Wonít hurt it. I donít run my chronos constantly as a second hand. However I do use my chrono frequently sometimes many times a day as part of my job which timing various tests is a requirement.

There is another side to running chrono constantly. Watch is less accurate when chrono running. Also, you are technically adding much more wear and tear to movement by constantly running it so ostensibly you are heading toward needing service sooner rather than later. Your watch,do what you will, but just something to think about.

That is not so with the in-house Breitling chrono. Something to do it being a vertical clutch. I know that to be the case with the Avenger Hurricane XB1210.
