Top-5 Swiss racing watches

Swiss racing watches were initially created for race track masters. Their unique features – a chronograph and a tachymeter scale – are explained by this fact. 

Many have at least heard about the former – we need it to accurately measure time spans. 

But we should tell about the latter a little bit more. The tachymeter scale measures speed in kilometers per hour. How it is done? Countdown is activated by button when movement starts. As soon as you traveled 1 km, you stop countdown. It is also done by button. A number where the hand stops will be the average speed in km per hour.

Moreover, Swiss racing watches are watches not only for races. This is a certain style. It can be said, this is a universal style in sport watches, since you can wear them both in winter and summer. On a bracelet, a leather band and even on nylon or kevlar.
