It’s In Your Hands

Very recently, I came across a rather old article talking about the magnificently shaped Parmigiani Ovale Pantograph watch. The most remarkable aspect of this watch is its telescoping hands which trace the shape of the distinctive Oval dial as they move along. Imagine the huge degree of creative and mechanical challenge that must have gone into the making of this one timepiece!

 

There is something riveting about the hands of watch. They can either tick or sweep along gracefully in analog watches and get you to wax philosophical as well. Turning back the hands of time is just one of the things that a lot of people would like to do! The importance of hands as far as watch is concerned can also be sensed in Jarod Kintz’s words, “I want to know how watches can tell all the time in the world using only two hands.”

 

Watches and their hands come in so many different permutations and combinations. You can also choose watches according to the uniqueness of their hands. Take the Fossil Recruiter FS4937 for instance. The hour hand has a rather sporty, triangular, arrowhead look while the minute hand is rather slim.

One of the reasons why the Penguin Men’s Jackson OP3048BKWH has made it onto this list is because of the rather quaint Penguin that helps you tell time!

Another watch with the arrowhead formation is the Coach Women’s Classic 14502128. There is a beautiful elegance to all the hands on this watch’s dial and accenting the hands with white is just the perfect way to showcase time on this wristwatch.

Before you raise your eyebrows at the inclusion of the Movado Stiri 606191 in this list – think about the fact that this watch showcases the hands in almost entirety! Nothing else to distract your eyes from the hands! Classic, slim and pointed – these hands are truly worthy of holding time.

The hour hand with its little circle makes the Swiss Legend Men’s Luminous SL-21344-11 a rather handsome watch. There is something rather sumptuous about the look and feel of this timepiece.

The Invicta Men’s Speedway INVICTA-15896 seems to have a rather busy dial with multiple hands to tell time. The old-fashioned arrow on the minute hand and the almost pen nib like markings on the hour hand make this watch extremely special.

Finally on our list is the Hamilton Flight Timer H64554331. Hamilton is known for its watches that look extremely machinelike and in this particular wristwatch; the hands evoke all the power of an aircraft.
