The Abusive Chronograph

Matt Farah published on

The Chronograph complication is, to most of us, just a stopwatch. Second to a date indicator, the Chronograph is the next most popular complication, and nearly every watch manufacturer makes one - or do they? As we learn in this episode, the Chronograph is not only the most "abusive" complication, in terms of being harsh on the watch to use, but also one of the most complex complications, so much so that many of Switzerland's top watchmakers use Chronograph movements based on the same few designs. In this episode we look at all the major varieties of Chrongraphs, from entry-level Swiss brands like Baume and Mercier and BVLGARI, to the haute horological brilliance of in-house designs such as the $78,000 (on sale at C&C for just $43,000!) A. Lange & Sohne Datograph.
