Two New Design Chronographs for Raidillon

Español Pусский
March 2015

Inspired by racing circuits, the index and details in relief go around the dial like the rumble strips on the sides of the track.

On the first counter, the geographical coordinates of the Raidillon sliding point are indicated as a reference. The circular area at 3 o’clock marks the turn into the famous bend, with the name ‘Raidillon’ and the rumble strips in a contrasting colour.
The counter at 6 o’clock reminds us of the Belgian origin of the design, and its ‘Swiss Made’ fabrication. Then the last counter at 9 o’clock on a white background refers to the white circle where racing cars’ numbers were displayed on their doors and bonnets.

The double-depth dial has a circular brushed metal effect on the upper section, with the legendary ‘55’ at 11 o’clock.

2 styles: black and red for fans of classic motor sports, blue and yellow for the modern hybrid new wave.
