With certain brands, it is in some cases hard to characterize the DNA, the embodiment of their manifestations or what is the common topic connecting the assortments. With Chronoswiss then again, this is somewhat simple. To be sure, the brand has a reasonable division, as the greater part of its watches depend on a regulator show. The most recent model in the assortment doesn’t derogate from the overall principle. If it’s not too much trouble, meet the Chronoswiss Flying Regulator Open Gear, an advanced interpretation of the brand’s codes.

The regulator watch is firmly connected to the set of experiences of Chronoswiss, which is praising its 35th commemoration this year. Surely, the regulator was the primary independent model throughout the entire existence of Chronoswiss and in ensuing years, it immediately turned into the brand ́s focal topic. This model is in any event, commending its 30th commemoration this year. Hence, no curve balls that the group behind the brand needed this unique presentation to be at focal point of the audience in their most recent creation, as a see for Baselworld 2018.

However, prior to moving to this new Chronoswiss Flying Regulator Open Gear, what precisely is a regulator display? A regulator is a watch that depends on non-coaxial hands, which means the hour and moment hands are isolated. Regulators have been made to be exactness tickers, as time reference instrument utilized in watchmakers’ workshops, situated so it very well may be seen by all watchmakers, with the end goal for them to control the watches. The thought was that, by parting the signs, watchmakers had a more clear view on the main sign in such tasks: the minutes.

Chronoswiss has become one of the pioneers in the utilization of such display, which is presently the sign of their assortments. For the Flying Regulator Open Gear, the brand needed the system that drives this presentation to be noticeable – it is generally covered up under the dial. Here, the arrangement of gears that “splits” the time becomes a focal plan component of this watch. The dial is developed with various layers and the lower part can be viewed as a module board, onto which the train wheel extensions of the skeletonized gears are mounted. These proceed onward four ruby heading, producing the most un-conceivable friction.

The spans that hold the wheels are done with incredible consideration (cleaned points and straight-grained flat surfaces) just as being fixed to the dial by thermally blued screws. On top of the dial are two skimming rings onto which the tracks for the seconds and minutes are printed. The regulator show of the Chronoswiss Flying Regulator Open Gear is fueled by a programmed development (in all probability an ETA-based type). It is housed in a 41mm case with the brand’s signature plan – chamber like case, incomplete knurling and bended bezel, bended carries with screwed strap.

The Chronoswiss Flying Regulator Open Gear will be accessible in four variations. Three of them are introduced in a steel case with a galvanic black, galvanic blue or galvanic silver dial.
