6 Chronographs that will make you want to start timing everything

Timing everything

If you weren’t timing things before, you certainly will now!

Of all the watch complications on the market, the chronograph is one of the most sought after. There are two main reasons for this. Firstly, it is a question of looks. The chronograph counters on the dial give it a seriously mechanical look that both new and seasoned collectors adore.

And secondly, the chronograph is one of the most practical watch functions that can be used to time anything from your egg in the morning to your favorite racing car driver flying around the track. At WatchDreamer, we are also big fans of the chronograph so we have compiled a few of our favorites to whet your appetite.
