The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features
Precision is the name of the game with the 8212 models. Since its imposing design does include extra features a jet pilot is thankful for, nubile watch aficionados might be intimidated by it. Thus, in order for you to take full advantage of the possibilities this particular design affords you, let's break down such features.
The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features a Chronograph
Do not let yourself get intimidated by the name chronograph, more colloquially known as 'stopwatch.' It's simply one very intuitive feature of watches that, although making it look more complex, makes its use surprisingly easier.
In simple terms, a chronograph is a type of watch with additional dials on its face used to more precisely keep track of elapsed time. It typically has two or three separate dials, one of which tracks minutes, another which tracks hour, and a third which may track seconds either continuously or in intervals.
You do this by using the chronograph's stopwatch function, which allows the user to time intervals or measure elapsed time.
To use a chronograph, start by pressing a button to activate the timer. Then begin timing whatever it is you are trying to measure. When finished, press the button again to stop the timer. The time elapsed remains displayed on the dials.
Chronographs often see use by athletes, surgeons, and, of course, pilots and other professionals who need to keep track of time intervals. They are also a feature of scientific experiments wherein measuring time is crucial. In short, the chronograph makes for a more precise measurement of time for professionals and, thus, surely will help you to keep track of it as well.
A Dash of a Fighter Jet Dashboard in Its Design
Reminiscent of a jet dashboard, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band features a chronograph on its clock face. More commonly referred to as 'those three little other circles,' a chronograph is another practical and visually appealing feature of more functional watches.
Each of the extra faces is there to display a different measure of chronological timekeeping with precision. You will almost always find one tiny clock face to display the sixty minutes that make up an hour. They are often displayed in wheel showing the numbers' 60', '20', and '40' clockwise from the top in that order. In order to differentiate it from the other faces of similar size, the minute' clockface does have concentric ripple-like circles within it.
Another one of its faces is, of course, all about charting the sixty seconds that make up a minute in order to track them. The clock face showcases the numbers' 60', '15', '30', and '45' spread out clockwise from the top. Also, the 'red hand' clearly pointing out how many seconds it passed.
Lastly, the final extra face of the trio that makes up the chronograph showcases the twenty-four hours of the day. Showcasing the numbers' 24', '6', '12', and '18' clockwise when looked from the top, the wheel instantly tells what hour of the day currently is. The design of clock hand that stands out very well from the rest of the design for easy tracking.
As a stylish little nod to the aforementioned jet dashboard design theme, in the hour displaying chronograph, there's a jetliner. The jetliner's nose, of course, acts as the arrow pointing to what hour of the day it is.
8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features a Tachymeter
A tachymeter is a tool used to measure the speed of an object, and it does this by measuring the time it took for said object to travel a certain distance. Said time measure can then go into use for calculating the speed of the object measured.
Tachymeters are a fairly common feature of watches; they are popular with race drives and also pilots, who use them to measure ground speeds during takeoff and landing.
The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band's Tachymeter
As is the case with most wristwatches featuring a tachymeter, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band's one lays on its rim. Etched on the 'rim' of the lock, the circular frame in which the clock sits inside of the tachymeter is the numbers written on it. Said numbers run counter clock-wisely from 60 up to 700 with differently spaced intervals between them.
The tachymeter is just an extra scale that can help you measure both time and speed. To use it, just start the chronograph to measure the object or event you seek to measure and stop once done. The clock's second hand will point out to both the seconds marked inside the clock and to the distance marked on the tachymeter, usually represented in miles.
Besides the obvious advantage the tachymeter affords for time measuring, it also has aesthetic value. The numbers etched around the rim of the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band give it an air of complexity hard to replicate for more plain watches.
