The ETA G10.212 quartz chronograph movement displays time through an analog format; both the hourly display and measured time. It is operated with the two pushers and adjusted through the 3’0 clock crown. The small seconds are counted with the jumping hand at the 6 o’clock counter while the long, central seconds hand measures the stopwatch seconds in 1/10th increments for 30 minutes at a stretch, which can be counted in both ADD and SPILT modes. The movement comprises 4 Jewels and a moderate usage (run for 30 minutes twice every day) shall make the battery last for a little over 24 months. If the chronograph is never used, it will last for more than three years.
The movement also features Tissot Watches for Men own PowerDrive and PreciDrive technologies, the latter bringing a precision that passes the COSC chronometer standards if not exposed to impacts and/or temperatures staying between 20°C and 30°C. It is the result of thermo-compensation operating principle, which controls and regulates the motor pulses depending on the ambient temperature. Moisture, however; has no impact upon the technology. The former one, however; is the technology that drives the hands, offering greater precision and resolution than the older methods, making it possible to count the stopwatch seconds to their fractions.
