Holiday shopping is in full swing. Does one of your loved ones adore fine timepieces? Wondering which watches with complications make good gifts? Or perhaps you’re thinking of treating yourself by investing your hard-earned bonus in an icon like the Rolex Daytona, Omega Speedmaster, or Breitling Navitimer?

The chronograph function is the second most popular complication on Chrono24. However, if you consider the date function a “simple complication,” chronographs actually take the top spot, according to sales. We asked ourselves how this function was originally developed and why it has so many fans today – especially since its practicality is fading in the wake of multi-functional smart devices.

The answers to these questions can be found by looking at a small selection of models. So, we laid out the Rolex Daytona, Omega Speedmaster, TAG Heuer Monaco, IWC Fliegeruhr Chronograph, and Breitling Navitimer side by side. They’re all chronographs, but each one is different in terms of design, price, and character. Find out more in our video!
