Chronoswiss unveils the Open Gear ReSec Endorphin

The purple colour of this new timepiece is surely one of the most daring ones that Chronoswiss ever came up with. No wonder: its purpose is to make you forget about the stress of busy days and let you dive into a world of pleasure and excitement. It’s in the name!


ndorphins are hormones that are released by the body in order to help relieve pain, reduce stress and improve your sense of well-being. This natural painkiller is released during pleasurable activities such as workouts or dancing and there are more than 20 types of endorphins in the human body.

Chronoswiss’s latest timepiece is based just on that: with its intense purple case and dial, the ReSec Endorphin will only be produced in 50 pieces. The daring timepiece offers a very trendy vision of Haute Horlogerie in a diameter of 44 mm – for those who are not afraid to free themselves from codes and conventions, and create their own watchmaking path!

The hand-guilloche dial has a dramatic pattern which Chronoswiss respectfully calls: “Moonwalk”. The attention to detail and creativity that lies within the dials, that are solely done in-house in the Atelier Lucerne, reflects the high-end handcraft that the brand is well known for. The purple colour is surely one of the most daring ones that Chronoswiss ever came up with. Naturally the newest ReSec stays true to the Chronoswiss DNA and embodies the classic characteristics of the brand, such as the regulator set-up, the knurled bezel and the onion crown.

This wild, limited-edition timepiece is a pill not everyone might be ready to swallow. But once the endorphins are set free, you fly high in the spheres of high-end mechanical watchmaking...
