    Some yearís ago timing the period of a carbide bomb passing the drill bit until the resulting gas is sensed at surface whilst drilling oil wells. The duration tells you the hole condition.

    Going through potty training with my oldest. Every 30-45 min itís POTTY TIME! The Speedy has been very helpful. Obviously any watch with a timer of any sort (or a smartphone) would do the same job, but itís fun and easy to use.

    I was never under any illusion that I really needed the functionality of a chronograph (not to mention a tachymeter) when I bought my Speedmaster Date. I wanted it rather because of the sporty / technical look and, as I'm an engineer, I thought it would be cool to have a stopwatch on my wrist.

    Since owning it, I've used the chronograph for such vital daily tasks as timing my way to work, cooking pasta and measuring my heartbeat (in the most convoluted way, by counting to 15 beats, reading off the tachymeter and dividing by 4 - there are for sure easier ways).

    Does anyone find less trivial regular use of their chronograph than I do?

    I use my Speedmaster and Strela for cooking too! Not just pasta, but just about anything! I especially like to use it for steak, considering the cost of a good cut. I don't like a well-done porterhouse!

    At work, I use my chronographs for meetings facilitation. I timebox certain topics within the scope of 30-60 minutes so I can ensure that we stay on track and cover everything that we need to.

    ... I also just love to push buttons. Not metaphorically, of course. ;)

    I've always wondered if the chronograph function was actually used, now I know.
