Which is in the same order of magnitude as the tag heuer watch measured deviations

The whole thing works beautifully and precisely. It's no wonder that TAG Heuer won first prize in the sports watch category for this innovation at the Grand Prix d'Horologerie de Geneve in 2008. I made various short and long measurements during my Caltrain rides from San Jose to San francisco (and intermediary stations) and back, using the Grand Carrera Caliber 36 along with my Casio Pathfinder and my iphone 4S. The *non-scientific* results, shown in Tables 1 and 2, indicate that my TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Caliber 36 is not only accurate to 1/10th of a second, but tag heuer Formula 1 replica seems to deviate 0. 05 seconds to the CASIO Pathfinder for short measurements and 0. 15 second from my iphone 4S clock application digital chronograph for longer measurements.
This is a decent result if you account for the fact that the margin of error of me pushing both the watch and the iphone start buttons at the same time likely has a margin of error of at least +/- 0. 05 second which is in the same order of magnitude as the measured deviations. As Ariel indicated to me, I also realize that there exist electronic machines that will precisely measure the accuracy of your chronograph, however, I don't own one and am not about to invest in one either. Plus, while it took an hour or so of my time to tabulate and gather, it was fun to actually use the chronograph… How many can say that of your chronographs? As i mentioned, the watch measures 43 millimeters with the well protected screwed down crown cartier santos 100 replica is stamped with the TAG Heuer shield armor logo in silver on a black sapphire crystal. The watch's dial is black with well visible hour markers in polished steel and marked seconds around the dial.
The dial is recessed and a second smaller dial where the caliper moves contains markers for 1/5th second between any two second markers. The bezel is also polished steel with a black marked tachymetre that is done discretely, thereby, not distracting the users who may not care to measure speed.
At 9 o'clock is a cutout vertical strip that allows the black and red hands to be seen and move to indicate the current seconds. While interesting and giving the dial an asymmetric feel, it is pretty useless and panerai Luminor replica to read since there are no indications of what seconds we are at in a minute... The black hand is shown for the first 40 seconds and the red for the last 20 seconds, thus helping the guessing game, but what I found is that it simply just frustrates me, as it is still too hard to guess what exact second it is at. The movement also does not hack so this cut has an always moving hand, I guess it tells you the watch is functioning. The accuracy of the chronograph is in great part due to the El Primero-based movement which is a C. O. S. C. certified movement that beats at 36, 000 bph. The beautiful movement can be seen from the sapphire window on the back.
Unlike most visible casebacks, TAG decided to split this one into two viewing sapphire windows with the remaining steel marked with the TAG Heuer name and logo, model name and number, as well as the unique serial number of the watch.
