Chronoswiss Flying Regulator Open Gear Pink Panther Limited Edition

With the Flying Regulator Open Gear Pink Panther, Lucerne based brand Chronoswiss continues its strong tradition with a regulator set-up on distinctive three-dimensional hybrid dials made of handmade guilloché coated with contemporary materials in strong colours.

This modern mechanical regulator watch features a black 41-millimetre DLC-coated case with a sparkling pink CVD-coated dial. The Chronoswiss Open Gear Pink Panther is not only a colourful timely statement; it is also a celebration of handmade guilloché.

The pattern laid down with the aid of a century-old rose machine features a high amplitude – the distance from the centre towards the perimeter – and short length; thus the light reflects vividly while giving you the illusion of a sparkling chessboard.

In 1988 Chronoswiss was the first brand to take the regulator to the wrist. And ever since it has undergone a modern mechanical evolution, the most significant aspect is the hybrid dial, which doubles up as a module board for the regulator. The hour hand makes its slow dance inside a funnelled subdial and skeletonised train wheel bridges are held in place by hand-polished screws – in all the watch display is a multilevel construction of 42 parts.

The Pink Panther has a 10-bar (100 meters) watertightness and a double antireflective coating of the sapphire crystal. The timepiece is held in place by a hand-stitched strap with an outer layer of black rubber and an inner, extremely comfortable leather lining.

Its automatic, stop-second calibre C.299 is equipped with a skeletonised rotor, which is decorated with Côtes de Genève and a colimaçon (spiral) pattern. It also carries a pink CVD coating in the same hue as the dial. These colimaçon spirals are also applied to the bridges and plates of the movement.
