All About Chronograph Watches

Did you know that the chronograph watch is over 200 years old? Louis Moinet, a French horologist and artist, invented the chronograph in 1816 to track celestial objects.

From there, chronographs were on-trend in the mid-to-late 1800s in field artillery. Today, current uses of the chronograph extend to such fields as auto racing, aircraft piloting, and submarine maneuvering and diving. It began as a simple pocket watch with astronomical purpose and remains a timeless piece of both fashion and innovation. While many purchase chronograph watches for their usefulness, others buy them simply because they are stylish.
