Chronometer Vs. Chronograph

Again and again, there are confusion about the terms “Chronometer” and “Chronograph”. Despite a similar start of the word, the two terms show completely different features of a watch, which are explained in more detail below.

Chronometer Vs. Chronograph

Chronometer: Watches with Special Precision

Originally, the concept of the Chronometer was based on instruments used in the maritime field to determine the exact position. This should be enabled by a high gait accuracy. Meanwhile, however, the term is also used outside the shipping industry.
An “official Chronometer” means watches, whose Swiss movements have passed a gait test of the independent observatory “COSC”. These wristwatches will then receive a gear shift and may carry the lettering Chronometer. In the luxury watch sector, this is the case, for example, withRolex, Omega and Breitling.

Chronograph: Watches with Stop Function

In the literal sense, the chronograph is a time recorder. Usually, the term is used in conjunction with wrist watches which have a stop function.Chronographs usually have two or three auxiliary dials on which short periods are measured without affecting the current time. Well-known examples of chronographs are the Omega Speedmaster  and the Rolex Daytona.
