Limited special edition marks opening of House of Chronoswiss

Summer 2014: the day has come. After a nine-month renovation, the House of Chronoswiss opens in downtown Lucerne. A special model is being launched exclusively to mark the opening of the new headquarters. Available in a strictly limited quantity, the Sirius Lion Edition pays homage to the city of Lucerne.

With its timelessly elegant design, so typical of the Sirius line, the Lion Edition's perfect harmony, bright dial and applied hour markers make it a captivating timepiece. The lion enthroned on the dial is a reference to the city of Lucerne, which counts the famous Lion Monument as one of its best-loved landmarks. And the House of Chronoswiss is only a stone's throw away – on Löwenstrasse, or "Lion Street". The lion motif, applied in iridescent enamel, is not the only special feature of the model: At the 4:00 marker, the number 16 appears in red, an allusion to the building number of the Chronoswiss headquarters.

The serial number of this limited edition also appears in red at the center of the dial. One hundred watches were produced in stainless steel and 30 in red gold for this limited special edition. The blued-steel hands of the stainless steel watch match the blue of the strap beautifully, while the elegant dark-brown crocodile strap sets off the red gold version to even better advantage. Both types of case come with exclusive packaging that replicates the lion motif. A high-grade steel plaque adds the finishing touch with an engraved likeness of the imposing beast of prey.
