Before the electronic chronograph appeared, people could only rely on mechanical chronographs to perform all timekeeping activities, so this type of watch does not seem to have much to do with people’s daily life. Now it has become a fashion on everyone’s wrist. I think the important reason is that the chronograph brings the interaction between people and watches to the greatest extent, and it feels so wonderful. When we play with our stopwatch, start, stop, and return to zero, not only the crisp sounds, smart hands, but also the infinite charm of precision machinery are revealed in our fingers. In addition, as humans enter the digital era, the artistic value of mechanical chronographs as a unique clock technology has greatly increased. Whether it is a collection or an introduction to complex watches, chronographs are a good choice.
