Hi there, here at TimeFaq I believe we all have a big weakness for timepieces, or hopefully is starting to have one! Watches are more than just tools worn on our wrists; they're like miniature works of art that reveal a lot about the passage of time. I can't wait to share my passion for timepieces and everything else that I've learned.
My interest in timepieces has always been strong. It all began when I received my first watch from my parents as a present when I was a child.
Why I'm Fascinated by Watches: Watches are like tiny windows into artistry and history. I can't get enough of how they've evolved through the years, from prehistoric sundials to pocket timepieces to the fashionable wristwatches we wear today. The individual stories behind each watch are fascinating.
Have you ever questioned the components of a watch? The dial (the watch face), hands (which indicate the time), crown (the knob that turns), and bezel (a ring surrounding the dial) are all present. You appreciate timepieces more when you are aware of these components.
A movement, which functions like an engine inside a watch, gives it life. There are various kinds, including mechanical (the traditional variety), quartz (very precise), and automatic (which winds itself). I'll explain these to you without using too many technical terms.
Stainless steel and more flashy materials like gold and platinum are all used to manufacture watches. The material influences a watch's appearance, feel, and cost. We'll talk further about this.
For me, my watch collection are like my own hidden gems. I have various timepieces, from elegant dress watches for formal events to rugged diving watches for outdoor activities. Some of them are priceless antiques, while others are modern timepieces. I treasure every watch in my collection because each has a unique personality. Here's a list of watch reviews from my own and shared collection :
