Inspired by a mainly medical timepiece from the early 1920s, the Longines Pulsometer Chronograph measures the number of heartbeats, in addition to the time. The original model of this reissue was used as an instrument by the medical profession to calculate a patient's heart rate reliably and quickly. The white lacquered dial is adorned with painted black Arabic numerals which subtly enhance "Breguet"-type blued steel hands, while the red of the pulsometric scale stands out in perfect refinement.

The DS-8 chronograph from Certina adds a new complication indicating the mean duration of the cycle and quarters of the moon. So as to position this function at 10 o’clock, the high-precision PrecidriveTM movement offers an original layout of the chronograph counters. While the 12-hour display appears through an aperture inside the 60-minute counter, 60-seconds timing is done by a central sweep-seconds hand.
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Hublot’s Big Bang model, the brand is revisiting one of its most practical complications – the alarm clock. One of the oldest complications, the alarm clock function preceded even the advent of hands.
