Seconds stop at call

Many watches spot a seconds stop which engages if one pulls the crown to the position ‚setting of time'. A shady affair, if you ask me. Especially if the crown also takes care to set the date.

The seconds stop of the "VA" only engages if the crown is pulled ot the outermost position. This mechanism enables that minutes and seconds can be adjusted completely independend from each other. While you can concentrate on the seconds if you want to time your watch with the official time signal, you can neglect the minutes. After the seconds are perfect you can take care of the minutes or even the hours.
