All clocks and watches that do not have a sound mechanism, even those complicated such as perpetual calendar, tourbillon, and time, can only be called ‘SimpleWatch’ (simple watch). This theory sounds strange at first glance, but it also makes sense when you think about it: once the clock has a sound, it is another world of gloom and glory, and the flat visual art has since turned into a three-dimensional hearing category. Feelings, indeed, are not comparable to those of the ‘SimpleWatch’, whose skills are only at the visual level.
