Chronoswiss Kairos Chronograph New Models

With the new Kairos Chronograph model, German watch maker Chronoswiss honours a legendary model bearing same name that was launched in 1990’s. It featured an off-centered display at the 3 o’clock position. The new generation Kairos Chronograph is inspired by the design language of its predecessor, but is outfitted with a central display that is ultimately legible. Additionally, it offers great functionality with a day/date window at the 3 o’clock position.

Even in terms of aesthetics, the Kairos Chronograph of the 21st century remains on par with its role model. Stylishly decorated with the guilloché pattern so characteristic of this line – here in a lavish wave figure – the solid Sterling silver dial is a real eye-catcher. The chronograph has become entirely contemporary boasting a proud new case size of 42 mm, which remains entirely in line with its traditional look. Whether elegant in solid red gold case, sporty in stainless steel, or robust in an anthracite-colored DLC coating, the new interpretation is a resounding success.
