Craftsmanship from dusk till dawn

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - May 25, 2019:   At first sight, the new special edition is a beautiful marriage between avant-garde design and traditional métiers d´arts, which become evident in the dial sophisticatedly decorated with guilloche by hand. The wave-like pattern is crafted onto the dial in the House of Chronoswiss in Lucerne by means of an ancient rose-engine lathe, and afterwards galvanized blue.
The unusual and intricately designed day/night dome display at the 9 o'clock position is another thing to catch the eye. It was embedded in a half-dome and given a gleaming metallic look with titanium. The stars on the night side even glow in the dark thanks to their Super-LumiNova coating. The luminous white material on the hands and indexes also significantly helps to ensure optimum legibility at night. The day side is a lighter shade of blue. The dial design alone comprises a total of 19 parts.

In terms of colour, the new limited edition focusses on the elegant combination of blue and silver, complimented by a stainless steel case. The limited edition numbers of the 50 timepieces are meticulously painted by hand on the bottom of the day/night display.

Alongside the latter, the Flying Regulator Night and Day also features a 3-day date display at the 3 o'clock position. At the 6 o'clock position, the dial reveals some intense insights. Here, Chronoswiss has artfully uncovered the seconds wheel, on which the funnel-shaped scale draws the gaze almost hypnotically. The day/night display and date are easy to set using the crown.

Apart from the limited edition, three further designs are available in the collection: elegant red gold combined with a matte black galvanized dial, or a sporty stainless steel case with a blue or silver dial. Whatever your choice, you can count on a reliable timepiece at any time of the day or night.
