Monaco based haute horlogerie brand Ateliers deMonaco launches its new timepiece, the Admiral, an exceptional mechanical flyback chronograph equipped with in-house made movement.
This patented manufacture flyback chronograph, which measures a succession of elapsed times, eliminates many superfluous repetitive operations.
On ordinary chronographs, the buttons must be pressed three times in succession to measure successive intervals: once to stop the chronograph, once to reset it to zero, once to start again. With the flyback function, pressing the “flyback” button once stops timing the first interval and resets the hand to zero. The chronograph hand starts again the instant the button is released.
A pending patent for the ”Direct Return to Zero” mechanism: this mechanism is unlike other chronographs directly activated by the 4 o’clock pusher. The advantage of this mechanism is that it has a multi function Flyback Hammer.
This Flyback Hammer is programmed to action: disengage the chronograph clutch wheel, engage the brake, turn the chronograph second and minute wheel. The Admiral Chronograph is made in a limited edition of 88 pieces in each version (18Kt rose gold or 18Kt white gold).
