    Huh…. I’m not sure I follow the logic. Does it have to do with dividing by 2 rather than 5? I’m afraid I’m somewhat clueless…


    If so, Breitling makes a watch – waaay beyond my price range – where they have a sub-dial with 0-100 marks on it, so the fraction-of-a-minute math is easier when using the stopwatch. Perhaps you can glue on a similar every 4 minute sub-dial on yours.


    Just a thought…

    Thank you Paul. It would be nice if someone would make a watch face with marks every four minutes... 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, etc.. no fives!
