Flyback Chronograph

Flyback Chronograph

A chronograph of which the elapsed seconds hand can be stopped, returned to zero and restarted instantly with a single push of a button. (Restarting a standard chronograph requires that you stop the timing with one push, return the hand to zero with a second push and restart the hand with a third push.) A flyback function is useful in timing a rapid sequence of events such as the laps in a race.
