February 14, 2019 - Dubai, UAE: Chronoswiss has launched two new striking examples of the Flying Grand Regulator, sporting the characteristic layered dial construction and iconic guilloche work. Both these exclusive watches are prime examples of the line that has created more than mere ripples in the haute horological world.

Both dressy and with a sporting flair, these models are designed to fit into most occasions with a certain panache. The stainless steel case measures 44mm x 12.4mm. The satin-finished DLC coating adds a powerful look to these timepieces. The extended screwed lugs, and the oversized onion crown are reminiscent of a pilot's watch but fit the watch just fine. 

Both models feature a handsome guilloche dial plate with the next level up being the minute indexed chapter ring for the centrally placed minute hand. Above the chapter ring, you have the hour register under the 12 o'clock position, and the second register above the 6 o'clock position. Both watches feature a break from 9 to 3 o'clock that features the “Chronoswiss” brand name, and the limited-edition number.

These striking twins are powered by the hand wound Chronoswiss Calibre C.678 movement, which is visible through the sapphire case back. Chronoswiss developed its own in-house regulation system utilizing a swan neck regulator – allowing for finer adjustments to the watches' regulation. Additionally, the movement features a stop second mechanism where a slide locks the second's hands when the wearer pulls the crown.

The decoration is well done with the black main plate featuring circular Geneva striping, many visible jewels, and a nice bit of perlage. The brushed or sandblasted gears give a more industrial look to the mechanism, and I find it really attractive. The decoration fits the overall look and feel of the watch, and when paired with the overall aesthetic, there's something intricate to look at no matter the side. The watch beats at 2.5Hz and features a power reserve of approximately 45 hours.
