Where on the watch do you measure to find the Lignes
I don't work on watches.
A ligne is one twelfth of an old French inch, and is equal to 2.256 mm or 0.0888 inch, (written as 19''' for instance). Watch movements are usually measured as the diameter of the dial plate.
Tea, you use your line guage and measure from where the stem goes into the pillar plate and directly across, or easy way to remember from the 9 o clock to the 3 o clock, good luck
You take the watch apart & measure across the dial diameter.
Or if you know what the pillar plate is, Measure from there to some where near the # 9 is.
The pillar plate on a watch is the same as the front plate on a clock; it's where the dial is attached. Just measure across from the 3 to the 9, or the 6 to the 12, or whichever pair of opposite numbers is convenient.
Thank you all so much.
Like I said I don't work on watches and I don't want to in the future either.
I just wanted to know a little about them.
And I was stuck on where to measure.
Thank you again.
