The Chinese word 手表 means “wristwatch” in English. It is a compound word made up of the characters 手, which means “hand”, and 表, which means “watch” or “clock”. 手表 is commonly used in everyday conversation to refer to a timepiece worn on the wrist, whether it is a digital or analog watch. It is an essential accessory for many people, and its functions go beyond telling time, as many modern watches also have features such as alarms, timers, and fitness tracking.
