Luxury Swiss brand Chronoswiss has added another star to its glittering Sirius collection with the remarkably incomparable Sirius Chronograph Moon Phase. The stunning timepiece with, a navy dial chronograph with a moon phase and analog date indicator, completes a trio along with the previous steel and gold white dial options from the fine watchmaker.
Ensconced in a 41-mm steel case stylized with partially knurled edges, polished and brushed finishing, uncommon tipped chronograph pushers, and the characteristic large onion crown, this substantial timepiece comes with a Louisiana alligator strap using long, straight lugs. The blue, partially guilloché-decorated dial shows off an analog date window produced in a vintage style, with a red-tipped crescent moon indicator hand. Inside is a punctuated chronograph minute counter, with applied Breguet hour markers between the quarter hour positions.
With plenty of classical design elements and vintage features that harken back to the first half of the twentieth century, which are nicely juxtaposed with modern finishing, the Sirius Chronograph Moon Phase can take its place among the Lucerne-based manufacture’s iconic creations.
Among the watch functions include hours, minutes, small seconds, analogue date, moon phases, chrono-center second, 30-minute-counter and 12-hour-counter. The watch case is made up of solid 23-part stainless steel case, with satin finish and polished bezel with partial knurling and curved, non-reflecting sapphire crystal. The watch case back too is screwed down with satin finish and sapphire crystal and the watch is water resistant up to 30 meters. Other prominent features of the watch include a power reserve of 46 hours (approximately). Special features such as a skeletonized and rhodium-plated rotor with Côtes de Genève and ball bearing; polished pallet lever, escape wheel and screws; bridges and plates add to the value of this timepiece.
From the very beginning, Chronoswiss prides itself on its high quality mechanical “Swiss Made” timepieces that have been manufactured with components from selected Swiss suppliers only. Many of the brands’ models feature exclusive manufacture movements. Above all, the love for even the smallest detail and the passion for technical precision make their watches so special.
