1. What is the date of a watch?

The date of a watch designates the horological complication displaying the date at the same time as the time. The task of date watches is therefore to automatically give the date in addition to the time!

 

2. How does the date of a watch work?

Date watches actually incorporate a second mechanism similar to that of the hour. The mechanism then becomes more complex, since two cogs are set in motion, but at two different rates.

The date is a very well-known and widespread function in the world of watchmaking. Modern watches almost always offer this horological complication. The date is, however, available in three versions: the simple calendar, the annual calendar, and the perpetual calendar.

 

3. Calendar watches, what date system are they based on?

  • The simple calendar

Calendar watches generally display the date from 1 to 31, and require manual adjustment when the month has less than 31 days. The date used for these watches is a simple calendar. Real aesthetic touch, allmen's watches by Charlie Paris proposes to display the date, in addition to the hour, thanks to this calendar system.

  • The annual calendar

The annual calendar is a more advanced horological complication than the simple calendar. Watches with this type of date automatically manage the months at 30 and 31 days. Only the month of February will have to be set manually.

  • The perpetual calendar

The perpetual calendar is a horological complication very popular with watch lovers. A famous great horological complication, the perpetual calendar manages the date automatically, whether there are 28, 29, 30 or 31 days in the month!
