The story of Chronoswiss is closely related to the history of one iconic timepiece—the Regulator, its first stand-alone model. The brand´s central motif and standard-bearer made its debut in 1988 as the ‘Régulateur.’ At this time, quartz watches were enjoying peak popularity, so it was of the utmost importance that the first stand-alone Chronoswiss timepiece would cause a stir. Thus, founder and watchmaker Gerd-rüdiger Lang took inspiration from the past: He adopted the Regulator-style dial, which had primarily been used on wall clocks, and put it on the wrist. Ever since, the characteristic dial design with its off-center hours and small seconds has been identified with the brand, leaving its mark in the watch industry. Recently, a completely independent collection consisting exclusively of Regulator watches has been developed around this iconic model and continues to grow. So figuratively speaking, the model now embodies precisely the key role that it played on the walls of the watchmakers of the late 19th century, where it set the time and was the reference point for accurate timekeeping. The Regulator has set the pace and become the touchstone for the entire collection and brand.
The iconic model is now all grown up—but it has lost none of its visionary character. With the “Flying” Regulator, it even mastered 3D and is now showcasing multi-level dials and complex movement modifications in true, inimitable Chronoswiss style. In some of the innovative Flying Regulator timepieces, traditional handicrafts such as guilloché have been brought back to life. Complementing the 3D dial constructions, these artisanal techniques make the Regulator watches even more unique.
