Chronograph For Motorcycle Fans # 2: Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Compressor Extreme World Chronograph
In the motocross the drivers and their time knives have to endure small, but many fast consecutive shocks. This continuous load is even more stressful for a mechanical clockwork than for the human organism, because the functionality and the interaction of the moving parts suffer from vibrations. The solution to the problem lies in shock damping systems for plants and housings that go beyond the omnipresent impact protection of the balance.
According to chronologicalwatches, Jaeger-LeCoultre usesa separate titanium factory containerfor its Master Compressor Extreme World Chronograph, which is bolted to the steel base of the case and the bezel; the screws are mounted in springs which transmit the vibrations of the housing to thein-house automatic system 752only to a very great extent. The housing is also made of titanium and stainless steel and measures 46.3 millimeters in diameter. Motorcycle fans, who want to go on the piste with this chronograph, should have 15.200 euro available.
Chronograph For Motorcycle Fans # 3: Tudor Fastrider Black Shield
Since 2011, Tudor has been cooperating with the manufacturer Ducati.

The design template for the 42 millimeter clock with tachymeter scale is the Ducati XDiavel. Inside the ceramic case, the automatic caliber Eta-Valjoux 7753 provides sufficient energy. The pushers for starting, stopping and zeroing are made by Tudor instead of stainless steel and coated with a black PVD coating. The sports vintage watch is available for 4,610 euros.
