For beginners, the similar function of both the chronograph and regular watches is to tell the time. Chronograph is a bit ahead of a regular watch because it can also calculate relative time by itself.

If you find a watch having two small dials, symbolizes it as a chronograph. The critical difference that calls a watch a chronograph is its second hand that consistently works independent of the time-displaying function.


The chronograph internal mechanism has a different system that operates differently than a regular watch.


How Does a Chronograph Watch Work?

A chronograph watch operates with three buttons attached around the dial called the pusher.


You will find a start pusher that activates the chronograph function, a stop pusher used to stop the reading, and a reset pusher used when you want to reset the recordings.


The upper pusher is the start and stops button, and the lower button resets the chronograph function.
