Let's set aside for a second the practical need to have a chronograph. In the age of phones with timers/alarms, there is just no need for it really and for 99% of watch owners chrono is probably just a fancy thing we might use for fun. I, for one, time the distance it takes me to drive to certain destinations. Do I have to do it? No. Is it fun? For me - yes. That's my idea of fun...yeah, sad, I know...oh, boy.
But anyway, why on earth would a manufacturer include only a 30 minutes dial? This limitation makes chrono function very impractical and there are nice watches I'd have to pass on just because of this. Again, not that I need to have hours, but if I want to have a chronograph, I want it to be a proper chronograph, not a castrated one.
Am I the only one annoyed by this?
