Lucerne based Swiss luxury watch brand Chronoswiss has launched the new Purple Panther edition of its Flying Regulator Open Gear model.
The Purple Panther has a 41mm diameter black DLC-coated case. With its daring purple CVD-coated dial, the Purple Panther is not only a colourful timepiece; it is also a celebration of handmade Guilloche, made in the Atelier in Lucerne.
The Flying Regulator Open Gear Purple Panther embodies the ongoing evolution of the brand and yet stays true to the typical Chronoswiss DNA. The multilevel Regulator construction of 42 parts allows uncovered views of the mechanics.
Inside this watch beats the automatic calibre C.299, which features a skeletonised rotor that is equally CVD coated in purple. This timepiece is limited to 50 pieces only.
