    Looking for 6 hour plus chronograph (ladies)

    I am searching for a chronograph watch for my wife. Most chronographs I have found stop at 60 minutes (some 30 minutes). I want something that can time for hours (At least 6, ideally 12). Any help?

    Sinn 6030, at 38mm, a nice size for the ladies.



    I hope Sinn doesn't mind me borrowing their image of these watches.

    Temption Ladies Cora Chronograph

    Seiko also makes several styles of quartz chronographs (far more economical that the above) which have two hands on the six o'clock sub-dial, one for minutes, one for hours (up to 12 hours). Google Images with "Seiko Chronograph", you will see a whole bunch of them.

    Not sure if I understand correctly. All automatic Valjoux 7750 movements have three subdials; one is a sweep second hand, the other subdial indicates 30 minutes elapsed time, the 3rd subdial indicates up to 12 hours elapsed time The large sweep second hand (center) is indicating seconds.

    Problem is that many chronographs simply stop after 60 minutes

    Something a bit smaller so it looks good on a ladies wrist. Looking for something under $500.

    That is true of the 7750, but most of your quartz chronographs have running seconds in the upper left (or 9), 1/10 sec in the upper right (or 3), and minute counter at 6. No hour counter.

    There aren't many ladies chronographs with the hour counter, for the price you're looking at you will probably have to go quartz, I suggest looking at Seikos. Try a google search for "Seiko chronograph lady's" you'll find stuff like this:
