Swiss luxury watch brand Chronoswiss presents Open Gear ReSec Aurora, a mechanical wristwatch inspired by the captivating Northern Lights.
The latest Open Gear ReSec watch from Chronoswiss comes with a color-changing, handmade Guilloché dial. Enhanced with Chemical Vapor Deposition, the dial comes to life depending on the incidence of light.
To create the color change reminiscent of the the aurora borealis, the dial was hand-cut on a century old Guilloché machine. In addition to the color change and hand Guilloché, this new timepiece features the 3-dimensional regulator construction with a retrograde second and exposed mechanics.
The Aurora combines progressive design with the brand’s classic style elements, such as the fluted bezel, onion crown and straight lugs. The massive Super-LumiNova ceramic blocks shine bright and bring light to the darkness of icy polar nights.
The Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec Aurora watch is a limited edition of only 50 watches worldwide.
