This special tablet reprint contains a quartet of articles reviewing four chronograph watches. In them, our WatchTime testers report on their experiences wearing and using the watches and evaluate them for ease of use, comfort, legibility and looks. The articles also provide the results of the watches’ timing tests, performed on a timing machine and on the wrist. For each watch, the articles give a bullet-point list of “pros” and “cons” summarizing the tester’s findings. All four articles were published in WatchTime magazine and have been reproduced as they originally appeared.
