Regulators have been a Chronoswiss brand name since the brand introduced its first regulator wristwatch in 1987. With its 44mm case, the Grand Regulator has been one of the leader models of the Chronoswiss assortments for quite a long time. In 2017, the model got a facelift with the Flying Grand Regulator and a skeleton rendition – which we looked into here . The option of a 3D dial adds a feeling of profundity to the model and the feeling that the regulator complication is gliding over the dial. This year, the Lucerne-based brand adds a sprinkle of shading to the model with two limited editions bundled in DLC-covered steel cases.
The first thing to grab the attention with these limited release watches is their beautiful 3D dial developed on a few layers and diverging from the dull case. The lower a piece of the dial is guilloché and lacquered. The primary form has a practically full-dark shading plan, with its dim case, its dark guilloché dial and raised components on the dial. Be that as it may, it includes various traces of yellow giving an extraordinary differentiation and a strong style – on the hands and for the minutes/hours lists and, obviously, for the strap.
The red rendition is striking with its profound clear tone and the dial is especially vivacious when seen under regular light conditions. An extremely energetic dial, for sure. It is paired with a second shade of red – coral – for the hands and numerals. The limited release number is painted on a plate applied at 3 o’clock.
The Flying Regulator round, chamber like case is 44mm in distance across. It includes the brand’s trademark larger than usual onion-molded crown, side knurling and straight carries. It comes in anthracite or dark DLC-covered hardened steel. The tie bars are in a bad way. While the case is rather enormous, it sits pleasantly on the wrist as it is quite slight in comparison to its diameter.
Turn the watch over and, noticeable through the display caseback, you will find the hand-wound type C.678. On the off chance that the development depends on the Unitas, it is broadly adjusted by Chronoswiss. The regulator instrument is completely evolved and planned in-house. The equilibrium wheel highlights screws. The chicken fuses a swan-neck regulator. Chronoswiss additionally fused a stop-seconds system, which is a useful and useful addition.
The plan of the scaffolds and the development finish have additionally been overhauled. The development is embellished with round Geneva stripes and perlage. The extensions come with a dark complete the process of standing out from the rhodium-plated principle plate.
Both editions of the Chronoswiss Flying Grand Regulator are worn on a straight cut Hornback crocodile lash secured with a steel-DLC collapsing clasp. Cost is set a CHF 8,900 for the yellow adaptation and CHF 9,400 for the red form – both are accessible in the webshop . For more data, if it’s not too much trouble, visit www.chronoswiss.com .
