A chronograph watch is based at its most basic level a stopwatch function that records time elapsed, combined with a display. The basic model has a sweep second hand it is started and stopped by either additional buttons or can be operated from the stem. There are more complicated versions who have sub dials and independent hands to measure tenths of a second, seconds, minutes and hours and lunar cycles. Some versions also have moveable bezels as tachymeters for quick calculation of speed and distance. The chronograph invention is atributed by many to Louis Moinet to be used in tracking astronomical objects. Up to date uses are varied from piloting airplanes, car racing, sports.
