Xemex Piccadilly Chronograph

The newly launched Chronograph from Xemex Swiss Watch effortlessly fits in with the fourth series, the Piccadilly, and its striking clarity is again causing a furor.

Just a glance at this Chronograph is enough to note the characteristic signature of the renowned Swiss designer Ruedi Külling – the company of origin can clearly be recognized from this elegant timepiece. The sophisticated interplay of time measurement, date and timer functions clearly illustrate the brand’s maxims: “Simplicity, functionality and clarity”. In accordance with these keywords, the design focuses on the essence; function is more important than formal aesthetics.

Unparalleled with its unostentatious appearance and clear lines, the wafer-thin seeming stainless steel bezel encompasses the dial, shimmering in dark black – and recedes into the background through the narrow detail on the edge. The dial is the epitome of balance and orderliness, it embodies the whole potential of time measurement pulsing within the brushed stainless steel case.

40 mm in diameter, the unique appearance of the Piccadilly Chronograph making it seem double the size in the beholder’s eye, the watch is driven and kept in time by the precise automatic SWISS MADE movement ETA Valjoux. A sapphire crystal view window grants an exclusive insight into the interior workings of this significant new creation from Xemex.

Like its predecessor, the Piccadilly Chronograph holds fast to the comfortable, flexible bridge attachments, a characteristic of the Xemex brand.
