Replica Chronoswiss Open Gear Resec

The Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec is limited to 50 pieces and presents traditional watchmaking with a modern twist. As Chronoswiss’s CEO Oliver Ebstein puts it, “A mix of new materials, old techniques and contemporary design – this is what it takes to be a modern mechanical brand.”
Chronoswiss presents its latest modern mechanical timepiece: the Open Gear ReSec, where the large minute hand meets a grand competitor taking over centre stage. On the Open Gear ReSec, the retrograde second hand is the leading actor in the chronological play of time.
Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec The Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec is a limited-edition watch with a regulator display and retrograde seconds indication. It is presented in an eye-catching blue CVD coated case. Chronoswiss broke on to the watchmaking scene in 1983 and immediately unveiled the ‘world’s first mechanical chronograph with moon phase indication and clear crystal case back’.
Chronoswiss’ Limited Edition Open Gear ReSec In Blue And Gold is a bold take on a design rooted in classic watchmaking. This regulator timepiece evokes styling cues from past models, but now, it boasts a multi-dimensional blue dial with a variety of finishes
Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec Chocolate Based on the original Open Gear ReSec watch which comes in a plethora of color options – this one looks different. The watch has a striking chilli-red varnished 44mm dial which doubles as the mainplate of the C.301 automatic regulator movement visible through the sapphire caseback.
Chronoswiss powers the Open Gear ReSec Chocolate with the in-house C.301 automatic regulator movement. Visible through the sapphire display caseback, the powerplant is partially skeletonized and decorated with a mix of Côtes de Genève and perlage across the movement plates and bridges.
This is exactly the market into which the new Chronoswiss Flying Grand Regulator Open Gear ReSec fits. When I first received the press release for this watch around its Baselworld 2019 unveiling, I was intrigued by the ambiguity of combining a complication as functional as the regulator dial with the purposelessly delightful addition of retrograde seconds.
