Note:
@Carmel Tanti, despite of not having any "Chronometer" mark, the Elite 685 does perform at the rate of a Chronometer grade movement. Marking the watch with painted or engraved wording such as "Swiss Made", "Chronometer", and alike is just some kind of tradition, not quite a must.

Not all chronometers are supplied with the report issued by the COSC as the reports are optional to the brand or maker... [wikipedia]
