Montre-bracelet régulateur malte dual time

A Clock with non-coaxial hour and minute hands.

The size of the hands and their position reflect their importance: the minute hand is always the larger and is positioned in the centre of the dial.

Observatories and Manufactures once referred to highly precise regulators, also known as parent clocks, to set their watches to time.
