Everyone knows that the word "chronograph" is rooted in the Greek words "chronos" (time) and "graphein" (to write). This term was coined by Nicolas Mathieu Rieussec (1781-1866), who up until last week was revered as the inventor of the chronograph. In 1821, he used his chronograph—which dropped a spot of ink on the dial when stopped to mark the timed interval—to time horseraces held on Paris' Champs de Mars. Just one year later, he received a patent for a "timekeeper, or counter, called chronograph with seconds, replica panerai indicating the length of several successive events without necessitating the attention of the observer. " In other words, his invention was intended for recording the timing of events like a stopwatch and it was accurate within one second. His device was large at 112 x 85 x 58 mm and encased in a mahogany box, which almost gave it the appearance of a marine chronometer. Breguet's Type XXII 3880, debuting at Baselworld, is the brand's newest chronograph and beats at the high frequency of 10 Hz Breguet His invention spurred London-based watchmaker Frederick Louis Fatton to make a pocket watch-style version of the ink-bearing timer. As Rieussec perfected his invention, replica watches historical Paris-based watchmakers such as Abraham-Louis Breguet and Abraham-Louis Perrelet also worked on pocket watch-style chronographs equipped with inking hands. Last week, CEO and creative director of Louis Moinet, Jean-Marie Schaller, made an astounding public announcement at the Neuchatel observatory: he had found a chronograph at a May 2012 Christie's auction that dates from 1816 - making it the first timing instrument of chronograph style in replica watch history. Moinet's should, rolex replica watches however, have been rightfully called a "chronoscope" - using instead the Greek word "skopein," meaning "to see" - since it did not leave ink on the dial. In fact, Moinet's invention resembles a modern stopwatch in many ways; it was easily a hundred years ahead of its time. Perrelet's newest chronograph has been put into its unique Turbine model Perrelet Moinet was a true academic renaissance man: a Frenchman who practiced horology, sculpting and painting. He also dabbled in astronomy. And he became a personal adviser to Breguet during his heyday. Like Breguet he made timepieces for the Murat family, the horologically enamored rulers of Naples. In 1848, he published the "Traite d'Horlogerie," a watchmaking encyclopedia.
