JS Watch co. Reykjavik Presents Islandus Chronograph Watch

Nov 12, 2010
JS Watch co. Reykjavik, one of the worlds smallest watchmaking companies located in Iceland, unveils its latest timepiece to join the brands most sought-after Islandus collection.

The Islandus Chronograph represents a self-winding mechanical chronograph with a traditional column-wheel. It is created as a perfect timekeeping companion for those fascinated by traditional horological devices.

The watch has maintained the Islandus case featured by the earlier members of the collection. The 44mm case is sculptured from the finest German surgical grade steel, the material often used for medical implants. Its surface demonstrates high-polish finishing.

The face of the chronograph watch is shielded by a curved sapphire crystal provided with multi antireflective coating on the inside. You can admire the movement via the see-through sapphire crystal case-back. The case construction is 50-meter water-resistant.

The heart of the timepiece is the highly-appreciated Valjoux 7750 Chronograph movement that is custom-decorated, incorporates 25 jewels and blued screws and features rhodium plated finish. The movement gives an advantage of a 42-hour power reserve.

The Islandus Chronograph is fitted with the day disk in either Icelandic or English. You will see the day function displayed at the unusual 9 o'clock spot. The date is featured at 6 oclock.

Everyone interested in the timepiece may choose between a variety of colored hands and four different dial colors, Galvanic Black, Silver, Charcoal Gray and White Brilliant, completed with Roman numerals.

The Islandus Chronograph watch is secured to the wrist on a genuine handmade alligator strap or a genuine handmade ostrich strap fitted with a buckle or a deployment clasp.

As the creators of the timepiece say, when you wear it on the wrist, you have a special feeling, as if you were going 60 years back in time and you are wearing your trench coat and Humphrey Bogart hat.

The production of the JS Watch co. Reykjavik is limited to just 100 timepieces per year, every piece hand-assembled from the best materials available and reflecting its creators deep respect for traditional watchmaking.
