Just like the Flying Regulator Open Gear, the Flying Regulator Night and Day is also a completely in-house development, from design to module construction. Most of the components required are manufactured locally in Lucerne.

Looking at the Flying Regulator Night and Day, the unusual and intricately designed day/night dome display at the 9 o’clock position is the first thing to catch the eye. It was embedded in a half-dome and given a gleaming metallic look with titanium.

The stars on the night side even glow in the dark thanks to their Super-LumiNova coating. The luminous white material on the hands and indexes also significantly helps to ensure optimum legibility at night. The day side is a lighter shade of blue. The dial design alone comprises a total of 19 parts.

Alongside the aptly named day/night display, the Flying Regulator Night and Day has a 3-day date display at the 3 o’clock position. At the 6 o’clock position, the dial reveals some intense insights. Here, Chronoswiss has artfully uncovered the seconds wheel, on which the funnel-shaped scale draws the gaze almost hypnotically. The day/night display and date are easy to set using the crown.

The Flying Regulator Night and Day is available in four exciting designs – one of which is a limited special edition of 50 worldwide. Its design is based on the classic contrast between a deep cherry red and the galvanic blackness of the dial.

Red highlights emphasize the funnel-shaped hour display and the seconds wheel designed like a rotary dial. The limited edition number is meticulously painted by hand on the bottom of the day/night display.

Three further designs are available in elegant red gold combined with a matte black galvanized dial and a sporty stainless steel case with a blue or silver dial.
