The chronograph heads the lineup of the Military range. It was designed as a sports dress watch with a fully functioning chronograph (stop watch). Built in a surgical grade stainless steel case for robustness and with a black IP coating. It is a modern watch inspired by modern day materials. It utilises carbon fiber for the dial and a choice of a silicon strap or leather strap. It was also designed with an oversized diamond shaped crown for ease of adjusting time. 10atm rating allows flexibility of usage, whether it be for a day behind the wheel of a plane or a sports car. 100pc of this design has been produced and each watch is numbered.
Powering the Chronograph is the Asian version of the venerable 7750 automatic chronograph movement. It is a cam actuated chronograph design with 3 registers at 9, 6 and 3 o’clock. 9 o’clock subdial indicates the running seconds, 3 shows elapsed minutes and 6 shows elapsed hour (12hrs). It is available with a standard raised sapphire or a raised domed colourless sapphire (pictured). Chronograph seconds are indicated by the seconds hand at centre. Pusher at 2 o’clock starts/ stops the chronograph and pusher at 4 o’clock resets it to zero.
The subdials are recessed and finished in a circular pattern with a polished silver ring around it’s perimeter to accentuate them. and give more texture to the dials. The exhibition caseback shows the signed and gold plated rotor that powers the automatic winding mechanism. Chose from a variety of available straps in silicon/ rubber or leather to complete the look of this modern masterpiece.
