Cronoswiss - Grand Regulateur Chronometre

The BaselWorld 2006 witnessed the introduction of a new Cronoswiss timepiece - the Grand Regulateur Chronometre.

The story of the timepiece started back in 1994. Then, the creation of the brand paid tribute to the past era of pocket watches worn by our ancestors on the chain. The Grand Regulateur appeared in a limited edition of 300 pieces. In fact, the timepiece could be worn on a wrist as it was provided with one more case and a bayonet connector. It was powered by the hand-wound caliber C.1722 R produced by the Minerva movement manufacturer.

Grand Regulateur Chronometre launched in 2006 continues the tradition of hand-wound timepieces that started from developing the Regulateur introduced in 1987. Cronoswiss watchmakers decided to revive the Grand Regulateur as the new era in watchmaking implies new horological standards, and especially in relation to the case size.

Gerd-Rudiger Lang established the tradition of developing aesthetically appealing timepieces. The Regulateur Automatic equipped with the automatic caliber C. 122 implied the case size limitation. If the brand's watchmakers enlarged the case's diameter, it would lead to considerable empty space left inside the case. Moreover, the case's growth would influence negatively the beauty of the watch's dial - the hour- and seconds-scale would be shifted to the center. Having considered everything mentioned above, the Cronoswiss watchmakers made their mind to develop novel Grand Regulateur Chronometre.

The new Grand Regulateur Chronometre has been created in the distinctive style of the brand. It is housed inside an impressively over-sized case measuring 44 millimeters in diameter. The heart of the timepiece is the hand-wound movement C.673. It is noteworthy that the base of the movement is ETA. In addition to that, the movement of every Grand Regulateur Chronometre timepiece is subjected to the most rigorous tests to receive the prestigious COSC - the official Swiss Chronometer Control - that guarantees supreme and long-lasting accuracy of the movement. The movement is provided with Incabloc shock absorber. It comprises swan-neck precision regulator and Glycydur-balance. The pallet, pallet-wheel and screws are thoroughly polished, while the plate is circular grained , and the bridges feature Geneva-brush polish. The movement offers about 40-hour power reserve.

The novelty Regulateur has an advantageous peculiarity if compared to all other Cronoswiss Regulators produced earlier - its bezel features the Superluminova markings providing great visibility. If the watch's owner turns the bezel, the timepiece will perform simple chronographic functions - it is necessary to position the marker across from the minute-hand and then it will be possible to see how much time has passed since the moment of setting.

The dial of the timepiece catches attention due to fine guilloche pattern. The hours are displayed in a separate counter with elegant Roman numerals in the upper half of the dial, while the seconds are featured in the counter in the lower half. The counters are embellished with their own guilloche. The minutes hand travels around the scale at the edge of the dial in conventional manner.

The original massive turnip-shaped crown catches attention in particular.

The Grand Regulateur Chronometre is available in platinum version in a limited edition of 99 pieces. There is also a variety of white gold, rose gold, gold and steel models.

The one-sided non-reflective sapphire crystal covers the dial and the screw-on case back. The case is 30 m water-resistant.

The Cronoswiss Grand Regulateur Chronometre is presented with Louisiana-crocodile strap that goes with folding clasp or metal bracelet. The timepiece has become a worthy successor of the preceding Cronoswiss Regulateur models, having remained devoted to the brand's traditions yet corresponding to the latest standards of horology.
