Fregarder WMontre (horlogerie)
  • Une montre est un instrument de mesure du temps qui se porte sur soi.

  • « Boîte vitrée dans laquelle les orfèvres et les bijoutiers mettent leurs marchandises, afin qu'on les voie sans pouvoir y toucher. »
  • « Platine qui indique les heures dans une horloge. Les horloges dans les églises avaient des montres dedans et dehors. » Aujourd’hui, l’objet que désigne cette deuxième définition est le cadran.
