Italian term or phrase: ghiera (di timer)
ghiera ruotando la quale si imposta il tempo
martini
English translation:timer setting ring; timer control
Explanation:
It's probably an outer ring or "bezel" with a knurled edge so you can turn it, but it could also be simply a "timer knob" as someone else suggested. If you can't see it, you might want to call it a "timer control" or "timer setting control".
All the best

adjusting collar; escutcheon;


Explanation:
not happy with what I can offer. The first is from Eurodicautom (entries there refer to other domains); the second one is from McGraw Hill Zanichelli Scientific-Tecnical Dictionary) and reads as follows: escutcheon = ghiera, borchia, mascherina. An ornamental shield, flange or border used around a dial... control knob or other panel-mounted part...
