Everything you need to know about Chronograph Watches
Chronograph Watches have always been a popular style choice for watch wearers since they were first introduced to the markets in 1821. The sub-dials visible in the watch face makes it easily distinguished from other watch types. This feature also lends a sporty feel to the look of the watch.
The word “Chronograph” which translated from its original Greek roots means “time writer”. It refers to the ancient practice of tracking time elapsed—in other words, using a stopwatch.
The main function of a Chronograph watch
The main function is that it allows the user to, start, stop, and reset a timer that functions independently of the watch’s main movement. The sub-dials on the chronograph also enable you keep track and make a comparison between the base time (Start time) and the time elapsing. The sub-dials in a typical chronograph usually indicate some or all of the following; hours, minutes, seconds, tenths of a second.
Chronograph watches are especially popular with professionals like Pilots, Athletes, Astronauts, Soldiers, Divers and Doctors for its reliable time tracking features. The chronograph is even used as simple tool for cooking in the kitchen.
The two knobs by its side control the time tracking features of a standard Chronograph. The knobs are used to activate, pause, or reset the movements of the three sub-dials.
Chronograph watches come in various styles and designs with anywhere from two to four sub-dials on the watch face. Each dial is used to track the time elapsed, it doesn’t matter if the task is big or small. From timing simple things like a bike or car ride to timing the minutes between contractions.
