Formex Essence ThirtyNine Automatic Chronometer

Formex Swiss Made Watches unveils a 39mm version of its Essence ThirtyNine Automatic Chronometer watch. This new model comes with the same detailed case finishing as the original model, features an officially COSC-certified mechanical Swiss caliber and unique features that make it even more comfortable on the wrist.

Made from stainless steel, the brush finish on both case and bezel are perfectly rounded off with hand-finished mirror polished bevels. These polished chamfers can be found throughout the watch; on the machined indexes, the hands, the stainless-steel bracelet and the buckle of the new deployant clasp.

The horizontal lines on the dial are one of the watch’s most defining features. To achieve the crisp lines and sharp angles, each line has been CNC machined into the dial individually.

Driving the hands is a Swiss Made Sellita SW200-1 self-winding movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. This new watch houses a highest quality grade “Chronometer” movement. It comes with premium components such as a Glucydur balance wheel which is exceptionally hard and stable, very resistant to deformation, non-magnetic, and non-corrosive.

The movement is completely decorated, has thermally blued screws and is wound by Formex’s custom-built skeletonized rotor. Each one of these movements is certified by the COSC (the official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) and undergoes the meticulous 15-day rate test to ensure extraordinary levels of mechanical accuracy and precision.

The Essence ThirtyNine is exceptionally comfortable on the wrist. For even more wrist comfort, Formex added their patented Carbon Fiber Composite Folding Clasp with its fine-adjustment system, allowing on the go strap adjustment for a perfect fit in all conditions and temperatures.

The leather strap can be changed without the use of any tools and the extremely comfortable and well-built stainless-steel bracelet can be mounted on the watch in seconds. The bracelet features screwed links and a unique micro-extension system to match the comfort of the leather strap.

The Essence ThirtyNine Automatic Chronometer is available for pre-order at the Formex Online Boutique with 4 dial options on the stainless-steel bracelet and 4 leather straps.

The collection is now available starting at $1,280.00 for limited pre-order and will be delivered in February 2021.
