Regulator watches remain as a cherished memory to me, repeating a past time with a remarkable arrangement of autonomous registers for the hands. We’ve as of late took a gander at some peculiar ones, similar to the Hamilton Jazzmaster Regulator Cinema and Baume HRS Limited Edition Automatic , however with regards to genuine pieces, Chronoswiss has accepted the style vigorously. Back in 1987, it was the first to create a regulator wristwatch, the Régulateur, and has progressed the style with restless plans like the Flying Regulator Open Gear and Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton Limited Edition . Indeed, the new 2019 Limited Edition is an advancement of the last mentioned, adding striking tones and differentiations to the more conventional silver stylish. Different models in the reach have a comparable vibe with particular shading plans, however its most recent with a sprinkle of yellow and red may be its generally contemporary, might I venture to say ‘youthful’ edition in the Flying Regulator Skeleton line?
The 21-section tempered steel case stays standard across the arrangement at 44mm in breadth and 12.48mm in tallness. Other standard highlights incorporate knurling around the top and base edges of the case and larger than usual onion crown, alongside strong, bending drags that append to the crocodile Hornback tie (with collapsing catch) by means of uncovered screws. You will not confuse a Chronoswiss with some other brand. It’s water-impervious to just 30m, so don’t stress over downpour, however leave it inside if taking a swim.
The champion highlights for mid 2019 are the tones, supplanting the silver dial and blue components from the previously mentioned Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton Limited Edition with dark, yellow and red. This gives an engaging differentiation to the basic silver skeletonized development and makes more discernable profundity. Poire Stuart-style hands are again present, however the traditionalist dull blue from the previous model has been lit up with red. The hour hand sits in a raised pipe sub-dial at 12 o’clock with another yellow shade, while the seconds hand sits in a more modest, more curbed dark sub-dial at 6 o’clock.
The conspicuous moment hand is brought together and stretches out to the dial’s edge, however there’s an intriguing little sub-dial encompassing its middle. It has a transformed moment scale that the hand’s stabilizer follows, likewise portraying the minutes. Excess, however cool meticulousness. The new shading range offers a bolder, more isolated perspective on the dial’s components, and to finish things off, the 35 numeral on the external moment scale is yellow too (a marginally tardy gesture to the brand’s 35th anniversary).
The heart of the piece is the skeletonized, hand-wound Chronoswiss type C. 677S. In light of the Unitas 6498 development, it’s been vigorously changed in-house in Lucerne, Switzerland with the regulator module itself being completely evolved in-house. It has 17 gems, beats at 18,000vph (2.5Hz) with a 46-hour power save. Extra highlights incorporate an Incabloc stun assurance framework and stop-seconds system. Seen from the sapphire show caseback, an exceptional, adjusted extension configuration, swan neck regulator and openwork tasteful are universes from the base Unitas.
The Chronoswiss Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton 2019 Limited Edition, as the name recommends, is limited to just 30 pieces with the individual number hand-painted on the correct focus of the dial. The watch retails for CHF 9,150, equivalent to the next steel variations in the Flying Grand Regulator Skeleton arrangement.
