I may be alone in this, but I dismiss most chronographs where the timekeeping minute/hour hands are shaped with no apparent regard for how they block subdials. For me, it turns a chronograph into a fashion statement, and that gives me a bit of the creeps.
So, one would think that a purist would require either very thin minute/hour hands or the hands are skeleton. Ok, I have such a watch (pic below), but it's handicapped by insufficient lume on the skeleton hands.
The only way around that I can think of right now would be a lumed dial (probably not the subdials), where the skeleton hands would contrast fine and be readable against the lumed dial.
Anyone else bothered by how form disrupts function here? Remedies? (And don't say buy a G-Shock.)
