Baselworld 2016: Chronoswiss the King of Regulator

 

 

Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator Jumping Hour

An exciting play on the Regulator is the variant with the jumping hour.

The hours are not displayed as with the “classic” Regulator by sub-dials, but are presented digitally in a window, making it look like a date at first sight.

  • I nice line of good looking Swiss ladies, the issue if you want to date one of them, you need a fat bank account.

  • Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator with 3D effect looks just fabulous, especially in galvanic blue dial.

    But, as Alan Adler has already mentioned, reading time on regulator dials at a glance is rather difficult.

    Thanks a lot Alexander, enjoyed your write-up immensely!

  • The flying Swiss in red gold with galvanic silver dial is beautiful. The three dimensional effect is a tour de force.
    Well done!

  • I’ve had a fascination for regulator dials and have collected four wristwatches of this type. But despite my fascination, the cold fact is that they are substantially more difficult to read.

    When in motion, such as walking or driving, a glance at the dial is not sufficient to tell the hour. Ditto in poor light.
