Usually on most watches (anyway those that I have) have a shorter and wider hour hand and a thinner and longer minute hand. Well, that's what I thought until I latched on to a Rotary Chronospeed. Can anyone explain the rationale for this watch to have a larger minute hand ? I can only speculate since I have done some scuba diving. Could it be that a diver doesn't care as much about the hour hand as much as the minute hand in a dark environment (we don't all swim in a wonderful clear and pristine ocean, our rivers and lakes in Canada can get quite murky with the river and lake silt). A standard aluminum 80-cubic-foot tank on a 40-foot dive should allow for about 45 to 60 minutes. Could it be that its easier to set the bezel with a larger minute hand ? Do any other dive watches, or for that matter any other watch have this feature ? And as you can see, this Rotary model has a really good lume for murky waters.
