Chronoswiss Tora Chronograph

Chronoswiss launched its first world time piece – the “Tora” – in 1994. With its dual-zone dial the “Tora” has become a faithful companion for globetrotters and all those with a cosmopolitan outlook – from Berlin toNew York and Hong Kong.

In 1999, Gerd-R. Lang launched a new creation, the “Tora Chronograph” to win the hearts of all those chronograph freaks who so far have held back from buying a universal time piece.

This wristwatch comes with an easy-to-read 24-hour dial. While local time is indicated by the usual hand mechanism from the centre, an additional, individually selectable time zone can be read off an analogue 24-hour dial on the left. Using the chronograph could not be easier or quicker: Simply press an additional third button on the side to re-set the 24-hour hands to the time zone of your choice. It has never been easier to read (nightphase with different colour) and operate a chronograph with two time zones. This exceptional concept represents a truly pioneering achievement on the world market – and one available at the moment only from Chronoswiss.

As far as correct time-keeping is concerned, the watch is equipped with the exclusive Chronoswiss caliber C.743 movement with automatic winding, a 30-minute and 12-hour counter, an analogue date display and, as a technical rarity, the 2nd time dial with high-speed pushbutton correction. Additional specifications: 25 jewels, fine adjustment, shock absorber, scratch-proof and non-reflecting sapphire glass for the cover and base, and individual numbering. The classic Chronoswiss watch case with its high recognition value consists of 19 parts, complete with a screw-on glass ring and a solid silver watch face in white or black.

The faithful customers of the young successful brand Chronoswiss were also acknowledging the unremitting dedication of Gerd-R. Lang and his employees for the “Swiss Watches Made in Munich” and awarded the Tora Chronograph with the “International Watch Award / Goldene Unruh 2000” of the “Uhrenmagazin” (Watch Magazine).
