Chronoswiss is once more is supporting the Only Watch charity this year by presenting a unique version of its new Flying Regulator. This one-off creation in stainless steel has an ultra-hard DLC coating and is equipped with a spectacular guilloche dial in flaming red, against which the hands and numerals stand out in bright coral red. This special color combination of different shades of red was inspired by what Chronoswiss describe as the eternal power of love and passion.
Externally, the Flying Regulator Red Passion features a DLC coated case, and an elaborate dial construction on several levels, which lends the timepiece a 3-D effect. A glance through the sapphire crystal on the back (a feature Chronoswiss was the first to introduce in the 1980s), provides a view of the oscillating weight which has been skeletonized and specially crafted for this occasion in the same bright red as the dial.
The watch runs on a manufacture caliber C.122, as used in the Régulateur Automatique, the first automatic model featuring a regulator-style dial.
The character of the unique timepiece is complemented by a special strap matching the colors of the dial and case. Hand-crafted in elegant alligator leather, it completes the Flying Regulator’s extravagant look.
The alligator skin was dyed red, and in a second step the black color was massaged into the skin´s structure by hand. Apart from the box accompanying the wristwatch, it also comes with a special travel case, completely lined with bright red leather in order to match the color theme.
Only Watch will be held on November 11, 2017 at 2:30pm in under the patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco in Geneva, Switzerland. Only Watch is a biennial charity auction of unique timepieces created by the finest brands united for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
