    Rolling eyes HELP TO READ 1/20 SECOND stopwatch Chronograph

    Hi there i really need your help on this

    I bought a gshock watch GWA1100 with the function of stopwatch 1/20 second









    I know that :

    Hour hand > Minutes
    Minute Hand > Seconds
    Second Hand > 1/20 Second

    So my question is when i stop the stopwatch , the minute hand point towards 9 ( which is 9 seconds ? ) and the second hand point towards 18

    What does that mean and how to read it ?

    There are the numbers on the inner ring (under city codes) that increase every 10 to 100 at 12 o'clock. That is 1/100 second indicator. So your second hand at 18 min mark lands at about 30 on the dial. It is 0.30 seconds. Total is 9.3 seconds. They says 1/20 means the resolution is 0.05 sec in the reading.

    Re: HELP TO READ 1/20 SECOND stopwatch Chronograph

    So each tick of the second is 0.02 second ?

    Okay i understand to read on the 1/100

    But what is the meaning of the resolution is 0.05 sec in the reading ?

    No, each tick is 0.05 second (0.05 =1/20).

    It's the minimum interval that you can read from this watch. Since each second tick is 0.05 sec jump, you can't measure 0.02 sec, for example. Or in your case, you can't measure 9.31 sec. Only 9.30 or 9.35 sec.

    there are 20 ticks in one second ?

    where are the 20 ticks in the watch ?

    The 1/100 second indicator shows :

    10 Centisecond = 0.1 Second

    100 Centisecond = 1 Second

    So how do i read a 0.05 second ?

    Each line is 0.1 sec so if it lands in between the lines then it is a 0.05 of a sec.

    Dude. If you look at the inner ring, you'll see the numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, etc., progressing clockwise around the ring, ending with 90.

    Think of 10 as being .10, or one tenth of a second, 20 as .20, or two tenths, 30 as .30, and so on.

    When you operate the stopwatch and hit "stop," the second hand will always stop on one of these tenth markers or exactly between two of them. If it lands on 10, that means .10. If it lands on 20, that means .20. If it lands between 10 and 20, it means .15. If it lands between 20 and 30, it means .25. Get it?

    The smallest increment is .05, which is five one hundredths, or one twentieth, of a second.

    That's it. I can't make it any simpler than that.

    Hope this helps!

    Nice watch, by the way.
