    New watch complication - the 'faux chronograph'

    And you know if it's spelled 'classique' - it's REALLY good!

    At least you don't have to sweat over the hand-alignment of the sub-dials.

    Many things like 'fake' sound better in French and Italian.

    New? Faux chronographs were invented about 5 minutes after real chronographs back in the 19th century. If this is the first time you've seen this sort of thing, then you've lived a very sheltered life.

    I think the point here is that the advert actually mentiones the "Faux Chrono dial", as if that was a bonus. Well, to those who just like the chrono style and are happy with a $10 watch, it might even be..

    No harm done to anyone, so moving on.

    Sure, I'd like a fauxnograph (phonograph) to wear on my wrist.
