Chronoswiss Pacific Collection

Pacific—this is a name that awakens memories of Chronoswiss’s first sports watch family from the 1990s. In 2010 the legendary name resurfaces from the “sea of time”: the new generation of Pacific models sees Chronoswiss resuscitating a sporty, classic model line that unmistakably carries the typical DNA of the brand but simultaneously opens it for new target groups.

Thus the three new Pacific models have much in common with their predecessors, and could well be said to be on a common wavelength. For one, the new cases are home to the very same reliable automatic hearts, and for another it is the same family members that are coming out in 2010 wearing new visuals: the proportions of the Pacific, Grand Pacific, and Pacific Chronograph models are based on the proportions of the three originals from the 1990s.

Their dimensions have, however, increased somewhat even if their family resemblance has remained absolutely resolute: two sizes of three handed watch and a chronograph , all of which are classically sporty models for each and every day—which remains securely in focus thanks to the date window.

The new Pacific family is optimally designed for daily and leisure use thanks to its robust stainless steel case with screw-down crown and increased water resistance of 10 atm.

Visually, this young generation of Pacific models has clearly further developed, while the blood relationship remains recognizable through the sporty, elegant design. The lavishly applied markers represent an homage to the past, while the polished bezel and hands dressed in a dynamic sporty look clearly point the way to the future. Pacific comes back to life, certainly making some big waves at the same time.
