I don't know why it took so long, but I've had a breakthrough. And everyone needs to know.
The chronograph seconds hand can be used as a timing bezel-esque marker for countdown purposes!
Say you need a 17min timer, and it is 2:15 pm. Activate the chronograph and stop the seconds hand at the 32min mark. Bam!
Also, credit to another WC member for this one, but you can use it as a manual date marker as well, just let it count to the day of the month in seconds, and stop it. Bam!, 24hrs-accurate date marker!
That's it, likely less of an epiphany for most on here, and more of me catching up, but I wanted to share as it finally clicked.
