The Timemaster Chronograph Date wristwatch from Chronoswiss truly is a stunner in its dimension and in its visual appearance. This stunning presence, resulting from its case diameter of 44 millimeters makes sense, perfect sense in fact. It exquisitely serves the reading precision. It’s about nothing else when it comes to functional Chronographs.
The “Timemaster Chronograph Date” exactly takes time up to the quarter second and adds the split-seconds up to twelve long hours. The best is: No mater if it comes to split-seconds, minutes or hours, all details of the stopping process can be clearly read without a magnifying class when stopping the Chronograph. The expression of the dial is clear and precise. There is no superfluous distraction. The functionality dominates. Exactly what one would expect from a wristwatch such as this one. The same holds true for the execution of the total of seven hands.
Since they were uniquely created and produced for the “Timemaster Chronograph Date”, their dimensions and proportions are in harmony with the dial-typography. The lengths are exactly coordinated with their dedicated scales; their shape- and color-design corresponds with the particular purpose. Accordingly, the three Chronograph hands are consistently kept in red. This prevents any confusion about what belongs where while stopping. This raises the question, why this isn’t standard with all Chronographs. The answer is simple: Because the reflection and the detailed examination of this matter take such a considerable quantum of time that others quite frivolously just don’t take.
The “Timemaster Chronograph Date’s” water resistance lasts up to 10 atm. The Chronograph pushers have a structured top and the extremely handy turnip crown is purposefully extruding. This way it can be easily reached and operated in all circumstances. For example, while setting the time or to correct the centrally-located date-hand in all months with less than 31 days. Talking about the date: The analog design and the 117 millimeter circumference of the corresponding numeral ring at the edge of the dial do not leave any doubt which day of the month one is currently experiencing.
An additional chronometric aid can be seen in the turning bezel with luminous marker. One move is enough to set any chosen moment, regardless if “departure’ or the planned “arrival”. Chronoswiss does not make any experiments when it comes to the movement. The automatic caliber ETA 7750, which has proven itself for 33 years, is being used. It exhibits its meticulously finished qualities behind the screwed-on sapphire-crystal base.
