Watch Components
  • Band: The cuff that wraps around the wrist making the piece a wrist watch. Metal bands are alled bracelets. Leather, rubber or fabric bands are called watch straps.
  • Bezel: Ring that attaches the crystal to the watch case.
  • Case: Frame that houses the watch mechanism.
  • Case Back: A removable cover that allows access to the internal mechanism of a watch.
  • Clasp: The hardware that fastens the band together; a buckle.
  • Crown: A button on the side of the case that adjusts the time and date. The button also winds many mechanical watches.
  • Crystal: The clear protective case over the watch dial; usually a Plexiglas or mineral disc. Hardlex crystals, a heat-treated mineral crystal, and sapphire crystals are especially scratch-resistant.
  • Dial: The face of a watch case that displays the timekeeping functions.
  • Subdial: A small window or register with its own hands that is placed on the main dial. Chronograph watches have three or four subdials to display multiple functions.
  • Lugs: The hardware that connects the case to the watch band.
