Regulator watches remain as a cherished memory to me, repeating a former period with an interesting arrangement of free registers for the hands. We’ve as of late took a gander at some eccentric ones, similar to the Hamilton Jazzmaster Regulator Cinema and Baume HRS Limited Edition Automatic , yet with regards to genuine pieces, Chronoswiss has accepted the style vigorously. Back in 1987, it was the first to create a regulator wristwatch, the Régulateur, and has progressed the style with tense plans like the Flying Regulator Open Gear and Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton Limited Edition . Indeed, the new 2019 Limited Edition is an advancement of the last mentioned, adding strong tones and differentiations to the more conventional silver esthetic. Other models in the reach have a comparative vibe with unmistakable shading plans, however its most recent with a sprinkle of yellow and red may be its generally contemporary, might I venture to say ‘youthful’ edition in the Flying Regulator Skeleton line?
The 21-section hardened steel case stays standard across the arrangement at 44mm in width and 12.48mm in tallness. Other standard highlights incorporate knurling around the top and base edges of the case and larger than usual onion crown, alongside strong, bending carries that append to the crocodile Hornback tie (with collapsing catch) by means of uncovered screws. You will not confuse a Chronoswiss with some other brand. It’s water-impervious to just 30m, so don’t stress over downpour, however leave it inside if taking a swim.
The champion highlights for mid 2019 are the tones, supplanting the silver dial and blue components from the previously mentioned Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton Limited Edition with dark, yellow and red. This gives an engaging differentiation to the basic silver skeletonized development and makes more discernable profundity. Poire Stuart-style hands are again present, however the moderate dull blue from the previous model has been lit up with red. The hour hand sits in a raised channel sub-dial at 12 o’clock with another yellow tint, while the seconds hand sits in a more modest, more quelled dark sub-dial at 6 o’clock.
The conspicuous moment hand is incorporated and reaches out to the dial’s edge, however there’s an intriguing little sub-dial encompassing its middle. It has a transformed moment scale that the hand’s stabilizer follows, likewise portraying the minutes. Excess, however cool meticulousness. The new shading range offers a bolder, more isolated perspective on the dial’s components, and to finish things off, the 35 numeral on the external moment scale is yellow too (a somewhat late gesture to the brand’s 35th anniversary).
The heart of the piece is the skeletonized, hand-wound Chronoswiss type C. 677S. In view of the Unitas 6498 development, it’s been vigorously adjusted in-house in Lucerne, Switzerland with the regulator module itself being completely evolved in-house. It has 17 gems, beats at 18,000vph (2.5Hz) with a 46-hour power save. Extra highlights incorporate an Incabloc stun security framework and stop-seconds instrument. Seen from the sapphire presentation caseback, a remarkable, changed extension configuration, swan neck regulator and openwork esthetic are universes from the base Unitas.
The Chronoswiss Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton 2019 Limited Edition, as the name proposes, is limited to just 30 pieces with the individual number hand-painted on the correct focal point of the dial. The watch retails for CHF 9,150, equivalent to the other steel variations in the Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton arrangement.
