The C.301 movement is a serious rebuild of a classical movement. As on all Chronoswiss Open Gear regulators, the dial is a hybrid, also serving as a module plate holding the bridges, screws, wheels and jewels – an elaborate 42-part construction on two levels. The upper level features screwed-on skeletonised train wheel bridges and a funnel-like hour display.
Open Gear ReSec Black Ice
The Open Gear ReSec Black Ice is a modern mechanical timepiece with influences from historical watchmaking as well as frozen lakes and heavy metal. It is also a reminder that black can have a near-infinite number of shades, depending on surface, texture and materials.
