Opinions are divided when it come to defining what makes a watch complication. The usual definition is that any indication beyond hours, minutes and seconds is a complication. However, automatic winding mechanisms or devices for cancelling out rate disparities in vertical positions, such as the tourbillon and the carrousel, should also be included, even though they don’t display an indication.
This section contains information on the practicality, workings and technical challenges of watch complications.
