  • The Formex Essence Chronometer Brown Steel is a phenomenal, stylish, well-made and extremely comfortable high-end Swiss Made watch. To start, the case has a unique suspension system which helps absorbs any impacts but also to provide comfort when moving. To complement the comfortable case the watch features a refined metal bracelet with a Micro-extension function. This also shows the level of dedication towards detail that is present throughout the entire watch.

    It doesn't end there, as the watch features a Swiss Made Sellita SW200-1 mechanical (automatic) movement that is COSC certified, ensuring that it runs +6/-4 seconds per day and meets all the strict testing criteria of the Contrle Officiel Suisse des Chronomtres.


    Of course the watch features all the things you'd expect from a high-end watch, such as BGW9 Super-LumiNova lume, sapphire glass with an AR coating and 100 meter water resistance.


    A lovely watch for nearly any occasion that combines style and comfort and does so at a very reasonable price.

  • Guinand Chronograph DuoIndikator

    Ref. No. 40.50.04 Duo Indikator

    Serien Nr. 02x80

    Anthrazitfarbenes Zifferblatt mit Sonnenschliff, silberne Chrongraphenzaehler und ein kleiner roter Punkt, der auf die Sekunde genau die Zeit anzeigt. Eine neue Aera der Zeitmessung im groszen 42er Format.


    Das Zifferblatt

    Das Zifferblatt des Modells gehoert sicher zu den aufwendigsten in der Uhrenbranche. Von Hand aufgelegte und mit Leuchtmasse ausgelegte Stundenindizes , galvanisierte Oberflaechen, abgeschraegte Kanten fuer die Datum-und Wochentaganzeige lassen den immensen Aufwand bei der Herstellung der Zifferblaetter hier in Deutschland erahnen.


    Die Indikator-Funktion erfordert aber auch auf der Unterseite des Zifferblatts besondere Konstruktionsfinesse. Die Uhr sollte schlieszlich, trotz der voellig neuen Anzeige der permanenten Sekunde nicht hoeher bauen.


    Das Gehaeuse

    Fuer den Duo-Indikator haben wir ein voellig neues Gehaeuse konstruiert, klassisch in den Proportionen und damit eindeutig zu unserer Fliegerchronographen-Serie 40 zugehoerig, aber entsprechend der Groesze der Stoppzaehler im Durchmesser auf einen Durchmesser von 42,6 mm angewachsen.


    Das Werk

    Das Valjoux 7750 gilt als das ausgereifteste und zuverlaessigste Chronographenkaliber ueberhaupt entwickelt in den 70iger Jahren des vorigen Jahrhunderts und kontinuierlich verbessert, ist es wohl die robusteste Antriebsquelle fuer einen mechanischen Fliegerchronographen. Die ETA, Hersteller des Uhrwerks, liefert Guinand das Uhrwerk fuer diese Uhr in einer finissierten Ausfuehrung mit Perlagen, Genfer Streifenschliff, geblaeuten Schrauben und Glucydur-Unruh.


    Bei Guinand wird jedes dieser Uhrwerke noch einmal in 5 Lagen reguliert bevor die finale Endkontrolle der Uhr mit einem mehrtaegigen Gangtest abschlieszt.

    Our HS100 model pays homage to the late 1960s/early 1970s and a pilot chronograph from that era designed by Helmut Sinn. We have carefully updated that model and released it in a limited edition of 100 items. With a date display at 4 o'clock and an automatic movement, the HS100 is state-of-the-art. The watch still boasts the little white subdials with the characteristic colour of the hands and the striking red and white zebra design of the minute scale. The face is protected by a domed, anti-reflecting sapphire crystal. The limited edition number XXX of 100, as well as the model designation, are engraved between the lugs. This watch is also made by us in Germany and, to distinguish it from the old models which were originally produced in Switzerland, Guinand Frankfurt am Main is engraved on its face.
