Wear-and-tear on the internal components would similarly be sped up - but unless you were truly running it ALL the time, I doubt it would make a huge difference in your normal service intervals. Best to check with the manufacturer of your timepieces to get the recommended service schedules if you haven't already. Chronographs are, after all, tool watches, and provided they are quality timepieces to begin with, they are designed to be worn and used - so use them!

Single hand watches aren't too common, but they are more popular now than ever due to brands such as Meistersinger who produce them. The idea is that you have a watch with only an hour hand, and no minute hand. These can be in the form of traditional 12 hour dials, or in this case, a 24 hour dial. That means the single hour hand makes one full rotation each day. Time is read with the single hand as it travels between the hours as per normal. The approach is elegant and unique, but there is a clear trade off in precision. This means that you can't really have to-the-minute precision. That is further diluted on a 24 hour dial such as this. You can see that there are five indicators between each hour. The one in the middle is clearly the half hour mark, and the two small dots don't really refer to a specific moment in the hour that is easy to read (such as "1:45"). So basically, you have a dial that is precise to within about 10 minutes. If you need the exact minute, check your phone. If you are like me, then being on time within 10 minutes is something to be personally proud of.

So why have they fallen out of favor as of late? That's likely due to a few different reasons. For starters, they are notoriously difficult to adjust. You have to unbend tabs in the right places (without breaking them), and then reassemble it just so. Not something most people would be comfortable doing. Next, while they are comfortable, many people complain of the expansion links catching, snagging, and pulling arm hairs - which isn't the most pleasant feeling, as you may imagine.

With the moonphase window occupying the dial as it does, you must admit that a standard date window would only serve to sour the overall design. As such (well, it's my best guess), they've instead gone with a central hand (tipped in red, to differentiate it from the seconds hand) that indicates the date via the numbers printed on the chapter ring. This was the one area of the design that I wasn't as much of a fan of - I think removing that date indication would make for a much cleaner look, without much loss of functionality.

One of the special features that Caliber 39 has is Eterna's in-house developed Spherodrive system, which is a much more durable mainspring barrel system. The movement further operates at 28,800 bph (4Hz) and has a power reserve of 68 hours. That is much more impressive than the competition at this price for sure. Don't forget that the Caliber 39 was designed as a base, so there will be many more configurations of it in the future.

In terms of overall design, these look to have a clear layout, with the chronograph registers at 12 and 6, and the sub-seconds appearing at 9. Balancing out the dial, you've got the day and date display showing up at 3, with the fairly subtle branding showing up under the date. While I touched on the colors of the hands, I also want to point out their sizing and proportions.

That is a really good question and one that we hear a lot. There is really no simple answer but it is a combination of market reality and economics. While there are many mechanical watch loving women, most of the current female buyers of watches are seen as being more interested in the fashion/accessory or jewelry element of timepieces - as opposed to the movements inside of them.

Stepping back a few years for a moment to 1960, Rolex released the Deep Sea Special that was a non-commercial concept watch meant for extreme diving. It featured an extremely thick steel case and almost comical bulbous crystal given that it was going down near the bottom of the Mariana trench strapped to the Trieste bathyscaphe submersible. The production of the Deep Sea Special gave Rolex valuable knowledge about extreme water resistance and the watch successfully descended to 37,800 feet.

With a 44mm wide stainless steel case and 22mm lugs that host either a leather strap or a three-link steel bracelet, the Alpina Alpiner GMT 4 is a modern sports watch with a significant feel and weight on the wrist. Available with either a black or a silver dial, both models are fitted with a bi-directional 360-degree navigation bezel that caused many a quizzical second glances when we first saw the watch at Baselworld earlier this year. The crystal is sapphire, and the case back is solid to protect the anti-magnetic properties of the GMT 4's design, rated to ISO 764 (4800 A/m). The GMT 4 is also shock resistant to ISO 1413, and the dial design is legible and detailed with a small 24-hour scale on the chapter ring, a date display at three, and some simple red accenting that is common across the entire Alpiner collection.

Prior to SIHH 2014 I previewed the Parmigiani Bugatti Aerolithe Flyback Chronograph watch. In discussing Parmigiani's latest Bugatti partnership timepiece I was overall impressed with the design and features that were remarkably sober and blended a nice masculine design with a successful combination of both Parmigiani and Bugatti brand DNA. Now that I've had some hands-on time with the piece I have to say that this is one of my all-time favorite Parmigiani timepieces.
