SplitRock MDA Full-Black Watch From Pierre DeRoche

Jul 09, 2009
Pierre DeRoche has recently unveiled the SplitRock MDA Full-Black Chronograph at Baselworld 2009.

The model in question exposes a long rectangle stainless steel case, sized 46 x 31.6mm and treated with PVD coating, which ensures avoiding any risk of scratching. The finish performed in black is polished and brushed.

The dial demonstrates a superb black guilloche pattern, black steel hands and black hour markers. A few red accents - the medium date, chronograph hour and minutes hands - are added to the dial to contrast against its black background.

The hands and hour markers demonstrate black Superluminova application.

The chronograph located at 6 oclock has one counter only. It comprises three concentric hands: a chronograph hour, minute and seconds hands.

The main dial features no seconds hand, meaning that the seconds should be read off the small seconds display which constitutes a part of the chronograph counter. By starting the chronograph, you temporarily turn off the small seconds function to be able to use the hand for counting chronograph seconds.

The chronograph push-pieces another extraordinary element of this watchs design are placed on both left and right sides of the case, contrary to the conventional 2 and 4 o'clock positions.

The date is visible through the medium date exhibition window located at 12 o'clock. The watch houses a unique automatic winding Dubois Depraz calibre, distinguished by impressive embellishment and an etched cut-out oscillating weight. The timepiece provides 30-meter water-resistance. The black crocodile leather strap fitted with steel folding clasp demonstrates red contrast stitching.
