Charmex CX Swiss Military Watch™ RALLYE GMT NERO EVO

Swiss watch brand CX Swiss Military Watch™ is best known for the flagship model, the ultimate diving watch 20’000 FEET. Launched in 2009 the 20’000 FEET won the world record for water resistance for automatic diving watches with a Guinness Book of World Records™ approved depth rating of 20’000 feet or 6’000 meters (ISO 6425).

With several other diving and pilots watches already in their collection Montres Charmex SA decided to use their experience in professional grade watches to branch out into the realm of MOTORSPORT timepieces

The RALLYE GMT NERO EVO sets a new standard in its class: the highly scratch resistant DLC plated case, inspired by the heavy duty wheels used in rallye motor sports houses the ETA Swiss Made GMT cal. G10.962 movement and offers a chronograph function in combination with a second time zone.  In addition to this the tachymeter on the dial can be used to compute a speed based on travel time or measure distance based on speed.
Form follows functionality - Montres Charmex SA was not satisfied by simply creating a watch looking like a motorsport timepiece but added several functions vital to both circuit and rallye racing:

The key feature is the leather SMARTSTRAP that sends vital data of its wearer as well as lap time data to a log function on the wearer's mobile phone. In addition the rallye enthusiast may create a roadmap on an app on his mobile phone with the Smart strap alerting the driver upon reaching the waypoints - the first such function seen in any watch.

The sapphire crystal protects an intricately designed dial with a small second hand resembling the spokes of a wheel. The RALLYE GMT NERO EVO is water resistant to 200 meters

The RALLYE GMT NERO EVO is available in five dial colours - silver, black, blue, Monza red and Dakar yellow (all with professional grade luminous Superluminova™ indices) and is sold in a luxurious wooden gift box.

The RALLYE series consists of the following models launched over a period of 12 months:
