Delma Creates Santiago Automatic Chronograph Watch

Nov 09, 2010
The Lengnau-based horological company Delma has proudly introduced its new Santiago Automatic Chronograph watch.

The new Delma watch is a natural choice for contemporary men, who want an elegant model, designed in a classical style.

A delightful duo of exciting exterior and modern technology, this timepiece is proposed with an imposing case, which measures 45 mm in diameter. It is crafted from stainless steel or two-tone yellow gold, which demonstrates a PVD-plated surface.

The case is equipped with a screw-winding crown, located at 3 o’clock. It is supported by two chronograph pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock. The crown, the chronograph pushers as well as the back side of the case are specially sealed to ensure an incredible water-resistance of 500 meters.

The case architecture incorporates an anti-glare sapphire crystal, endowed with a magnifier. The loupe covers an aperture at 4 o’clock, which displays a date indication. The high-grade sapphire glass is held in place by a unidirectional turning bezel, fitted with a black or brown Alu ring.

The bezel forms a noble frame around a perfectly balanced dial, distinguished by honeycomb structure. Black-painted, it is completed with light-tone hour-markers and minute graduation. They cohabit harmoniously with oversized Arabic numerals, featured on the bezel.

The display of the new Santiago Automatic Chronograph watch includes centralized luminescent hands, which mark the progression of hours, minutes and seconds. Additionally, the dial ensures chronograph functions presented through counters, located at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. The eye-catchers of the watch face are red hands, moving around the 12-hour and 30-minute counters. The brand’s logo allied with the information on the model’s water-resistance is featured at 3 o’clock.

The absolute precision of the timepiece is guaranteed by a self-winding Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement. It incorporates a rotor, embellished with waves of Geneva and engraved with a gold-plated logo. The movement also boasts pearled bridges and blued screws, visible through a display back.

Artfully paved with 25 jewels, this caliber beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 45-hour power reserve. It is also endowed with the Incabloc shock-protection system.

The new Delma watch is presented on an elegant steel or bicolor bracelet, which tastefully matches the classic-inspired case.
