CHRONOGRAPH WATCHES

When it comes to the finest chronograph timepieces, Swiss craftsmanship takes the lead. At Hamilton, we take pride in our chronograph legacy, for it was our pivotal role in pioneering the world's very first automatic chronograph movement in 1969 that sets us apart. Since the introduction of the renowned vintage chronograph watch, we've continued to innovate, crafting chronographs for both men and women across our bestselling collections.


WHAT IS A CHRONOGRAPH WATCH?


Let’s start with a chronograph watch definition: It's a type of watch designed with a specialized mechanism integrated into its movement, enabling it to measure elapsed time without affecting its primary function of telling time.

With its independent sweeping second hand and sub-dials, a chronograph watch allows you to initiate, pause, and reset timing functions using pushers located both above and below the crown.

WHAT ARE THE FUNCTIONS OF CHRONOGRAPH SUB DIALS?


Chronograph watches commonly include sub-dials, also known as 'registers.' In traditional chronograph watches, you'll typically find three of them. These sub-dials individually track the elapsed seconds, minutes, and hours from the moment you activate the stopwatch until you stop it.

In addition to its primary stopwatch function, numerous chronograph watches incorporate a tachymeter scale. This scale is either engraved or printed on the watch's bezel. It enables you to convert elapsed time into speed, providing a quick and convenient way to calculate velocity and distance based on the displayed figures.
