What's for sale?
This is the Swatch "So Biggar" chronograph watch introduced in their 2016 Spring and Summer collection. The model number is YOS452G.
It's a large, powerful-looking watch in Swatch's "X-Large" size, with a case that's 47mm wide, 55mm long and 13mm thick.
The dial is a brushed silver, the smaller hands are grey and the larger hands and hour markers are luminous white. The stopwatch markers are in black.
The case and strap are in polished stainless steel with contrasting bezel and inner strap links. The strap is adjustable and has a diver's buckle closure.
As is usual for Swatch chronographs, it has a reliable ETA quartz movement powered by a 394 battery.
Chronograph refers to the stopwatch functions, which also lets you add times and do split timing.
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.
