The specific type of watch known as a “chronograph,” which dates back to 1821, is easily recognizable by the three subdials (known as “totalizers” or “registers”) embedded in the watch face. Popular among sports enthusiasts, chronographs function as a stopwatch in addition to displaying the time. By virtue of pushing a button on the side of the watch case, users are able to begin measuring lap times and other time-specific events; a second push of the same button (or nearby button) stops the time. The subdials on the watch face display the seconds, minutes, and hours. While quartz chronographs can measure events down to THE CHRONOGRAPH 1/10 of a second, their automatic counterparts may be as accurate as 1/5 of a second. It’s about time!
