Chronograph Watches: Invented in 1816, the chronograph was used in tracking astronomical objects. Chronographs were also used heavily in artillery fire in the mid to late 1800s. More modern uses of chronographs involve aircraft piloting, auto racing, diving and submarine maneuvering.
Famous chronographs include the Rolex "Paul Newman" Daytona, and the chronographs used during all of NASA's Apollo missions to the moon, where each astronaut was equipped with a fully functioning chronograph, the Omega Speedmaster.
Chronographs are routinely used to record heart beats within hospitals, calculate speed and/or distance on athletic fields, or even as simple timers in kitchen.
