Hi everyone, I've been enjoying reading the forums. Glad to see so many active watch connoisseurs. Maybe you can help me out. I take medications that I have to take on a certain schedule. Usually 6 or 9 hours from the last dose. I need a chronograph that can help me time that.
So many of the chronograph functions seem to be fake or non working dials. I need one that essentially works like a stopwatch, that I can tap when I take the medicine and then monitor so that i know when its been 6 hours since the last dose.
When it says 24 hour chronograph, does that mean it will do what I need, or only that it tells you the military time for the current time on the watch. I keep finding fake chronographs like this, or maybe I don't really understand the term chronograph properly.
I've looked at the Michele CSX and the Rue du Rhone 88 double 8 Origin Chronograph. I really like the 88, but cant tell for sure about their chronograph functions.Gold PVD stainless steel case with a black leather strap. Fixed gold PVD bezel. White dial with gold-tone hands and alternating Roman numeral and diamond hour markers. The Rue du Rhone logo marks the 12 o'clock position. Minute markers around the outer rim. Dial Type: Analog. Luminescent hands. Date display at the 4 o'clock position. Chronograph - three sub-dials displaying: 60 second, 30 minute and 12 hour. Quartz movement. Scratch resistant sapphire crystal.

I like a simple plain face with easy to read numbers, and a sleek classy look, not super busy or bling filled.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to determine what listings mean when they say 24 hr chronograph. Is there a universal meaning?
Any ladies out there with a Rue du Rhone or another chronograph with the function I seek? Any recommendations?
I haven't really established a budget, depends on value really. Prefer 500 or less, would go over 1000 if excellent watch I would wear for decade.
Also if I buy one with a leather watch strap I'm likely to buy a vintage gold-filled stretch band from an online retailer with lots of vintage watchbands, but will the high quality gold tone watch and gold filled watch band match?
Thanks so Much!
