Imbued with a creative blend of watchmaking passion, ‘Chrono Théorie’ epitomises the "vision" of the chronograph by the designer VANGARDE.
The face of this piece bears the movement, dial and hands and has been designed to create several levels of structural perception. This feat was made possible by developing an amazing interwoven design.
The interwoven design creates an instantly recognisable whole piece which also has subtly distinguishable subsections. These subsections revolve mainly around the shapes, surfaces and outlines formed by the dial-movement pairing and can be given a fresh twist by moving the hands for an incredibly subtle polymorphic kinetic experience.
The two-tone printing helps identify subsections and create balance. The “seconds” and “chrono minutes” counter hands provide visual timekeeping by masking the circle rather than pointing straight at the markers. The chrono hour counter is put in an anti-clockwise rotation and incorporated by the interwoven printing.
The Calibre V1 has a bespoke skeletonised tri-compax back-plate and bridge allowing the minute dial to be positioned at "3" (originally at "12" on the 7750). All the key components such as the balance wheel, balance spring and spring have been replaced by state-of-the-art components (chronometer range).The movement is assembled with the greatest care and adjusted in five positions.
The surfaces are hand-finished with Geneva stripes, circular graining, and brushing. The gears and rotor have been redesigned to provide a unique view of the escapement and self-winding system. A specially designed black ruthenium galvanising process produces the modern look that is expected of high-end contemporary chronographs.
The ‘Chrono Théorie’ has a 316L stainless steel case cut from a solid block with a monobloc middle case and machined calibre housing (no casing ring). The bezel and screw down back are both polished and fitted with O-rings. The sapphire crystals have a state of the art anti-reflection coating to minimise unwanted glare.
