just to illustrate some more "traditional" continuously running minute counter designs.
More "classic" is hardly possible, I think - Gourdain stop watch/clock from the middle of 17 hundreds, 60 sec and 10 minute counter:

Vacheron & Constantin grand comp, doens't really look cheap either

PP rattrapante with 60 minute and 12h counter (comptes tous):

PP minute repeater chronograph rattrapante, also with continuous minute counter...

Of course it would be easy to also show some very classy and classic watches with semi instantaneous minute counter designs, but I wanted to show how this design is embeded in watchmaking history.
So, constantanuously minute counter per se = less sophisticated, depart from classic design doesn't make sense to me.

Best regards
