Re: YES -- it's a chronograph (and very nice one)!


Interesting...Thanks! You can probably guess my next the watch a chronometer? If others of the same make/model/time frame are, I guess mine would be too, but as the term is very specific...I should wait to hear what others think.

Thank you,

: The customary definition is that a chronograph
: measures time of day (like a normal watch)
: and also has an independently operating
: stopwatch / timer -- usually with a capacity
: of between 30 minutes or 12 hours.

: Sort of like old scotty -- he is a racing boat,
: but there may not be any actual tag or label
: on him that says "racing boat".

: It gets a little more complicated with the
: definition of "chronometer", which
: signifies a normal watch (that measures time
: of day) certified to operate within stated
: tolerances . . . I think that's the
: definition.

: Perhaps others will have additional information
: about your chronograph. At some point --
: soon -- I need to add these pilots watches
: to the chronograph section of OnTheDash.
