Considered by many watch collectors to be the most alluring horological style by far, men’s chronograph watches have a rich and interesting history – and they’re also very practical. Used by racing car drivers, astronauts and scientists throughout the last century, and now loved by everyone, chronographs allow you to start and stop time at the press of a button.
The Benefits of a Chronograph Watch
So what actually is a chronograph? A chronograph, in the simplest terms possible, is the technical word for a stopwatch or timer. Most chronograph timepieces, such as our Chronus and Pilot collections, feature between one and three buttons, which start, stop and reset the chronograph function. They’re commonly seen on the wrists of racing car drivers and during other activities where accuracy and precision are vital.
