These are actually not very new features since they have already been included in the earliest models produced in the 17th century. These subdials actually have functions, and they vary.
• Subdial with 60 counts the seconds that pass by
• Subdial with 30 gives the time that has elapsed in 30-minute intervals. One complete revolution on this subdial means 30 minutes have elapsed.
• Subdial with 12 measures 12-hour loops and are often used by law enforcers
• Subdial with 10 measures one-tenth of a second. One revolution means one second has elapsed. This subdial is particularly useful to sports events where split-second measurements are very important.
• Other subdials can indicate dual time zones, alarm, or phase of the moon. There are also subdials that have monthly or yearly date indicators.

Some watches have the ability to glow in the dark so that the wearer can still keep track of time in total darkness. Some can glow for 25 years through the Tritium paint technology that can glow even in very low-lit or dark areas.
