Interpreting The Mysteries Of Time

Perpetual calendar is one of the traditional complex functions in the watchmaking world. Its appearance is a brand new course for the watchmaking world and realizes another possibility of watchmaking. The perpetual calendar function is more accurate and needs to be adjusted only once in 2100. For mechanical timepieces, the ability to judge and identify complex calendars through clever mechanical structures is a huge challenge for watchmakers.
