The watch that came into being under the design is the current small three-pin style.
The popularity of the small three hands continued until the appearance of watches. As the dial became more and more compact, some problems that did not exist on the large dial began to appear. For example, the watch was not easy to read because the dial was too small. People began to realize that Now, you should invent a bigger second hand.
