Thread: Does this kind of watch have a name?

  1. #1

    Does this kind of watch have a name?

    I've just found this Tissot which I rather like. Any adorably take on the kind of thing A Lange & Sohne make. Is there a name for this style of dial though?

    I've seen them described as offset dials. If there is a fancier name than that, I'd be curious to know.

  3. Likes whatmeworry, is that my watch liked this post

    The more I look at that pic the more I think both dials need to move about 2mm diagonally down and to the left.

    That's to do with chiming at certain times isn't it? I don't think the Tissot does that

    Ah, good point. They do look like that though.

    Exactly what I was thinking. The asymmetry is cool but it feels un-centered.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Perhaps Lange & Sohne has a patent on symmetric asymmetry - if you take my meaning - which prevents Tissot from making a better looking dial. Just a random thought.

    I'm wondering if it looks different in the flesh
