A power reserve indicates the power remaining within the mechanical movement of a watch, from fully wound to when it comes to a stop. A power reserve of 38 hours, for example, will continue to tell the time for 32 hours before stopping.A power reserve indicator showing the amount of time remaining is sometimes shown as a sub-dial on the main dial of the watch.

Fold-over Push Button
An open or transparent caseback features on the reverse of a watch and allows the wearer to see intricate details of the mechanism. It is a chance for the watch brand to show off the movement, which can often be decorated for added effect. A transparent caseback can be fully open, have a skeletonised window or cut-out shape.
The origin of a watch is where it has been assembled. Many watch brands are Swiss-made but there are a number of brands that originate from other countries, for example U-Boat is made in Italy and Bremont is made in England. Some watch brands will use Swiss-made parts, such as the movement, but the watch will be assembled elsewhere.
