Running a chronograph all the time... problem? Spitfire ref 3878

Recommended Posts

 

First post, I have been looking for that watch and I think I found it - the IWC ref 3878 Spitfire. I have a question, having never owned a high end watch.

I really like to have a large second hand - I really don't care for the little hacking second hand on the dial. Can I run the Chronograph all the time and use it as a large second hand? Will it run the watch out of power? Will it wear the watch out? Sorry to ask a pretty simple question.

Sorry, searched, found answer, will try to delete thread.

Hello,

This question comes up a lot. Yes, running a chronograph (except one*) all the time will reduce its longevity although exactly how much has never been quantified.

*One of Patek Phillippe's chronographs supposedly allow for continuous usage without a reduction in its longevity.
