The interstellar journey of Chronoswiss continues with a new version of the model Space Timer Jupiter that the brand launched last year. now land on earth Space Timer Jupiter Gold in a solid 18-karat gold case. It must be remembered that Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and the fifth in distance from the Sun. It is an immense ball of helium and hydrogen with a solid heart in its center the size of the Earth. Unlike our planet, Jupiter’s orbit does not last 12 months, but 12 years.
The Space Timer Jupiter shows the hours at 12 o’clock, the minutes and seconds in the center and the moon phases and date at 6 o’clock, all with a regulator arrangement that is already the most iconic DNA of Chronoswiss. Precisely, the difference of this model with the previous ones is that incorporates two functions hitherto unheard of in regulators. In addition, the new model incorporates multiple textures and coatings, combined with a daring 3D architecture.
But the date stamp is not like the others: it floats on a ITR2 disc a creation of carbon nanotubes that allows all possible finishes and colors. For this new version of the model that was born last year, Chronoswiss has designed a translucent date disc that makes it possible to read the odd Arabic numerals in Super-LumiNova, while the even dates are made up of microplanets just 0.6 mm in diameter.
The same material is used for the hour disc. All indications float on polished and beveled bridges, evoking the Open Gear collection. The minutes are read on an inner flange with large Super-LumiNova/Ceramic composite cylinders. The Moon is made of a domed titanium disc that has been thermally colored.
The dial is a representation of Jupiter’s atmosphere. Space Timer Jupiter Gold stands out for a Laser-sculpted dial with a nano-imprint finish. At this nanometric scale, the eye cannot perceive volumes, reliefs, and bumps. Neither craters nor peaks can be captured as on the Moon or on Mars. In the Space Timer Jupiter there is only a diffuse impression of gases, colors and currents. And this process makes each piece unique, due to minute and imperceptible variations.
Driven by the automatic caliber C.308, has a power reserve of 42 hours. Its solid gold case 44 mm It has a double sapphire crystal. Also, the Space Timer Jupiter Gold It is a limited edition of 50 pieces.
