A clear view of the time is certainly the point of a timepiece, but being able to observe how that time is measured sets the Chronoswiss Flying Grand Regulator apart from a typical wristwatch. At first glance, it’s a strikingly attractive watch with the electric-blue 44mm housing accented by a matching Hornback alligator leather band. Closer examination reveals a passion for details. At the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions, the dial allows a glimpse at the movement. A badge at the 3 o’clock mark indicates which of the 50 examples is being examined. The indicators marking 5-minute intervals are crafted of solid luminous materials rather than being mere paint. The retrograde second hand measures from 0 to 30 before instantly sweeping back to 30 to begin the process again. An exhibition case back reveals the inner workings of the extensively modified calibre C. 301 mechanical movement. Featuring a 42-hour power reserve, the movement can be set to display the precise hour, minute and second. The Flying Grand Regulator is a symphony of technology and beauty; Chronoswiss.com.
