Did you know that Rolex watches work high in the sky and even in the far depths underwater? In 1953, the Edmund Hillary expedition reached the top of Mount Everest. Each participant wore a Rolex wristwatch. Despite the humidity and the temperature drop, the watch did not lose a second. In 1960, an American submarine with explorers sank to a depth of 35,798 feet below sea level. As an experiment, the Rolex watch was attached to the outside of the boat, and even at such a great depth, it continued to work steadily and accurately showed the time.

When choosing a steampunk watch, you need to choose which numerals will be on the dial: Roman or Arabic.
What is the difference between a quartz watch and a mechanical watch? What are their features? The quartz watch runs on batteries. It uses an electronic quartz oscillator that controls time. Mechanical watches use gears and springs. They work together and thus produce the energy for the clock to work. Mechanical watches have 2 types of clock winding: automatic and manual. In the case of the automatic type, the energy there is obtained from the movement of the hand while walking. The manual mechanism needs to be powered by winding the crown every 24-48 hours. If you are a fan of all mechanical things, then mechanical steampunk watches suit you more, that way you can observe all mechanical processes inside.
Quartz watches are cheaper and stronger than mechanical watches. As for accuracy, quartz watches also benefit from this parameter. Mechanical watches can lag by a second a day, even if it is some popular brand, like Philippe Patek, Rolex, Seiko, and others. Every 5 years, it is better to show a mechanical watch to a master, so that he checks the work of the gears and springs. Quartz watches need to replace the battery every 2 years.
Why does a quartz watch tell the time more accurately? Quartz is a natural stone, it has electromagnetic properties inside. Every second, it emits pulses of current, which help to accurately determine and save the countdown.
Interesting feature: Why the number 4 on the watch could be written as IIII instead of IV? Here we need to examine in more detail the additive principle of the Roman system of calculus: 1 = I, 2 = II, 3 = III, 4 = IIII, 5 = V, 9 = VIIII, and so on. This principle is called the subtraction principle (4 = IV, 9 = IX). It appeared during the Imperial period. Both systems were actively used in ancient times and replaced each other. Only in the XV century, the system of subtraction became widespread, but this does not apply to the dial. Aesthetics also plays an important role here. The use of the numeral IIII divides the dial into three groups of 4 digits: Group I (I, II, III, III, IIII), Group V (V, VI, VII, VIII), and Group X (IX, X, XI, XII). And if you look from the point of view of symmetry, it also brings a certain balance to the overall appearance of the dial.
