An introduction to the brand new Chronoswiss Strike Two

Echoing the pioneering spirit of the ’90s Chronoswiss Tora, the Strike Two series is an homage to the brand’s heritage with the unique horizontal Regulator Setup. The cutting-edge “H2O” and “Golden Gear” models are the first ones in the new line, each limited to just 100 pieces. A new chapter of innovation in the Chronoswiss watchmaking story, written in the heart of Lucerne.

T

he Strike Two is a gateway to the future of timekeeping in Lucerne, embracing the past while forging ahead with groundbreaking design. The distinctive and name giving twin bridges and their exquisite finish showcase a relentless pursuit of perfection. The visible gearwork underneath the hour ring as well as the hand-guilloched small second dial reveal the precision of the artisan handcraft, while the revamped crown design adds a fresh twist to the iconic Chronoswiss style.

Both Strike Two models grace the wrist with a presence that is as commanding as it is comfortable, rising just 12.7mm in profile. They symbolize the fusion of Chronoswiss’s timeless narrative with a bold vision for the future. These watches are more than timekeepers; they are emblems of the passage through time, for those who live at the forefront of the moment.

The heart of each timepiece in this Series is the new Chronoswiss Manufacture Caliber C.6000, developed in collaboration with La Joux-Perret. This new engine is a powerhouse with a 55-hour reserve and a testament to the art of watchmaking, with its ruthenium-coated finish, a tungsten rotor, radial Côtes de Genève and a skeletonized gear train that underscores an unwavering commitment to excellence.

The Golden Gear is an icon of elegance. Its lean and defined silhouette makes a statement of sophistication that cannot be ignored. Clad in stainless steel and golden accents while being set against a dark grey dial, this model is the very definition of luxury. With only 100 available, owning a Golden Gear is a declaration of prestige and individuality.

The H2O model captures the essence of fluidity. Its striking 3D light blue dial is complemented by an alligator-embossed calfskin strap, embodying the spirit of forward-thinking design. Limited to an exclusive run of 100 pieces, the H2O merges timeless craftsmanship with contemporary aesthetics.
