Types of watch dials for sale


As we all know, watch faces come in many styles, materials and designs. If you’re looking to restore a vintage timepiece or have a new watch custom made, you have a number of options. For example, a mechanical watch dial has hour markers and hands for analog timekeeping. The digital watch face has an electronic display for modern digital readouts.

Watches play a very important role in the fashion industry. If you often shop online or read some fashion magazines, you will see many different watches. Watch dials are made from a variety of materials.

There is a dial made of pure gold, which has a nice luster. There is also a mother-of-pearl dial. In addition, stainless steel and plastic have also become the preferred choice of dial materials because of their convenient maintenance and price advantages.

At the same time, in recent years, users will choose to buy different types of watches in order to match different clothes. Watch manufacturers come up with different styles of watch dials.

For example, there are casual sports-style dials specially designed for casual people; there are also some formal and luxurious dials, decorated with gemstones or diamonds. Certain dials are also designed for specific types of timepieces, such as divers, pilots or military watches.
