What is the purpose of chronograph watches

Men's watches chronographs

Men's chronograph watches are among the most sought-after timepieces due to their elaborate construction and detailed look. It's difficult to ignore a watch that has so much to admire on its case and dial. What is a chronograph watch and why are they the choice of style conscious men around the world?

A chronograph watch is a watch with more than one function on the dial. These “sub-scales” can display anything from the day or month to secondary time zones. Chronographs can have a stopwatch function or can tell divers how much time they have left underwater. These extras and sub-dials can be adjusted to suit the purpose of the watch.

Our chronograph watches add a modern twist to any classic look. Men's chronograph watches typically have three sub-dials, but we mix them up with additional dial and pointer details that show this is not an off-the-shelf watch. This is a jointly developed, purpose-built chronograph from Nixon.

We make chronograph watches for men with stainless steel and leather straps. Which one you choose depends on your preferences and what you plan to do with your watch. Leather-strap chronographs offer upscale elegance, but a stainless steel strap is sophisticated and bold. You can wear your metal strap chronograph even in wet conditions, while water is a no-go for leather.

With this in mind, you can now start choosing the right men's chronograph watch. If you're looking for a statement timepiece, a chronograph is one of the most daring you can go for. Say it out loud with a Nixon.
