Chronoswiss has cooked up a storm with its newly released timepiece, aptly named the Open Gear ReSec Hurricane.
Capturing a tempestuous scenery, the three-dimensional dial is dressed in high-frequency guilloché and doused in a sleek black. The elaborate design features a two-leveled, 42-part construction — from the galvanic black lower level to the screwed-on skeletonized train wheel bridges on the upper. Adorning the display are slightly off-centered hour markers, an open-gear design, and “Trigono” lacquered hands that are highlighted with Super-LumiNova inlays and tips
Housed inside the 44mm DLC-coated stainless steel case, the calibre C.301 automatic movement runs on a power reserve of up to 42 hours. Its intricate centerpiece had been handcrafted at the horologer’s Lucerne atelier, using a century-old rose-engine turning machine. To finish, the timepiece is complete with a hand-sewn tonal strap made of neoprene and calf leather for dark and mysterious appeal.
Currently available via the Chronoswiss official website, the Open Gear ReSec Hurricane is priced at $12,000 USD in a limited run of 50 pieces.
Elsewhere in watches, Accutron and Bulova have revived iconic timepieces that were worn on space missions.
