Wrist Scan for Friday 16th is Open Now! : Time for Chronographs!!

Oct 15, 2020,20:32 PM

Hello dear Friends!

As announced last Wednesday I have the pleasure to be your host this week end and our Theme invites to share your favorite chronographs.

Since my beginnings as a watch collector I felt fascinated by chronographs. I found and still find viewing their dials with different scales and sub dials and their several hands working mesmerizing. 

Chronographs were original intended as a working tool in many areas: engineering, military, medical, sports, etc.. and they are currently replaced by other more modern or technological instruments but for present days watch aficionados it keeps being a wonderful complication which allows interacting or playing with them and bring a lot of enjoyment.

In my personal case I only use them to control the exact 3 minutes and a half I prefer for boiled eggs but anyway I can’t resist starting and resetting their  hands and viewing their workings whenever I wear a chrono on my wrist.

So, please share your favorite chronographs and tell us a few words about them. Show us their movements if it is possible, as movements are also pieces of art which give us so much joy and satisfaction.

Of course if you donΒ΄t own a chronograph in your collection you are invited to participate with the watch youΒ΄ll be wearing along the week end.

As usual we will have three categories to be judged: Best Wrist Shot, Best Static shot and Best watch of the week (to be chosen among watches submitted along the week end).

You may begin posting in this same thread now!
Have a beautiful and safe weekend my dear watch loving friends!!
Cheers! Abel

PS : I share below some favorite chronos from my collection to open Time for Chronographs!!

IMO You are a winner with your Mare Nostrum and your H. Moser, I like them both

 By: PoyFR : October 18th, 2020-05:41
But I am not much into Chronograph even if some are irresistible like those 2 HAGS ;-)

A weakness for vintage chronographs, esp those with 2 subdials

 By: NT931 : October 15th, 2020-22:25
I don’t have many chronographs in my collection, but those I have are mainly manual-wound, and vintage. I’m fond of the two-subdial layout, it just seems better balanced to me. (And Abel, you have an amazingly diverse collection of Chronos!) ...  

Great submission NT931 !! Three superb chronos...

 By: Subexplorer : October 16th, 2020-05:31
... you share wiih us. Agree that two sub dial configuration makes for a cleaner and more balanced layout of dial. Thank you for your kind comments about my collection!! Hagwe! Abel

Vintage crono heaven !

 By: hs111 : October 16th, 2020-01:58
Although I’ve seen the 2nd input ( sterile dial), I didn’t recall the brand . - clean, almost austere face. Then the amazing Longines, the blue Montblanc - where to stop with my awes !? - Also really love that georgeous Lemania with that colorated dial ! ... 

I share your thought and feelings dear HS!!

One per decade...

 By: VinnieD : October 17th, 2020-03:37
Chronographs represent a very important complication. Many youngsters are rightly fascinated by the ability to measure time and interact with the watch movement. One of my first watches reflected that, when I was around 10 years old: Swatch Black Friday (...  

Thnak you for your contribution Vinnie!! Agree with you...

 By: Subexplorer : October 17th, 2020-05:25
...that chronographs represent an interesting complication. Interesting to view each of your nice chronos represent a decade in your life and that you ate already planning your fourth decade with flying colors! Thank you for sharing!! Hagwe! Abel

Thank you - this is why I chose it, thinking very long term about its classic appeal

 By: VinnieD : October 18th, 2020-02:10
however, I forgot to take the legibility of the dial into account. I will need to search for blued hands at some point as the dial is quite monochromatic. AP does not really distribute their spare parts widely to say the least
