Chronoswiss Kairos Medium

Chronoswiss created the Kairos line of watches in 1989. The classic Kairos Automatic and the Kairos Automatic-Chronograph have become esteemed leader models in the exclusive mechanical Chronoswiss collection.

Now the small Kairos familiy celebrates the addition of several further models: the classic Kairos-Automatic with matte black dial enchants by its distinguished reserve. White Breguet numbers and white lacquered steel hands make it very easy to read. For good reason nothing has changed in the perfectly shaped special steel bottom with an inlet of sapphire glass, waterproof to a depth of 30 meters.
The Kairos Medium is targeted at watch enthusiasts, gentlemen with a small wrist or ladies who look for an expressive wristwatch with automatic winding. Every glance at the 19-part case, the discreet dial of massive sterling silver, the carefully polished blue steel hands and the bevelled date window of this distinguished model reveals the typical love of detail Chronoswiss has become renowned for.

The Kairos Medium is available in gold, gold/steel and steel.Although ladies have had a considerable influence on the development of the wristwatch, they are generally given short shrift when new models are created; but not at Chronoswiss. The volume of the case of the new Kairos “Lady” is perfectly suitable to the rigorous demands of the athletic, elegant woman. The 30 mm diameter, the thinness and the precise finish of all details make this classic model a piece of jewellery for every women’s wrist. Of course, to preserve the precious good time, only a mechanical clockwork can be used. The Kairos “Lady” Automatic is available in gold, gold/steel and steel.

Since 1995 Chronoswiss is able to present another novelty. The knowing expert will realize what it is. The new models have exclusive Breguet Losange type steel hands presently available only at Chronoswiss. All the hands are carefully finished manuallyground to a point (i.e. bomb shaped) and polished. These subtle details, which are of great importance for the overall impression once again prove that a Chronoswiss wristwatch is more than the sum of its parts.
