A recent attempt to revive them in Concours de Chronometrie was hampered by a small number of participants. Although certified accuracy is no longer in fashion, healthy competition seems to be coming in waves in other areas.Omega Aqua Terra Replica Watches It is thinness that is currently threatening records, but just a few years ago, chronograph frequency was the focus of attention with increasing claims of accuracy.

Frequency is a measure of how well the escapement cuts up time for Cartier Ballon Bleu fake Watches the chronograph seconds hand. Speedmasters with 321 calibers beat at 2.5 Hz. This is equivalent to 0.2 seconds per beat. The calibers of the early 7750 ran at 3 Hz, with each beat being a very awkward 0.167 of an second.

To give you greater precision, the Nonius included an extra gauge at the tip of its chronograph seconds hand.

Longines created a unique way to ensure chronograph accuracy in the 1960s. The Nonius watch was named after the additional gauge that was attached to the chronograph seconds hand. This allowed for greater accuracy in reading timing results.Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica Watches To confuse matters, the term "nonius" was used in English to refer to a Vernier scale.
