An analog watch is a classic timepiece that displays time using traditional hour and minute hands on a numbered dial, along with rotating hour and minute markers. Unlike digital watches, which show time in numerical digits, analog watches have a more traditional and aesthetic appeal.
Components of an Analog Watch:
Dial/Face: The circular or square surface of the watch where the numbers or indices denoting hours are located.
Hour Hand: A shorter hand indicating the current hour on the watch face.
Minute Hand: Longer hand denoting the minutes past the hour.
Second Hand (Optional): Some analog watches have a thin second hand that moves around the dial, ticking off seconds.
Markers/Indices: These are the hourly divisions on the watch face, typically marked by numbers (1 to 12) or other symbols.
Crown: A knob on the side of the watch is used for setting the time. Pulling out the crown allows you to adjust the time and push it back in to secure the setting.
