Find the perfect timepiece to complement your lifestyle with Exclusively Diamonds in Mankato, Minnesota.
High-end watches are not only made with quality materials, but they also offer an array of useful functions. All features apart from the standard hour-and-minute hands are called complications. There are a great many complications available, each providing a helpful tool to make everyday life easier. Some are borderline essential. At Exclusively Diamonds, we have many exceptional timepieces sporting these fantastic complications. Find one that accentuates your life as well as your ensembles.
The chronograph is a classic and handy complication. These marvelous devices impart a stopwatch-style function to the piece. They are essential for athletes, as they elevate the fitness experience by allowing the wearer to track their progress. Meanwhile, bakers and chefs can always keep track of their dishes’ prep time, while professionals can ensure their meetings never last too long.
Modern chronographs usually have two buttons on the crown, usually called “pushers.” One pusher resets the timer while the other pauses and continues. Some vintage pieces have one pusher that resets and starts the chronograph.
This complication is highly useful in the modern bicoastal workforce. It shows the time in multiple time zones, ensuring that no meeting is missed because you mixed up the timezones. There are two ways watches do this. Some have subdials on the face, making it easier to view the whole picture at the cost of legibility. Others feature an additional hand with a distinctive style. Regardless of the presentation, GMTs are always a great addition to a timepiece.
The day/date complication is arguably the most common. It imparts a small digit or weekday display on the dial that reveals what day it is. Their popularity likely results from their understated style. Whether a weekday or a number, it adds a fashionable and functional accent.
Power Reserve Indicator
The power reserve indicator is essential for automatic and manual timepieces. It ensures that the wearer always knows when to wind the watch. To be truly accurate, the watch needs to be wound. You don’t want to be relying on your timepiece for timekeeping when its power goes out. Power reserve indicators are also great for automatic watches, especially if they aren’t worn often. Automatic timepieces still need to be wound if they haven’t been worn in a while, as they rely upon wrist movement to work.
The alarm complication is rare in contemporary timepieces, but it is highly useful. They ensure the wearer won’t miss any important appointments. While phones usually offer alarms, a timepiece is more trustworthy than its electronic counterpart. So, long as you keep it wound, its reliability is guaranteed.
