Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Understanding Different Watch Terms

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 11:56 PM
Man WatchSummary: An interesting article clarifying some of the terms you may need to understand to choose the right watch.

Time is incredibly important to everyone and it’s hard to imagine how we would live our everyday lives without being able to glance at our smartphone or watch and know what time it is. Like it or not, we have to know what the time is to catch trains, be at work or school on time, or see our favourite programme on television. Most of us own at least one watch, but shopping for a new one can be confusing as there are so many terms associated with the mechanism of watches, all of which mean something different.

Water Resistancy

Often a watch will be labelled along the lines of “water resistant to 100 metres”. This means that you can dive to a depth of 100 metres and the water will not get into the watch. Although it’s nice to have a watch which you can wear in the swimming pool or in the shower without worrying about it stopping working, not many of us will be diving at depth and unless you go scuba diving every weekend it is probably not worth shelling out extra money for a watch with a high degree of water resistancy.

24 Hour Dial

We’re all used to a standard watch face with 12 numbers, but some watches have 24 numbers instead. This means that it takes one day for the small hand to travel around the face once, rather than 12 hours. Using a watch with a 24 hour dial can take some getting used to, and apart from the fact that some people prefer the look of a 24 hour dial, there is no real benefit to it when compared with a standard dial.


A watch which is marketed as a chronograph means that in addition to the standard watch face, it has the capability to work as a stopwatch too. The stopwatch sometimes uses the same standard watch face, but more often there is a smaller face in the centre of the watch which operates the stopwatch. These sorts of watches can look attractive, but are not as accurate as a digital stopwatch or an app on your smartphone which will perform the same function.


When you see a men’sHugo Boss watch for example which is marketed as quartz, this refers to the internal workings of the watch rather than the case or the strap. Inside the watch, there will be a tiny quartz crystal which forms part of the electric circuit which keeps the watch ticking. Using quartz means the watch is more accurate than other types of watches and is not affected by differences in temperature.

Seconds Hand

All watches have two hands which show hours and minutes, but some will also have a third hand which shows seconds. This sort of accuracy may not be required for everyday use, and watches with too many hands can look cluttered. Whether or not you choose a watch with a second hand will depend on what you intend using it for, or whether you think the watch is more visually appealing than a watch with just two hands.
