Chronoswiss New Regulator Classic

After its facelift, the tried-and-tested Regulator Classic now re-emerges with a sporty elegant overall appearance. The relaunch is in this case not limited to the dial, but includes the entire watch. In the future, the all-rounder will be available in two different sizes: in addition to the 41mm diameter (a Chronoswiss standard), the Regulator Classic is also available in a 37mm case. The timepiece has been consistently revised in many other ways, especially the shortened horns providing a contemporary touch.

To enable its full use day and night, the watch comes as standard with a redesigned bracelet made of sturdy stainless steel attached directly to the case. The steel bracelet and the increased water resistance of 10 bar / 100m make the Regulator Classic the perfect companion for almost all occasions.

The source of power for the challenges of everyday life is the proven automatic C.295 caliber with a power reserve of over 40 hours, which Chronoswiss has equipped with an independent regulator modification. Otherwise, the Regulator Classic remains true to its name – its appeal stems from the blend of a classic appearance with sporty-elegant accents. Refined details such as the guilloche interior of the hours and seconds display, or the precisely scaled hands reflect the brand’s high level of watchmaking know-how.

Not least through carefully selected color and material combinations, Chronoswiss has created an uncomplicated automatic watch that effortlessly masters the balancing act between watchmaking tradition and timeless design.

The Regulator Classic is available as described in two sizes and three versions: very purist with a galvanic silver dial and thermally blued hands, or slightly more unconventional galvanized in midnight blue. The third version is even sportier, introducing a dash of dynamism with signal red accents against a dial galvanized grey and black.

Whether silver-colored, blue or grey and black, in every version elements made of Super-LumiNova guarantee optimal readability even in the dark – and make the Regulator Classic the perfect all-rounder 24/7.
