Non-luxury Watch Consumption: Hour Meter · Timing

The most difficult thing to calculate in the world is time. But the word timepiece reveals people’s ambitions: not only recording time, but also counting time. Therefore, people do not hesitate to use complicated calculations to create a practical chronograph by hand. Insiders said: ‘The enthusiasm of major brands for chronographs reflects the return of Swiss fine watchmaking to practicality.’ For watch lovers, the powerful functions of chronographs have given them one after another. One good reason.
Deep into the consciousness of the chronograph
本地 A local cultural celebrity brother said to me that a person’s wealth has three components: material wealth, spiritual wealth, and controllable time. It’s a little bit lower, at least you can control the time of one and a half laps on your wrist.
When you run, you can calculate how long it took you to run around the community. When you drive, you can accurately calculate the average speed or set reminder time before the appointment … these are chronographs The interesting and practical functions are often put on the table to talk about, although not everyone with a chronograph likes to make calculations everywhere. In fact, will people who like chronographs have such a subconscious mind? Because it has real controllability, between the one-click and one-push, reading, and zeroing between you and the watch, you have an interaction with the watch and have a response, because you participated in the flow of time and broke through the gear machinery Working icy attributes. Is this nothing more than a manifestation of one’s desire to control time?
Some literary theories are that if photography is the art of freezing for a while, chronograph is the art of freezing for a period of time. It is said that the English chronograph ‘chronograph’ was originally composed of the ancient Greek chronos (time) and graph (writing). What you have done during this time, and thus the fluidity over time is documented.
Traditional chronographs usually have a large dial with three small ‘sub-dials’ (the chronograph minute hand, chronograph hour hand, and small second hand). Of course, there are now many new display methods. For example, the hour and minute chronograph circles are integrated in a sub-dial, or the ornamental functions such as tourbillon, moon phases, and perpetual calendar are integrated into the chronograph.
