History of the chronograph
Origin and development in the 19th century
The chronograph has a long and fascinating history dating back to the 19th century. It was originally developed as an instrument for measuring time in sports competitions and astronomical observations. With its ability to measure precise time intervals, the chronograph revolutionised the way we perceive and use time.
From pocket watch to wristwatch
The first chronographs were pocket watches, mainly used by scientists and athletes. Over time, they became smaller and more practical, eventually finding their way onto the wrist. Thanks to this miniaturisation, the chronograph is now an integral part of many wristwatches, from the Dual Time to the XXL watch.
Milestone: the automatic chronograph
One of the most important innovations in the history of the chronograph is the development of the automatic chronograph. These watches combine the complexity of a chronograph mechanism with the convenience of automatic winding. ADVOLAT continues this tradition with its automatic watches, which are distinguished by their high precision and outstanding quality of workmanship.
