Different Types Of Watch Complications

Watch complications are features or functions in addition to timekeeping. Some common types of watch complications include:

  1. Chronograph: a stopwatch function to measure elapsed time
  2. Perpetual calendar: displays the date, day, month, and year and automatically adjusts for leap years
  3. Moon phase: displays the current phase of the moon
  4. Tourbillon: a mechanism to counteract the effect of gravity on a watch's accuracy
  5. Alarm: a reminder function that sounds an alarm at a preset time
  6. Power reserve indicator: shows the remaining power in a watch's mainspring
  7. GMT/dual time: displays two time zones simultaneously
  8. Split-seconds (Rattrapante) chronograph: a chronograph with two second hands that can be started, stopped, and reset independently
  9. Minute repeater: strikes a mechanism that chimes the hours and minutes on demand
  10. Annual calendar: displays the date, day, and month and requires manual adjustment once a year for non-leap years.

These are just a few examples of the many types of watch complications that exist.
