The structure of the watch
There are countless watches in the world, but each watch cannot be separated from the basic structure, otherwise it cannot be called a complete watch. So what are watches made of? Let me introduce them to you.
The movement is the most important part of the watch . Its quality determines the quality of the watch. Choosing a high-quality movement is crucial to the quality of the product. Japan's MIYOTA mechanical automatic movement, its product failure rate is only 5‰, and the daily error is ±15 seconds. China's fully automatic mechanical movement, its product failure rate is 7‰, and the daily error is ±30 seconds. MIYOTA quartz movement is the most commonly used movement by many watch manufacturers at present, the product failure rate is only 3‰, and the monthly error is ±30 seconds. Among the movements of many brands, MIYOTA movement has won unanimous praise in the international market for its touching characteristics and excellent accuracy. In recent years, the product quality of Chinese mechanical automatic movements has also been continuously improved, and the quality is relatively stable.
At present, the market case mostly adopts alloy case, copper case, steel case, tungsten steel case, etc.
Alloy case:Generally speaking, the processing technology of the alloy case is simple, the production cycle is short, the output is large, and the price is low. In recent years, it has developed rapidly.However, due to its shortcomings in water resistance, wear resistance and corrosion resistance, it is rarely used in large-scale celebrations. Belongs to the middle and low grade watches.
Copper case: The copper case has the advantages of easy processing, beautiful appearance, good waterproof performance, surface wear resistance and corrosion resistance. Many manufacturers use it. Affordable price is also its advantage. It belongs to high and mid-range watches.
Steel case: Generally speaking, the processing of steel case is more complicated, the output is small, and the price is high. Its performance is higher than that of alloy case and copper case, and it is generally used for high-end electronic watches, mechanical or mechanical automatic watches. It is a high-end watch.
Tungsten steel case: It is difficult to process, not easy to wear, and is equipped with a sapphire watch, a Japanese movement and a tungsten steel strap. This watch is generally a high-end electronic watch.
The choice of the strap should match the case, and what kind of watch strap should be selected for the case of what material. One exception is that the case of any material can be matched with the leather strap, and the effect is also ideal. The straps are divided into: ceramic straps, metal straps (tungsten-titanium alloy straps, solid steel straps, solid copper straps, solid powder metallurgy steel straps, steel sheet straps, steel wire braided straps, etc.), belts, nylon braided straps, etc. The ceramic watch has the characteristics of not easy to wear, not allergic, beautiful and so on.
The dial material is generally made of copper, aluminum, paper, etc. For a watch, the design of the dial is also very important.The same case with a dial of different patterns and materials can achieve different effects.
The function of the back cover of the watch is to fix the movement, dustproof, waterproof, etc. It is mostly made of stainless steel. The back can be etched with text and patterns, and it generally has three assembly methods with the case.
6.Hands and crowns
Hands are an important part of displaying the time. Generally, there are three types of hands: hour hand, minute hand and second hand, except in special cases. For example, ultra-thin watches generally only have hour and minute hands, and the second hand is optional according to the situation of the movement. The crown is an important part for adjusting the hour hand (time) and date (calendar), and it is mostly manual. The handle is generally made of copper plus plating or stainless steel.
