Prisma Multifunction Watch Family
It’s understandable that some people call a multifunction watch a chronograph. There are some similarities between the two and they can have the same style. Because of this, a multifunction watch is often called a ‘chrono’. Just like the chronograph, a multifunction watch has some extra dials, which give the watch an impressive look. The difference between the two types is the function of their indicators, as a multifunction does not have a timer. Instead, it often shows the day of the week, the date and the hour of the day. Sometimes, a multifunction watch has only one or two indicators. Check out the whole Prisma multifunction watch family below.

Chronograph Watches Explanation
A chronograph is a watch with advanced options. It has 3 separated dials besides the date. This functions as a stopwatch. Most chronographs registers time up to 30 or 60 minutes, but there are versions that can measure time up to 24 hours. With the pushers on the side of the watch, you can easily start, pause and reset the timer. As soon as the timer is activated, it starts counting the seconds. After every minute, the hand that shows the passed minutes will move. This system works individually and does not affect the normal time display. In addition to this practical function, these small dials give the watch a strong and bold appearance.
Difference with a Chronometer
The chronograph watch is often confused with the term chronometer. However, a chronometer is an indication of a watch that meets precise and specific standards and is COSC-certified. It is a standard for a watch which is able to measure time really precise. So it is possible that chronograph watches are chronometers, but it doesn’t have to be the other way around.
A lot of chronographs come with a tachymeter. A tachymeter is a fixed bezel you can use to calculate the speed of a moving object or vehicle. If you know that the distance between point A and point B is excactly a kilometer or a mile, you can compute the speed by activating the timer. It may not be something you need in your daily life, but it is a nice and interesting tool. How does a Tachymeter work? Activate the timer when the vehicle starts. When point B is reached, stop the timer, and look at the second hand. It points to the tachymeter and shows the speed of the moving object. The Chronograph watches like the Explorer Navigator below have this feature.
