Chronoswiss Sirius Flying Regulator

Classic and yet completely different: the new Sirius Flying Regulator features a “flying” minute dial and sub-dials for hours and seconds, which stand out from the guilloche base. The high-quality, slightly curved sapphire crystal further draws attention to the dial’s three-dimensionality. Inside this exquisite watch, the tried and tested manufacture calibre C.122, which already moved the legendary Régulateur Automatique, the first automatic model featuring a regulator-style dial by Chronoswiss, can be seen through the glass back.
Externally, the Flying Regulator shines with its classic stainless steel or red gold case as well as with its dial featuring the characteristic Flying Regulator signature guilloche, which has been specially designed for this line in the studios of Lucerne-based House of Chronoswiss. This guilloche pattern is made even more stunning by electroplating which enhances the dial in either silver, black or a very dark midnight blue. For a sportier look, the Flying Regulator is also available with a DLC-coated stainless steel case giving it a dark, almost ceramic appearance.
The dynamic elegance of this watch is complemented by matching straps with coloured insides and contrast stitching. Made of elegant alligator leather or sporty calfskin embossed with an elaborate woven pattern they complete the Flying Regulator’s extravagant look.
