Chronoswiss Creates Chronoscope CM Watch

May 26, 2009
Chronoswiss has created a new automatic chronograph watch named the Chronoscope CM watch. The abbreviation CM in the name of watch implies the French term "Compteur Minutes." This term is relevant to the function offered by a knurled rotating bezel.

When the watchs wearer sets the diamond-shaped marking on the bezel to the tip of the long blue minute hand, the duration of the timed event is visible at a glance.

The refined round 22-part case of the Chronoswiss Chronoscope CM watch is sculptured in stainless steel or 18K rose gold and measures 42.5mm in diameter. The case features solid lugs fitted with screwed strap bars. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.

The dial of the Chronoswiss watch is shielded by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The upper part of the dial shows the hour counter, while the bottom part shows the subsidiary seconds. The tip of the chronograph hand in the center reaches the blue tachymeter scale found at the edge of the dial.

The originally designed minute hand features two tips - the first tip with a flat part indicates minutes as usual, while the second elongated tip reaches the dial periphery indicating elapsed time with help of the bezel minute scale.

The Chronoscope CM watch accommodates the self-winding C125 caliber. The traditional column wheel of the movement allows to control the chronograph start, stop, and return to zero sequences. The balance is beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The movement gives an advantage of a 35-hour power reserve.

The sapphire crystal case back allows to admire the circular grained plates of the movement, bridges decorated with circular graining and Cotes-d- Geneve, nicely polished screws, and a skeleton gilt rotor.

The Chronoswiss Chronoscope CM watch is secured to the wrist on a hand-sewn alligator leather strap fitted with a buckle crafted in the same material as the case.
