can be displayed in two ways; By hand or inside a small window that usually changes at midnight (between 11 am and 5 am).

Large calendars consist of two-digit, separate numbers beginning with 01 and ending with 31. In some older watches, a problem appears after the number 31, the number 32, which must be changed manually after the number 32 to 01 to display the date correctly for a month.
Calendar calendars: Another type of calendar watch is a watch that displays the days of the week in addition to the date, which includes the names of the days of the week instead of 31.

full-date calendars: another type is watches that have a triple calendar. These watches Display the date, month, year, and days of the week. If the status of the month changes, you can say that the watch has a full-date calendar. In addition, some watches display numbers from 1 to 24 on their screens to indicate the hours of the day or night, for example, 9 am or 9 pm.


The adjustment screw is usually placed on the frame (bezel) next to the number three and is mainly used to adjust the watch. Another use for the crown is to set up the date displayed on the dial. You can pull out the crown in 2 or 3 steps; the first pull is to set the date and the second pull is for setting the hour and time.
In many sports watches and messy screens, 2 to 5 pushbuttons, also called pump buttons, are used to adjust or use the watch, but in most cases, hidden pumps are applied for beauty purposes.
