This watch is equipped with two chronograph mechanisms, each working on its own column-wheel and therefore having independent functions. Thanks to their respective control buttons, each of them can be activated independently of the other; the two chronographs perform the “start” / “stop” / “return to zero” functions and each drives its own 30-minute counter (these are with instantaneous jumps).
