Chronoswiss expands its Perpetual Calendar series, adding a new model in white gold with a black dial, called the Perpetual Black. The new model joins the existing stainless steel and rose gold versions, each with white dials. Chronoswiss says the new version’s black dial gives it added versatility, allowing it to move easily from the office to everyday wear to dressy affairs.
The Chronoswiss Perpetual Calendar features a dial made from silver with a varnished top and blue steel hands in the “Poire Stuart” style. The new model measures 40mm in diameter with a 36-part case surrounding a Chronoswiss manufacture caliber C. 127. The movement measures 26.2 mm x 5.2 mm and it has 30 jewels. The 18k crown and patented screw-down adjustment pushers do not have to be replaced during water-resistance tests since the gaskets are directly attached to the tubes. This ensures that the watch is water resistant to 30m.
The Chronoswiss Perpetual Black retails for $34,600.
