Tachymeter, what is it?-Charlie Paris

Watch traymeter. What's the point?

Watch trachymeter, definition

The term tachymeter seems abstract? Let's start by defining it.
A tachometer is an instrument thatmeasure speed of an object but also of a living being. This instrument takes into account speed in kilometers per hour, that is, how long we will take to travel a distance. With this instrument, we can visually determine ourcourse time. In the world of clockwork, this concept can be found in chronograph watches. Thechronograph watches have a tachymetric scale on their dial, thanks to the needle of seconds that indicates the time required to travel your distance.

Watch trachymeter, operation

How do you run a chronograph watch or a tachometer watch?On a chronograph watch is a pusher that throws the needle for seconds, its needles belong to this famous chronograph. Once the chronograph is launched, the needle must be stopped for seconds after a kilometer. Following this stop we can look at the number of the needle positioning itself. This figure indicates our speed in km/h. For more information on chronograph watches, please visit our explanatory articlehere.

Tachymeter, the different types

A tachometer consists of different scales of measurements: specified, unspecified scale, or two scales.
-With onespecified scale indicates your speed in kilometers per hour over a 1000-meter graduation.
-When you have a tachometer watch with a
unspecified scale, that just means you have to base yourself on a 1000-meter scale.
Two scale levels means several graduations on your watch, the first one also bases on 1000 meters unlike the second that is based on 100 meters.
