Although picking the best value-for-money chronograph watch from all the excellent models is difficult, a couple of watches really stand out. From this list, Tissot's PRX Chronograph is an obvious candidate with its stunning design and Swiss-made automatic movement. However, if you fancy something quirky, and great value for money, check out Seagull's 1963 chronograph.
If money is no object and you want the best that the horological world offers, then a chronograph from one of the big three watchmakers - Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin - would be the obvious choice. But if you'd prefer an iconic watch? Then Omega's Moonwatch or the ever-popular Rolex Daytona will be at the top of your list.
As we mentioned earlier, watch geeks love chronograph watches because of the complexity of the feature and the years of experimentation and innovation needed to develop this complication. Battery-powered quartz watches bypass much of that watchmaking prowess and tend to be less popular with watch enthusiasts. But make no mistake, they function just as well, if not better, than mechanical chronographs and tend to have the same distinctive styling.
