A watch is a portable timekeeping device worn on the wrist or carried in a pocket. It is designed to measure and display time accurately. Typically, watches consist of a timekeeping mechanism, such as quartz or mechanical movement, which drives the hands or digital display to indicate hours, minutes, and seconds. Watches serve as functional accessories that allow individuals to track time conveniently and efficiently. Over the years, watches have evolved to offer additional features beyond timekeeping, such as calendars, alarms, chronographs, and various specialized functions catering to specific needs, like diving or aviation. They are available in a wide range of designs, materials, and styles, catering to diverse tastes and preferences. These include analog watches with traditional hour and minute hands, digital watches with numeric displays, and hybrid watches combining both analog and digital elements. Materials commonly used in watchmaking include stainless steel, precious metals like gold or silver, ceramic, and various types of synthetic materials.
