Chronoswiss Space Timer Moonwalk

The Space Timer Moonwalk is probably the most complex creation Chronoswiss has ever made.

This timepiece incorporates some typical elements of the brand, thanks to which we immediately feel on familiar ground: The hour indicator at 12 o’clock with a visible gear train, under a bridge that we could already find within the tourbillon models; central minutes and seconds; an onion crown and a 44mm case are similar to the Open Gear collection.

The dial alone consists of 63 components – a record that will be repeated throughout the Space Timer collection from which the Moonwalk comes. At 6 o’clock Chronoswiss has created a moon phase with date – an integrated titanium double complication and a premier for Chronoswiss.

The date is indicated by odd Arabic numerals and for even dates, by steel microbeads just 0.6mm in diameter. They are individually surrounded by a disk of ITR2, a new-generation carbon nanotube-based material. It is eight times lighter than steel and can be polished, sandblasted, painted and satin finished. It is partially skeletonized for the hour display, polished on the front and sandblasted on the back.

For the Space Timer Moonwalk, Chronoswiss has developed a unique guilloche pattern that was made entirely by hand. Hours and minutes are skeletonized and coated with Super-LumiNova.

The second’s hand is hand-bent and has a red tip for easy reading on a midnight blue rim. The last hand, that of the date, is the fusion of the previous ones: Skeletonized, red & luminous.
