    Do you let your chrono's run all the time?

    When you put it away for the night, do you stop the chrono from running? Is there any harm to letting run all the time. I would guess starting it stopping it puts wear on it as well?

    Nope. It'll kill your battery faster than a cheap watch loses value.

    The only time I would run the chrono would be to time something. Otherwise it seems kind of pointless to allow those hand to just whiz around.

    My chronograph is only on in the very rare instance I need it.

    Better yet...why would you let your chrono run all the time? Stopping it at night isn't even an option...because it shouldn't be running all the time to begin with.

    Yes, but it was a digital Casio.

    I won't let any mechanical chronograph run beyond my need just for fun.

    Would you let a stopwatch run continuously? A chronograph is a type of stopwatch.

    Only if I'm timing something will I run my chrono; otherwise, there's no point.
