Default I love to get me a good chronograph

But most of them only measure up to 60 minutes, except for the UFO.

Do you plan to use the chronograph function for anything specific?

When I Travel, I like to time my flight to calculate my location (I carry maps and a ruler). Most flights take more than an hour.

The "Pogue" rotating bezel set to the minute hand can time events up to 1 hour + 30 minutes on the subdial.

Setting the rotating bezel to the hour hand can time events up to 12 hours + 30 minutes on the subdial.

That's another option, I was hoping to stay with Seiko.

All the 6138's and 7016's are 12 hour timers. Only the 6139's are 30 minute timers, but if you have the rotating bezel, you can time there for another 12 hours as well. Here are some examples of 6138's.

Thank you for the poster. I love 6138s. Assuming they have been well maintained, how accurate are they?
