A dependable, Swiss-made ETA 2386-2 mechanical movement typically powers three-hand models, while the chronographs utilize the venerable ETA Valjoux 7750 movement with a 42-hour power reserve. Each of these professional timing tools has been engineered to provide a lifetime of reliable service. Chronograph models include 30-minute and 12-hour sub-dials for timing events, as well as a small seconds display at 6 o’clock. The versatile chronograph dial has a big date window at 3 o’clock and a tachymeter scale inscribed around the chapter ring. Most three-hand models also include a convenient big date display.
