Chronograph watch with pillar wheel, authentic chronograph

Newly developed chronograph


This model is equipped with a "precision jumping minute counter."

Previously, the chronograph second hand moved slowly to the next mark.

However, this also made it easier for misreadings to occur, which was a problem with mechanical chronographs.

The "Precision Jumping Minute Counter" has improved this.

After the chronograph second hand makes one revolution, the hand of the 30-minute counter does not jump slowly, but instantly.

This makes it possible to prevent misreadings, which was a problem.

A. Lange & Söhne Datograph

It is hand-wound and has a vibration frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour.

This is a chic model with an outside date.

This is a highly accurate watch that not only features a flyback mechanism, but also a precision jumping minute counter.

The price is 5.95 million yen.

The pillar wheel is back

A pillar wheel is a part that controls the movement of a mechanical chronograph.

It has a cylindrical shape.

This was previously a part found on almost all chronographs.

However, as manufacturers competed to reduce costs in order to mass-produce, pillar wheels gradually disappeared.

Currently, this can only be seen on some high-end models.

However, recently, pillar wheels are starting to show signs of a gradual revival.

This pillar wheel is used in chronographs developed in-house by manufacturers such as A. Lange & Söhne.

The pillar wheel is a part that can be said to be the symbol of a genuine chronograph.

This revival will no doubt be welcomed by many fans.

Girard-Perregaux Chronograph Vintage 1999

This chronograph features a square design.

This model is a successor to the "Vintage 1945" model.

Its vibration frequency is 28,800 vibrations per hour.

This watch is equipped with a custom-designed automatic movement and is priced at 1.7 million yen.


This movement is the smallest integrated movement in the world for an automatic chronograph.

The size is 23.3 mm in diameter and 6.28 mm in thickness.

By minimizing the movement, the range of designs has expanded greatly.

This led to the development of models such as square and ladies' models.

It can be said that this achievement is great.

Furthermore, it is an automatic chronograph movement with a manual winding mechanism.

It also features a calendar mechanism and boasts high precision, making it unshakable in its reliability.
