This section and its chapters gather information essential to the understanding of horological techniques, arts and crafts.
BASIC MECHANICAL PRINCIPLES
This chapter explains the functioning of a simple mechanical movement and its various components.
In horology, the term “complication” commonly refers to any mechanism or information additional to those intended to display the time (hours, minutes, & seconds). Complications can be purely indicative or contribute to improving the performance and accuracy of a watch.
This chapter deals with the complicated and complex mechanisms that are not related to the time-display information.
