Chronographs, Chronometers and Certifications

The three Cs: Chronograph, Chronometer and Certification are among the most discussed words in the horology industry but not always well understood by the broader public. In fact, the first two Cs are often confused – both words start with “chrono” which comes from Greek and means nothing more than “time”. However, the second part of the word is what makes the drastic difference in meaning. Chronometer, in fact, refers simply to the measure (Greek “metron”) of time (Greek “chrono”) and is used to identify watches with high accuracy. On the other hand, chronographs are part of the so called movements with complications and are intended to feature not only hours and minutes but also other measures (generally on secondary sub-dials). This means that a chronometer might be associated with a chronograph but this last might not necessarily be a chronometer. Finally “certification” generally applies to the chronometers and we will see specifically which one, how and why.
