    How do I set/read this???

    Hey everyone!
    I'm embarrassed to ask this, but I don't know how I should set or read the minutes on this chrono. (I know how to set it. But not where I should initially position the minute counting hand.
    It has on hand on the minute dial, with a long side and short side, which seem to correspond with the two rows of minute marks. The thing is, there doesn't seem to be a zero. I'm extremely confused.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1414166223314.jpg

    Correction:

    The minute counter is useless, there are only 28 possible "tick" macks on the subdial. So if you set the short end of the hand level with the left hand horizontal space as zero , it should take 14 jumps on the inner scale to reach the right hand horizontal space, then the long hand should pick up the outer scale, and after 14 more jumps complete 360 degrees of rotation.

    You can get a G10 with a 24 minute minute counter or a 30 minute counter, you might be able to get a 28 minute counter.

    Turn on the chronometer for an hour and see what it does.....
