What is the dial on a watch?

Vaer Watches Updated by Vaer Watches

The dial, also known as the face, is the part of a watch that displays the time and other information such as the date, day of the week, or other functions.

The dial is typically located in the center of the watch and is visible through a transparent crystal or glass covering.

The dial is usually marked with hour markers, minute markers, and hands that indicate the time. The hour markers may be represented by numerals, indices, or other symbols, and the minute markers may be represented by small lines or dots around the edge of the dial.

The dial may also have other features, such as sub-dials that display additional information or complications, such as a chronograph or a moon phase indicator. The design of the dial can vary greatly depending on the style of the watch, ranging from simple and minimalistic to more elaborate and decorative designs.

The dial is an important part of the watch both functionally and aesthetically. It is one of the main components that defines the style and character of a watch, and can greatly influence the overall look and feel of the timepiece.
