It is always pleasant to be able to recommend a product both inexpensive and vell worth owning. The Ingersoll “Cronostop” 50/- stop-watch comes into this category. It has clear figures, keeps good time and functions reliably in spite of harsh treatment — remarks we base on a year’s experience of the even less-expensive 30/- type without a separate large seconds-hand. This watch was bought to tide a club over an emergency when tests had been planned and no stop-watch was to hand. It has since run non-stop although grossly neglected and dropped more than once. The 50/- version has this full-dial seconds-hand, which is adequate for timing to within about a fifth of a second. Naturally, at this competitive price a fly-back action cannot be included, but provided both hands are available for holding the watch and operating its stop-action reasonably accurate results are achievable, suitable for the ordinary person’s lap-time checks or for ordinary club driving-test contests. While the seconds-hand is stationary the entire movement is likewise out of action, but here again, the low price has to be respected. As an ordinary watch this 50-bob Ingersoll is remarkable value and should save many a young enthusiast much gold for expending on his car. The makers are Ingersoll, Ltd..
