Flyback hand: A seconds hand on a chronograph that can be used to time laps or to determine finishing times for several competitors in a race. Start the chronograph, putting both the fly back hand and the regular chronograph seconds hand in motion. To record a lap time or finishing time, stop the fly back hand. After recording time, push a button till the hand “flies back” to catch up with the constantly moving elapsed-time hand. Repeat the process to record as many lap times or finishing times as needed.

Fluted – A surface of a watch, eg dials or face carrying thin parallel grooves.
