I stumbled across these watches today. These might be old hat to some but I thought it was worth sharing. I think they work like a chrono - push the button and the 'meter' runs through from 0 to 60. It would be even better if you could add minutes to the 'meter' e.g. press the button 20 times to add 20 minutes to the meter, which then ran down to zero. But either way, I thought they were quite cool.

All of them are very interesting watches and a cool little sub culture in themselves. Who knew??

I always think people who wear JLC watches should not care about parking fees, let alone putting it on a watch :p

I'm a little confused about the function. So the dial rests at zero, and then starts counting the minutes up when you press the pusher? How do you reset it?

I had never seen that complication before. Pretty cool, if you ask me. Thanks for sharing and congrats for your unusual timepiece!

Put another dollar in the meter?

great!
I actually find that a very useful and fun complication for timing basic things (cooking eggs and I work in a lab where most intervals are 5-30min).
Anyone aware of affordable current models with similar vibe?
