The hour markers or indices that feature on the dial of a timepiece can transform its look in an instant. After all, the face of a timepiece is its window to the world and reflects the chosen personality of the brand, and consequently that of the wearer.

For those watch enthusiasts with a keen eye for detail, the indices will have been recognized and approved in the blink of an eye. Arabic style numerals are often found on dress watches and are sophisticated in style, round hour markers, often seen on sports watches, are renowned for their legibility, batons and sticks range in width according to whether the model has a sporty or refined personality and Roman numerals are recognized on more dressy watch brands. Notably, different luxury watch brands adopt specific indices. For example, Cartier typically uses Roman numerals and Breguet is renowned for its use of Arabic numerals. But if you’re looking for a timepiece that adds that extra subtle sparkle to your wrist, the diamond dot hour marker delivers that elevated sophistication and many brands have embraced this feature.
