Dizzy from the abundance of counters? Don’t panic! In this article, we will analyze in detail what a chronograph is in a wristwatch, how to use it and who needs it.
The chronograph is the most popular additional function in watches, measuring short periods of time. The central second hand turns into a stopwatch, while the regular second hand is hiding in one of the small counters. We will tell you more about counters a little later.
Two concepts are often confused: chronograph and chronometer. Once upon a time, any watch was called chronometers, but now chronometers are considered to be a class of particularly accurate watches that have passed a number of tests and received the appropriate certificate (the most famous is the Swiss COSC).
How can we determine externally that we have a chronograph in front of us? Classic chronographs have two pushers on the sides of the crown and 3 additional counters on the dial.
In some models, there may be one button (or the crown itself plays the role of the button), and the counters – two or even four in a row.
What is a chronograph for – to use it for its intended purpose or just for beauty? Let’s take a look at different types of chronographs so as not to get confused.
Movement type: mechanical and quartz chronographs.
Quartz chronographs are easier to operate and more accurate in readings. But mechanical chronographs are often prettier. In the pre-quartz era, they won the hearts of horse racing lovers (though in the 19th century they were not wrist ones, but table ones). Just imagine: the second hand not only kept track of the time that the horse ran, but literally wrote down the readings (put an ink dot next to the number). Hence the Greek name for the function: chronos „time” grapho „to write.” Of course, modern chronographs do not write anything, but they show excellently, and not only seconds.

Precision: standard and ultra-precise chronographs.
Standard chronographs measure time to the nearest 1 or 1/20 of a second. But for some brands, record-breaking chronographs are able to measure with an accuracy of 1 / 1000th of a second. Of course, in everyday life there is no need for such precision, however, they are professional chronographs in order to benefit professionals – for example, coaches who prepare their champions for competitions.
By style: sports and classic chronographs.
The chronograph was originally a sport function. With the advent of quartz and electronic watches, the hand gave way to liquid crystal screens. In terms of convenience, sporty chronograph wristwatches outperform exquisite classics. But the classics often bypasses sports models in the category „style and beauty”.
We will not bore you with long excerpts from the instructions, but we will outline the most important points regarding the operation and setting of chronograph watches.
