Chrono ZM 42 mm (double pusher with central minutes)
Austrian watchmaker Habring², has just announced three new central minute counter chronographs. Unlike the configuration seen on the vast majority of chronographs — where the minutes are counted on a small subdial — the Habring Central Minute Chronos count the minutes via a central hand that utilizes the entire dial to indicate the elapsed time. The advantage being that the minutes are much easier to read at a glance. It is not surprising that the same brand who makes affordable timepieces such as a full-time foudroyante (with dead second), a crown operated chronograph and a split-seconds chronograph — produced this.
