General
Typ: Chronograph
A chronograph is a stop watch. Most wristwatches that incorporate a stop watch are also called chronographs, but this is just because it sounds more fashionable, in reality they are still wrist watches that incorporate a chronograph. The word chronograph comes from the ancient Greek word “chronos”, meaning time and “graphein”, to write. So in effect it’s a time-writer. Chronographs are not to be mixed up with chronometers. They are something completely different, which will be explained in the bit about…

Glass: Sapphire
The most robust watch crystals are made out of sapphire glass. Only diamonds and carbide is harder and can scratch sapphire glass. Of course there are other materials such as some metals and stones which will scratch your sapphire glass crystal, so it is not wise to expect the watch to handle any abuse without getting marked. Sapphire has one downside though, it is highly reflective. Some watches receive an anti-glare coating to compensate for this, but sadly this coating is less hard and will scratch more easily.

Radiocontrol
Radio controlled watches and clocks are timepieces that are able to receive a radio transmitted time signal and set themselves to it. They are what you and me can use to benefit from these incredibly exact atomic clocks out there. There are many different time signals, most countries have their own, so lets get technical: There is the MSF signal, also known as “Rugby Clock”, which broadcasts at a frequency of 60 kHz from the Anthorn radio station in Cumbria at a signal strength of 17 kW. The effective range is approx. 1000 km, so it will be received throughout the UK and western Europe. There are three atomic clocks on site, operated by the National Physical Laboratory. The information in the signal includes the UTC (former GMT) year, month, day of month, day of week, hour, minute, British Summer Time. The other commonly used radio time signal broadcast in Europe is the DCF77. This is broadcast from Mainflingen, near Frankfurt/Germany. So it is placed pretty centrally in Europe. It is transmitted at 77.5 kHz with a relatively high power of 50 kW, which means it has an effective range of 2000+ km. The signal contains pretty much the same information that the UK MSF signal does, but in UTC+1 (or CET). It is widely used in Europe because of its strength and centrally located broadcasting station. It is also quite popular in the UK, as almost all radio controlled watches can be set to a different time zone. This means they will still receive the DCF77 signal, but then add or subtract the amount of hours according to which time zone they have been set to.
There are multi-frequency watches available. These watches will be able to receive different time signals on different frequencies. Apart from the UK’s MSF and the European DCF77, the most common ones are the US WWVB (60 kHz) and the Japanese JJY (40 kHz and 60 kHz).
It is very important to know that the radio signal and the reception thereof is subject to various conditions. Apart from the fact that the signal does not mix that well with thick concrete and steel buildings, the time of day and the weather play a huge role. Rain will lower the range, but the signal will bounce off clouds, amplifying it a bit. The signal can travel further at nights and even the time of year and the position of the moon can have a slight impact. It has happened, that radio controlled clocks in eastern Canada set themselves regularly to the German DFC77 signal. It can also happen that you will have problems receiving the signal in the middle of England. Most commonly it is a too weak battery, but you could live in a valley or behind a mountain or just a massive building. If you are having problems receiving a radio signal, place it on the windowsill over night, preferably in the direction of the broadcasting station which signal you are trying to receive. If this does not work, turning the watch by 45° might do the trick. Sounds like a lot of witchcraft? Well, radio controlled watches are a lot more technical and tricky than normal ones. A perfect every-day reception is by no way guaranteed by the manufacturers. And it is not really required as the watches only use the signal to set their highly accurate quartz movements. Unless you calculate time in milliseconds, a couple of days without a signal will pass unnoticed.

Perpetual calendar
A perpetual calendar is a calendar that will give you the day of the week at any date in any year. So it would tell you for example that January the 11th in 2023 is a Wednesday. This works because the only part of the day and date never repeats itself: the year. Days, weeks, months all keep repeating themselves throughout their cycle. This can be used to fit a calendar into a watch that will continue to proceed through these cycles and never run out. Plus it gives you the day of the week.

Waterproof
Water tightness or impermeability, surprisingly enough, is the degree to which you can expose your watch to the element water. A watch can be water repellent to a variety of degrees, from surviving the odd splash, to keeping the watch fully functioning long after your crushed body has hit the ocean floor. Please note that these are always theoretical values. Water behaves very differently at different temperatures and with varying salinity. So we took our crayons and made you this rough guide (which, by the way, is in no way legally binding and we will not be held accountable for your watch if you ruin it):

Manchmal ist die Ablesbarkeit nicht so gut: Die Zahlen glänzen und können daher je nach Umgebungslicht auch unscheinbar dunkel werden. Das Datum ist sehr klein unter dem Datumsfensterchen. Die Zeiger werden vom Auge auch nicht so leicht erfasst, weil sie nur eine Teilfüllung besitzen. Die Leuchtzeiger leuchten nur sehr kurz - schlechtes floureszierendes Material.

Ich war das immer wiederkehrende und meiner Meinung nach viel zu teure Batteriewechseln satt und habe mir deshalb diese solarbetriebene Uhr zugelegt. Endlich kein Batteriewechsel mehr nötig! Und da die Uhr auch noch funkgesteuert ist erspart man sich auch das Einstellen der Uhrzeit und des Datums. Alles vorhanden von Datumsanzeige mit Wochentagen und ewigen Kalender, über eine Stoppuhr, leuchtende Zeiger, ein kratzfestes Glas und ganze 200m wasserdicht ist die Uhr auch noch. Es lässt sich sogar eine andere Uhrzeit anzeigen irgendwo auf der Welt. (z.B. New York City, London, Tokio oder Sydney). Ladezustand der Batterie oder Funkempfang lässt sich auch überprüfen, so gibt es nie böse Überraschungen. Ich kann aber sagen der Empfang im Haus ist ebenso gewährleistet, wie ausreichende Energiezufuhr ohne, daß man die Uhr extra in die Sonne legen muß.
Die Verarbeitung der Uhr ist topp und optisch hat sie meiner Meinung nach einen kleinen Vintage-Touch, der mir sehr gut gefällt. Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, daß die

Eine wirklich sehr elegante und wertige Uhr. Sie sieht sehr wertig aus und lässt sich gut am Handgelenk tragen. Das Ziffernblatt lässt sich sehr gut ablesen. Das Armband ist geschmeidig und fühlt sich sehr angenehm auf der Haut an. Der Kauf lief sehr unkompliziert ab und die Lieferung erfolgte sehr schnell.
