    Show your Chronos

    Here's my modest collection of chronographs. Just sold my Zenith Chronomaster Revival Shadow so down to 4 chronos.

    Due to my relatively puny 165mm wrist size I prefer to keep my watches no bigger than 40mm. Unfortunately a lot chronos that I would love to have wear too big on me.

    I don't have a particular favourite amongst that lot but I do tend to wear the Speedy most.

    Just sold my one and only chrono. But the IWC 3706 is one I’d like to have at some point.

    I quite like a mechanical chronograph - vintage of course!

    One of the Pro's has gone from this pic.

    The UG is very cool - roughly which year is it from?

    Like that silver dialed Seiko.

    I'll try and post mine tomorrow, I do love a chrono.

    Some really cool looking chronos here.

    Chronos are my favourite complication. I don't actually use the functionality very much anymore as I have my smartphone for those jobs but I just love the aesthetic of the multiple dials and pushers.

    I happily assembled these, took the photo, put them all away again and realised I missed one, my Hanhart LE was still on my wrist, and not in the photo. Doh!

    It's such an elegant design, looks in great condition too for something nearing 60.

    That Omega 'Big Blue' is gorgeous.

    I have a few chronographs, these two are probably my favourites of them all.

    That particular one is a 2018, but they were (re)released a few years earlier.

    The Big Blue and Autavia are both fantastic.
    I love the Big Blue, I spent a bit of time this morning looking for one for sale.
