Paying Homage to Transparency
Within the classical part of the collection, Chronoswiss has a long history in creating skeletonized chronographs. The first one called Opus was launched in 1995 and even happened to be the world ́s very first automatic skeletonized chronograph manufactured in a series ever. The principle of transparency can be extended on the brand ́s history of having been the first with sapphire glass back, or - even further – to its communication policy towards the public.
The timepieces within the sportive Timemaster line, however, had never been equipped with a skeletonized dial so far. Until, for the first time ever, a new skeletonized version of a Timemaster chronograph debuted within the Chronoswiss collection at Baselworld 2014, allowing an unencumbered view into the ticking heart of the watch – a fascinating chance to see inside the filigreed, decorated movement.
This striking timepiece comes in a stainless steel case with a DLC-coated bezel, lending it not only dynamic visuals, but also robust character. DLC (diamond-like carbon) is extremely hard and thus defends against scratching. The bezel also features a five-minute scale boasting Super-LumiNova inlays. In addition to the chronograph function, the date is displayed within a subdial positioned at 3 o’clock.
The Timemaster Chronograph Skeleton is available in black with white Super- LumiNova, allowing for excellent night reading due to the high contrast levels. Attention to detail is also evident on the screw-fastened back of the solid chronograph case, which is adorned by an emblem with an elaborately engraved turbine design. In addition to the characteristic prominent, screw-fastened onion- shape crown, this particular decoration further enhances the sportive character, since it pays homage to the inspiration for the Timemaster models which were pilot watches from the early 1940s.
