The 7 best chronographs in the watch industry
Are you looking for a chronograph with an in-house caliber or are you looking for the most precise and high-profile accessory? In any case, in today's list you will find something interesting just for yourself.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Anti-Magnetic Chronograph is one of the most advanced and reliable universal chronographs on the market, plus a diver's watch. Its 45,5mm case is made of steel, titanium or Sedna gold and can withstand immersion up to 600 meters. The ceramic bezel is reliably protected from scratches, and the transparent case back allows you to enjoy the view of the ultra-modern anti-magnetic automatic caliber 9900. Its unusual feature in the absence of an inner case made of soft iron - the use of only anti-magnetic components in the movement made it unnecessary.
Practical and equally beautiful, the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Auf / Ab chronograph is equipped with a variety of indicators: time, elapsed time, date, power reserve and tachometer - while the brand's designers have managed to avoid overloading the dial. The watch offers all the benefits of a Glashütte movement, including a flyback function and a 60-hour power reserve. The 41 mm case is made of platinum and contains the hand-wound caliber L.951.1 inside.
A version of the chronometer in a more daring modern style was presented by the Hublot brand in the Big Bang Unico Titanium model. The watch has a useful flyback function, a three-day power reserve, water resistance up to 100 meters and a convenient quick-change system. But the most important feature of the bestselling Hublot is a modern high-tech look, a composite case and a skeletonized dial combined with a fluted rubber strap. Inside the imposing 45mm case is the automatic HUB1242 Unico caliber.
The now 65-year-old Breitling Navitimer features a round bezel with a linear scale that can be used to calculate important flight data such as fuel consumption. From a watchmaking standpoint, this legendary chronograph has stood out from the crowd for many years with its signature caliber with high-quality column-wheel steering and a 70-hour power reserve. A blue version with a second time zone is now available - Breitling Navitimer GMT Aurora Blue. The powerful 48 mm steel case houses the automatic caliber B04.
Another legendary chronograph, this time inspired by auto racing, has been updated to the delight of all fans - the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. In addition to the changes on the dial, the ceramic bezel is an important innovation, protecting the once sensitive tachymeter scale from scratches. Inside the 40mm steel case ticks the acclaimed automatic caliber 4130 with a three-day power reserve and a spring made of non-magnetic and shock-resistant Parachrom material.
Patek Philippe couldn't help but appear on this list with its Ref. 5170, introduced in 2010. Inside the watch, the hand-winding caliber CH 29-535 PS is the first non-functional chronograph movement from Patek Philippe to be launched on the mass market. Ref. The 5170 is available in a 39,4mm case in yellow, white or rose gold with a silver or black dial. The darker model is still the most attractive and adds a sporty chic to the overall look of the accessory.
Also well known to longtime fans of the watch industry, the Zenith El Primero 36,000 VPH Classic Cars chronograph is attractive both for its original tricolor design of subdials and impressive accuracy: its balanced frequency allows measurements to be made with an accuracy of 1 / 10th of a second. Inside the 42 mm steel case is the legendary automatic El Primero 400 caliber, the world's first automatic chronograph caliber, introduced to the world in January 1969.
