At either periscope, hit on the timer to activate it - didn't know it was possible.

Hit it again to stop and again to reset it!

The chronometer is fully documented in the game manual.

'Chronometer' is a time keeping device.

'Watch' is a collection of five legally blind sailors chained to the top of a surfaced submarine for the sole purpose of attracting enemy shipping and aircraft.(see 'bait')

It is not a watch or a clock, it is a chronometer...

chronometer n : an accurate clock (especially used in navigation)

Best description for a "Watch" I have seen ROFLMAO..

I also like the definition for the "sonar room" as "a space better used for carrying a extra bunch of banannas, then the actual man to man the station after patch 1.3"

Found this when I Googled Chronometer Vs Chronograph.

Chrono Meter = A Watch
Chronos in Greek = Personification of Time
Meter is a term used to measure.
Hence Chronometer basically means a Watch. Now a swiss made watch to be called a chronometer has to be tested by the "COSC" (Controle Officiel Swiss des Chronometres). They do rigorous tests to make sure that the watch maintains accurate time in all conditions. They do have a certain range that they agree to.

Graph = Set of Elements (in mathematics X's and Y's)

Chronograph is a watch that has two different time systems (apparatus). They are used to find different time intervals in the form of seconds, minutes, days etc.

I have FAR to much time on my hands

If a torpedo explodes in the ocean and there's no none around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Or, even more compelling:
If a torpedo is fired in the ocean and there's no none around to see it, does it still miss astern of the target?
