    Suggestions on a Inexpensive chronograph

    An auto would make sense so you don't have to worry about draining the battery while using the chrono. So is there a decent auto chrono to be had in the couple hundred dollar range, that will hold up a fair amount of years to come?

    hmm..'decent auto chrono' and 'couple hundred dollars' don't really go together. I'd be looking for one with a Val/ETA 7750 and for a bit extra you could possibly pick up a used model of one the cheaper well known and regarded brands like Hamilton or Swiss Army. You'd probably need $500 plus for new. If you do need to stick to your budget I'd suggest looking at quartz.

    I know. Problem with that is rapid battery depletion. Does Swiss army make a reliable watch in general?I have never owned one.

    Yes I believe so, though I've never owned one myself either. Tissot might be worth a look too. Do you intend to run the chrono continuously?

    Eco-Drive means you don't have to worry about battery or swing-winding everytime you leave it for a few days.

    Rapid battery depletion? You should get close to 3 years from a battery,,or go with Eco drive watch..Last thing would be save your money for a good auto. chrono.
