What's for sale?

This is Swatch "Performance" chronograph watch from their Spring/Summer collection for 1994, model number SCN 108.

It's a unisex watch, in a standard gent's size, with a 34mm wide case.  Like all Swatch chronographs it's a stop watch with split time and add time functions (see below).

The dial is clear and easy to read, with gold-coloured roman numerals, hour markers and hands.

It has a black resin case and gold coloured function buttons. The leather strap is faced in green, with black buckle and blue retaining loop.

It has a reliable, 22 jewel quartz movement powered by a 394 battery.

How does a Swatch chronograph work?

The small dial at 6 o'clock is the normal, continuous second hand. The stopwatch uses the large second hand and the two small dials at top left and top right. Top left records minutes, top right records tenths of a second. 

The button at 2 o'clock is used to start and stop the timer. Use the button at 4 o'clock to reset the timer to zero. However, if you restart the timer without resetting it, it will restart from where it stopped and add the times together.

The button at 4 o'clock resets the timer to zero when timing has been stopped by the upper button. But it will also give you a split time if you use this button to stop the timer instead.  Split timing freezes the stopwatch so you can read the time but carries on timing internally, the hands will catch up when you restart with this button. Clever stuff.

The main crown at 3 o'clock is used to set the time and recalibrate the chronograph dials.

The original manual is included.  Using the stopwatch functions are straightforward, but if you need to recalibrate the dials (e.g. if they weren't at zero when changing the battery), then this is also covered. A pdf version of their chronograph instructions is available from Swatch.
