Simplicity and Elegance: How Does a 1 Hand Watch Work and Why Choose Jcob?

Welcome to our blog, where we take you into the intriguing world of 1-hand watches. In this article we will explain in detail how these unique watches work, share a bit of background history and why Jcob is the brand to consider if you are looking for a watch of excellent quality and sleek design.


The Timeless Beauty of One-Hand Watches

1-hand watches, also known as Slow watches, bring a sense of simplicity and elegance to your wrist. Unlike traditional multi-hand watches, a 1-hand watch has only one hand that shows both the hours and minutes. This minimalist design provides a soothing and calm experience in our hectic daily lives.


A piece of history

The origin of 1-hand watches goes back hundreds of years. At a time when watches were still in their early stages, 1-hand watches were the norm. It wasn't until the invention of the anchor escapement in 1675 that multi-hand watches became popular. Today, however, we are seeing a resurgence in the popularity of 1-hand watches, and Jcob is playing a leading role in this trend.


How a 1-Hand Watch Works

How do you read the time on a 1-hand watch? It takes a bit of getting used to, but it's actually quite easy. The hours are clearly marked on the dial of the watch. Between each hour are large dashes that indicate the quarter hours, and the smaller dashes in between represent five-minute periods. The hand moves smoothly along these marks and accurately indicates the time. It takes some getting used to, but soon you will be able to read the time effortlessly.
