Yeah, I went through the same change. Weird, huh? The only chronographs left among my keepers are the Seiko SSC015, the Velatura SNAA91, and the Citizen Nighthawk - and one of those are among my very favorites. The strange thing is that five months ago or so I would only buy chronographs.

This all means you may have to change the name of your blog from Disciple of Chronos to Disciple of Luminos or something.

Disciple of Lucifer? Lucifer does mean "Lightbringer." Of course then I'd probably attract the wrong crowd.

But I named the blog "Disciple of Chronos" not in reference to chronographs but Chronos, the Greek titan of time from which the prefix "chrono-" is derived.

That would be some bad mojo. Keep the original name for sure.

Not all chronos are flashy though. I really like the look; it's functional and "tool"-like, since it enables you to measure the passage of time which is very appropriate for a watch. There are many occasions when i've used mine and even when I don't, it is comforting to know it's there just in case. I still like ordinary three-handers too of course, but I like having options.

For me the ultimate chronograph is something like this Omega Seamaster which, after the Seiko MarineMaster 600m, is probably my favorite true luxury watch ($3K+):

Looks like I lost another post to spam filters - I think it may be because I included a link. Anyhow, I was just saying that the ultimate chronograph would be one of the Omega Seamasters, which aren't overly flashy but are the epitome of a classy dive watch. Just search google images for "Omega Seamaster chrono" and some amazing watches come up. The finishing on these watches is unbelievable.

My favorite watches are not chronos. I have a few chronos that I like a lot----but favor the simpler look. Big, simple, functional, like my Tauchmeisters or small, extremely simple, like my Movado. I have an Aeromatic chrono I like very much and a couple Invictas I plan to have for a long time. Fact is, I don't use the chrono features, ever. They're ornamental for most of us----and in most cases, I find clutter that I don't use to be less desirable and space more desirable (on a watch). In my office, I love displaying dozens of radios, most of which I don't use often, instead of empty shelves/space.
