Dubai, UAE, March 10, 2018:  The Regulator was the first stand-alone model in the history of Chronoswiss and in subsequent years, it quickly became the brand´s central motif and standard bearer. It is therefore only logical that the design team pulled out all their stops on the occasion of the model's 30th birthday, and the 35th anniversary of Chronoswiss. And once again, the brand has succeeded in bringing out completely new and surprising sides to their iconic model.
 
Following the revolutionary 3D dials and skeletonizations of recent years, Chronoswiss is now introducing the Flying Regulator Open Gear, providing unexpected insights and undoubtedly causing quite a stir.
 
For this exceptional Regulator, the modification of the movement, which would otherwise be hidden from prying eyes underneath the dial, has not only been made visible but also showcased as a central design element using every trick in the book. This is also why Chronoswiss christened this new model “Open Gear”. Its dial is simultaneously its module board, onto which the train wheel bridges of the skeletonized gears are mounted. These move on four ruby bearings, generating the least possible friction. The train wheel bridges have also been elaborately skeletonized and boast carefully angled and polished edges. Six visually appealing blued screws keep them reliably in their intended place on the dial, once more proving the brand´s credo of functional design.
 
At 6 o'clock on the dial, the Flying Regulator Open Gear reveals an exciting insight. The dial and the bridge have been skeletonized at the height of the small second so that you can see the second wheel in action. As the associated seconds scale – just like the display for the hour at 12 o'clock, by the way – floats above the dial on a funnel-like display, the gaze is virtually drawn towards the inner workings and to the seconds wheel, designed to look like a rotary dial.
When it comes to color, this ingeniously constructed timepiece comes in four different variants – choose from purist stainless steel with dials in galvanic blue, black or silver, or timeless elegance in a red gold case with galvanic silver dial. Super-LumiNova inlays on the hands and indexes always ensure great legibility in the dark.
 
This new model is a pure Chronoswiss development, from the design to the dial module. Its 37 individual parts were manufactured in Lucerne and then assembled in the House of Chronoswiss. The “Atelier Lucerne” mark, resplendent on the dial, is testament to this. Furthermore, the brand's complete prototype construction is now performed in-house.
 
A special edition of the Flying Regulator Open Gear will also be launched to celebrate the brand's 35-year anniversary in 2018. More details will be disclosed soon!
