Hands-On With The Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator

Hands-On With The Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator

Best Watch

I previously shared my contemplations on this year’s BaselWorld show half a month prior ( in this article ) where I momentarily referenced Chronoswiss. In the same way as other different brands, Chronoswiss snatched back to one of their unique models: the Régulateur. In any case, Chronoswiss rebuilt their assortment of watch manufacturing plant and uses two columns: Sirius and Timemaster. These names were utilized for explicit watch manufacturing plant before, yet the assortment turned out to be large to such an extent that they utilized these names as ‘families’. You could say that the energetic Chronoswiss watch manufacturing plant have a place with the Timemaster assortment and the exemplary watch industrial facility to the Sirius collection.

I’ve never been a major devotee of the Timemaster and that didn’t change with the expansion of some more current/refreshed looking games models. I partner Chronoswiss with exemplary watch manufacturing plant like the Régulateur, Opus, Delphis, Chronoscope and so on and that’s what I additionally really like to be honest.

So to my large amazement, Chronoswiss showed us some great Régulateur models, or to talk in right terms: Siruis Flying Regulator, Sirius Flying Regulator Jumping, Sirius Régulateur Jumping Hour, Sirius Artist Régulateur Jumping Hour, Sirius Regulateur Classic and Sirius Régulateur Manufacture. The last two referenced models aren’t new, yet Chronoswiss had them on the table in any case so we could examine those too.

Today, I am discussing the Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator. The watch production line that I like(d) best from the (new) Chronoswiss assortment, so without further ado:

Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator

If you are somewhat more into watch production line you may perceive the dial with the run of the mill Régulateur spread out, Chronoswiss case and onion crown. In the event that you are truly into watch processing plant and know a digit about Chronoswiss, you may even perceive the C122 on the dial. This type C122 returns to the main programmed variants of the Chronoswiss Régulateur. The main Chronoswiss Régulateur watch industrial facility (presented in 1987) were outfitted with a hand-wound development, in view of the Unitas 6376 movement.

A few years after the fact (mid 1990’s), Chronoswiss began utilizing the C122 programmed development. This development depended on the Enicar 165 type. Organizer and watchmaker Gerd R. Lang two or three those suspended Enicar developments and utilized them for the Chronoswiss Régulateur. It appears to be that they had enough in stock to revamped them to today’s taste and norms and use them in the new Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator as well.

Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator – C122 movement

As a side note, I was shocked to see that the most fundamental variant of the Régulateur, the Chronoswiss Sirius Régulateur Classic (retails for 3780CHF) doesn’t have this C122 development. The Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator fortunately does, yet I can’t help thinking about why this Régulateur Classic is viewed as ‘classic’ when it doesn’t have that Enicar (or hand-wound Unitas development for that matter).

Another significant change between the primary Chronoswiss Régulateur models and this new Sirius Flying Regulator is that the bezel is smooth rather than begat. I really like the smooth bezel a great deal, it is somewhat simpler on the eyes. Particularly with a layered dial and engraved example on the lower dial, an authored bezel would be too much.

Old versus New

The dial of the Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator is astounding. As you can see on , this new model comes in six unique renditions. The treated steel model comes in this blue dial and a silver dial. The gold variant comes with a silver dial and a dark dial and the dark rendition (DLC) comes in a lively form with red accents on the dark dial (and calf calfskin lash) and a dark dial with blue and yellow accents on a croc tie. The blue variant I am discussing today is simply the one I would like. The dial is stirred metal with a guilloché lower dial and an upper dial with minutes, hours and seconds scale printed. There is a little grain impact in the upper dial(s).

The upper dials for the hours and seconds having this gliding or – flying – impact utilizing scaffolds to lift the three circles from the lower dial. It takes a couple of seconds to become accustomed to peruse the time along these lines, yet soon you will discover that it is in reality beautiful valuable, as there are no hindering hands. As you can see on the comparison picture (second above) you will see that Chronoswiss remained consistent with the plan of the hands on the primary renditions. These hands are pleasantly bended and the huge moment hand was bowed by hand.

I got my own Chronoswiss Régulateur in 1999 and it is a 1993 model all things considered. It is really a similar model as we highlighted in this article a couple of pictures above. I seldom wear it as the case width is 38mm however the way that my significant other pretty much seized it likewise assumes a part. This new Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator has a case width of 40mm and is 11.8mm thick.

The 40mm size is ideal for me, for a dress watch manufacturing plant Although 38mm is alright ish, 40mm is on the more secure side. The onion crown is likewise somewhat greater than it used to be and is along these lines simpler to handle and utilize. Notwithstanding, I generally recommend to take your watch processing plant off your wrist prior to working the crown. By utilizing power from the point with the watch processing plant on your wrist, you may harm the winding stem. 40mm additionally permits the decently ‘busy’ dial to have somewhat more space and keep it from being seen as cluttered.

Attached to the watch processing plant is this excellent blue croc lash. The watch industrial facility is accessible with pin clasp yet in addition with collapsing fasten. Presently I do lean toward pin locks as a rule, however I have the Chronoswiss collapsing catch too and it is very acceptable. It is generally level, so no massive steel part within your wrist.

With a rundown cost of CHF6810 Swiss Francs (€6860 Euro) for the hardened steel models this watch processing plant is positively more costly than the fundamental variant (Sirius Régulateur Classic) for CHF 3780 Swiss Francs or the Régulateur Manufacture for CHF5800 Swiss Francs however compared to the last one, the dial has a gigantic effect. The Sirius Régulateur Classic is a fascinating watch plant for CHF3780, yet it doesn’t come with the C122 development (Enicar). The collapsing fasten has an extra cost of CHF300 Swiss Francs. Regardless of whether you think that its advantageous to pick that choice is up to you obviously. I don’t lament purchasing mine.
