A term used to describe the form and/or size of a movement and often specifying the type of movement.


A watch with a stopwatch mechanism.


Movements the accuracy of which has been tested and passed by an official 15-day series of tests by the COSC, over a range of temperatures and five physical positions. The average daily deviation rate of the movement must be between –4 and +6 seconds and only then does the movement earn the right to be designated as a chronometer and receive a certificate issued by the COSC.
