    Helgray Silverstone Meca Quartz Chronograph on Kickstarter

    I've just backed this Kickstarter, I umm-ed and ah-ed but just couldn't resist its good looks. Now to spend the next few months deciding which colour. Initially the blue caught my eye, but now the black dial is growing on me...

    Then again there is green..

    Have to say that's very appealing. Great size, classic looks and an interesting movement.

    I manhandled the prototype of this back in the summer. Note that the minute subdial is sixty minutes not thirty and that the hand on that subdial is quite fat. I found it very difficult to get an accurate reading from it. *Very*

    PS I haven't looked at the ks page so I've no idea if this detail will be the same on the production pieces

    I don't think I have ever used a chronograph to measure anything longer than a minute, only really buying cos it looks cool!

    Are you one of those posers who wears a chronograph to time things rather than just because the dials look cool?

    I have asked if there are any changes in the final production...

    Not only do I time things with my chrono but the one I had didn't have any subdials

    Wow. Do you use, like, maths to count up the elapsed time?

    When you changed the selector from time to chrono the hands all went to 12 o'clock ready to be used as a chrono. You could then change the selector back to time, and the chrono would keep running. Awesome watch. Seiko no longer make the movement
