Complicated Craftsmanship Dual Chronograph Chronograph Five Recommended Dual Chronograph Watches

What is dual chase time? Today, I will give you a brief introduction to what is called double tracking. The double tracking hand was invented by Mr. Adolphe Nicole in the 19th century, that is, it can be counted twice without returning to zero. As the name suggests, the double-tracking hand has two chronograph seconds hands. Under normal timing, the two hands are overlapped and displayed. When the second stop is recorded for the first time, one hand stops, one hand continues to count, and another chronograph hand stops the second record. Stop. Then the chronograph hand that stopped first quickly caught up with the one that stopped later, and the two hands still coincided and returned to zero at the same time. Simply put, it is that the two chronograph hands can move synchronously, but stop separately. It seems that there is an interest in the two hands chasing each other. The effect is that two target times that start at the same time but are different can be calculated separately. Today I would like to recommend several dual-tracing watches.

Lange DOUBLESPLIT watch series 404.032 rose gold watch

Watch Series: DOUBLESPLIT
Movement type: manual machinery
Case material: 18K rose gold
Strap Material: Crocodile Leather
Case diameter: 43 mm
European quote: € 97,800
Watch details: lange / 10414 /
Brief Comment on the Watch: The Lange watch can be regarded as the leader in the double-tracking chronograph field. Among them, the 404.032 double-tracking chronograph introduced a few years ago is not only equipped with an accurate jumping minute plate, but also has the function of eliminating friction and disengaging. The ‘double’ double-tracking hand can also be called ‘minute-second’ double-chasing. The principle is that while the chronograph second hand rotates once, the pointer on the integrating disk jumps forward one space to continue timing. This solves the limitation of the traditional chronograph that cannot exceed 60 seconds. The chronograph range of this Lange watch can reach 30 minutes.

Blancpain Léman 6080-3442-55B watch

Case material: 950 platinum

Watch details: blancpain / 15149 /
Watch brief comment: Due to the complexity of the dual chase chronograph, only a few top brand watches have dual chase chronographs. This Blancpain Lakeman double chase chronograph watch is made of precious metal 950 platinum. The top hand is the second hand and the bottom hand is the chronograph second hand. When the chronograph button is pressed for the first time, the chronograph starts, and the two seconds hands start simultaneously. When the chronograph second hand is running normally, the chase second hand can be stopped, restarted or reset to zero. When the chase hand stops and the chronograph second hand runs for a period of time alone, press the chase hand button, the chase hand will quickly ‘catches’ to the front chronograph second hand and continue to run synchronously.

Reset of readings.

Summary: The double-tracing chronograph has always been the ultimate technology representing chronographs, and its price is unattainable. Due to the complicated structure, it is generally acknowledged that it is more difficult to manufacture than the tourbillon, which is comparable to the three-question technology. This is the reason why only a few watch brands have launched dual chronograph watches.
