However, it’s the sapphire blue dial that steals the spotlight, offering a mesmerising backdrop to the intricate displays. This bold colour choice, coupled with the traditional guilloché decoration, showcases Chronoswiss’s ability to bridge the past with the present.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the 17-piece stainless steel case measures 42mm in diameter and 14.5mm in height, boasting a variety of finishes that enhance its robust personality. With water-resistance up to 100 meters, the case ensures durability without compromising on style.
