Chronoswiss Creates Perpetual Calendar Watch in White Gold

Aug 03, 2009
In 2008, both collectors and fans of the Chronoswiss brand were offered an amazing opportunity to enjoy its new fascinating version of an iconic high complication - the classic perpetual calendar with moon phase indication.

In 2009, the graceful spectrum of Perpetual Calendar timepieces by Chronoswiss was enlarged by a novel white gold interpretation, showcasing an extremely stylish black dial.

Similar to other models of the kind, the case of the Chronoswiss Perpetual Calendar watch, sculptured in 18K white gold, measures 40 mm in diameter, without regard to its oversized onion-like white gold crown.

The watch case, featuring a quiet understatement in its exterior, is extremely complex in its construction it is composed of 36 individual parts. Another hallmark of the timepiece is its solid bars, running through the lugs and securing the hand-made alligator leather strap fitted with a folding clasp rendered in 18K white gold.

The black dial, sculptured in varnished silver, provides the watch wearer with the gracefulness necessary for wearing the timekeeping companion at official events, as well as a sporty touch, appropriate under informal circumstances.

The dial of the timepiece
demonstrates blued steel hour and minute hands performed in Poire-Stuart shape along with large white lacquered Roman numeral hour markers. There are pointer-style counters for day of the week, the date, and the leap year cycle, sitting atop the iconic moon phase indicator, located 6 o'clock. A few red contrasts are added to each of them. The moon phase disc moves counterclockwise over the course of the month, featuring the moon and the stars performed in gold against a deep blue background.

The Chronoswiss Perpetual Calendar watch is powered by the automatic C.127 caliber, with a conventional Enicar 165 caliber as its base. It is developed with a Debois-Depraz calendar module, which includes 50 individual pieces. The mechanism in question controls the information in terms of day, date, month, and leap year and corrects its calendar indications when necessary, through the different months and leap year cycles without the watch owners taking part in the process. The balance wheel moves back and forth at 21,600 vibrations per hour.

The Chronoswiss watch boasts a 30-meter water-resistance, which is attainable due to gaskets in the crown and patented screwed corrector pushers directly secured to their tubes.

The watch case is assembled with two sapphire crystals: in the front and the rear side of the case. The latter opens to view the finely finished movement with its gilt-finished skeleton rotor, which reveals the Chronoswiss "C" insignia.
