In 2017, Chronoswiss once more is supporting the Only Watch charity by presenting an extravagant and unique version of its new icon Flying Regulator. This one-off creation in stainless steel with its ultra-hard DLC coating is equipped with a spectacular guilloche dial in flaming red, against which the hands and numerals stand out in bright coral red. This special color combination of different shades of red was inspired by the eternal power of love and passion which is key to almost everything in our lives. These emotions are our most important driving forces and therefore, the red colors seem to be predestined for a timepiece aiming to support such a heartfelt charity as the Only Watch, which also involves a lot of passion and love.
Externally, the Flying Regulator Red Passion shines with its classic DLC coated case, as well as with its elaborate dial construction on several levels, which lends the timepiece a stunning 3-D effect. A glance through the sapphire crystal on the back (which Chronoswiss was the first to introduce in the 1980s) provides a view of the oscillating weight which has been skeletonized and especially crafted for this occasion in the same bright red as the dial. 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, is ticking.
The powerful character of this unique timepiece is complemented by a very special strap, perfectly matching the colors of the dial and case. Hand-crafted in elegant alligator leather it completes the Flying Regulator’s extravagant look. First the alligator skin was dyed red, and in a second step the black color was carefully massaged into the skin´s structure by hand. Apart from the box accompanying this passionate wristwatch, it also comes with a special travel case. It was completely lined with bright red leather in order to match the color theme.
