The association of design and watchmaking, passion and technology, originality of form and quality of movement inspires the INSTINCT 5053 CHRONOGRAPH TWO TIME ZONE model.
The CHRONOGRAPH 180° version was voted Watch of the Year 2006 by the magazine Montres Passion, ahead of prestigious competitors, and was acclaimed unanimously by enthusiasts of watch design as an outstanding success. Bold and elegant, original in its construction and its mechanism, this watch refashions the tonneau shape to give it an aura of contemporary design.
RODOLPHE swept master watchmakers along in his quest to create the INSTINCT 5053 CHRONOGRAPH TWO TIME ZONE timepiece. Its innovation resides in the construction of the extraordinary movement combining two time zones, revealing an aesthetic signature which is unmistakably that of its designer.
