The emergence of smartphones, now widespread, slowly but surely turns the clock into an obsolete item, which is very sad, because with the manufacture of watches are associated rich traditions of decoration and artistic skill. Listed here 24 pairs of wristwatches, both paying tribute to the ancient traditions of making chronometers, and demonstrating an innovative approach to the design of the modern era, are able to support our love for these fine time-measuring devices.
One of the most remarkable features of the design of watches, especially when it comes to mechanical watches - is their size. It's not just about the beautiful design, but also that all of their details are attached to a small disc clipped to your wrist. And yet, despite this limitation, their dials are adorned with knights, rotating planets, beautiful birds and poetic fairy-tale subjects. Many of the greatest masters in making watches in the world do not limit themselves to the creation of simple chronometers that measure the passage of time. Your watch can allow you to follow the calendar, over time in different parts of the world and even behind the phases of the moon and the motion of heavenly bodies.
On the other hand, the digital clock has opened up new horizons of opportunities for watchmakers, previously unavailable. Accurate modern design, lighting, lack of moving parts are just some of the main features of the digital clock presented on our list. The lack of moving parts allows digital watchmakers to use new directions: dials of such chronometers can display information in a completely new way, and they can be flexible or even transparent.
If you know about any model of the watch, which, in your opinion, is worth our attention, you can upload its photo in the commentary to this article.Photogallery Total | 47 pictures
