The Ultimate Chronograph

Posted on February 3, 2010


Quick question: What is the difference between a ‘Time piece or Instrument’ and a ‘Watch’?

One is merely for telling the time, a feat that can also be achieved by gazing at the position of the sun. The other adds value, complements a power suit and ultimately makes a bold statement; I am here and I intend to take no prisoners’.  These time pieces are sometimes called icons, time instruments, horological excellence, instruments for professionals, the ultimate chronograph…

Whatever name you chose to call them, they leave no doubt about their purpose and their prospective audience. Time wasters [pun intended] need not apply
