Chronoswiss adds two new models to its Grand Regulator series, a collection of primarily 44mm steel watches featuring the watchmaker’s trademark regulator dial arrangement with a large central minute hand and smaller off-center hour hand.

The new Chronoswiss Grand Regulator Cowboy.

One model, the Grand Regulator Cowboy, offers a black case with a skeletonized black dial nicely accented with gold markers and typeface. The Cowboy comes affixed to a brown hornback alligator strap.

The new Chronoswiss Grand Regulator Night Prowler.

The second debut, the Grand Regulator Night Prowlerfeatures a deep blue skeletonized dial, blue accents and markers, and a black case. This model is attached to a black alligator strap.

Both watches are powered by a handsome skeletonized manual-wind movement, C.677S, which Chronoswiss builds from an ETA Unitas base caliber.

The independent Lucerne-based brand has teamed regulator timekeeping with a wide variety of other functions and displays since 1987 when Chronoswiss debuted the first serially produced wristwatch with a regulator-type dial.

In recent years, the Chronoswiss regulator collection has focused on bold, 44mm partially or fully skeletonized manual-wind watches, as well as automatic models in smaller (37mm and 41mm) diameters, many displaying more classical, dressy dials with time-only indications.

Chronoswiss will make each watch a limited edition of thirty pieces.

Price: $13,300.
