Saw a bi-metal Daytona today and wasn't sure if it was real or not. I noticed that the large second hand was ticking and no other dial was moving similar to a second hand.

I know on the last 2 generations of Daytona the time telling second hand sits in the 6 o'clock dial, with the large second hand being used for the chrono function. His pusher was unscrewed to start and stop the chrono function which is why I'm so uncertain.

The watch had the convential Daytona layout so it isn't one of the old models from the 60s. Was there a generation with the current dial layout that used the chrono hand for seconds rather than one in the dial? If the Daytona is low on battery will it disable the second hand and just run the chrono hand?
