Pocket Chronograph Rattrapante Breitling - split second pocket watch - 1929

Chronographe-Compteur Classique

Pocket watches (not stopwatches) Breitling are unrecognized rarities 1. Ranges, as Chronograph particularly valuable and rare. You can find faster 1000 pocket watches from Patek Philippe on the market as a single Breitling.

Pocket watches are watches with chronograph function with an additional mechanism for short-term measurements. You will be using a second hand usually stored centrally produced, with printers in the side of the housing, or the crown started, stopped and reset to zero.

The usual Chronograph is a "ratchet wheel-chronograph". This mechanism causes the ratchet wheel operated from the outside via a pusher the starting, stopping and resetting the chronograph hand.

The King of the stopwatch functions is the
"Chronograph Rattrapante"

(Pointers-chronograph); a stop with two superimposed chronograph hands, for example, in sport in order to be able to measure lap times. The hand will be launched jointly by means of a push-button; then the Doppelzeiger is stopped while the chrono hand and continue for also can be stopped. A renewed push of a button, the Doppelzeiger jump back under the chrono hand down gracefully, then together. Since the Doppelzeiger chrono hand dragged by this mechanism also means "drag-chronograph".

The operation of the "hauling" of the chronograph hand by the Doppelzeiger describes the French language as the "Rattraper" (= will catch up).
Similar to the minute repetition, the mechanics of the drag-Chronograph a special challenge for the Uhrenkonstrukteure. Finally, it will be to master the task, two stopping mechanisms for staying in a clock and to link. A Chronograph for gourmets.

In 1922, Patek Philippe A rattrapante-watch on the market. The watch with the No. 124824 and the case no. 235326 WAS ON 14. Nov. 1999 at Antiquorium under Lot 448 for 1,918,387 US$ shall be auctioned. This was the highest price at this time, the ever for a wristwatch in an auction has been achieved.
