I even strolled to the watch store and saw the brand’s new three-needle and one-line (also known as the standard pointer Regulator) watch. Each one performed its duties one by one. People who have seen such watches must have the same feelings as me. I don’t doubt if this kind of watch is easy to sell, I just wonder what kind of people buy it. The clerk said that one was sold last week, and the customer was a lawyer. Anyone who asked for the details of this watch was mostly a low-key and smart-looking person.

After buying and playing numerous watches Jiazhen, go back to this simple and easy tradition. The shape of a watch is a sublimation for those who understand it.

Regulator is usually translated into standard pointers, which are often called three-needle and one-line in watch fans.

Because the three needles are separated, they will not interfere with each other during operation, and the accuracy is greatly improved. This function occupied an important seat in the field of astronomy and observation and became a symbol of early high-end watches. Some people have described this function as ‘mother of clocks’, because many watchmakers will place a master clock in the factory specifically for standard time, and many watchmakers choose to use this as the master clock style. The place of this function in the heart of the Swiss.
