Wyler Genève presents a new version of its Code-R chronograph. The watch, in brushed titanium, features the brand’s familiar shock-absorbing case, but with a new dial design. The case measures 52.10mm by 43.50mm and has been designated “Code-R.” This moniker will be applied to all collections for which it is used.
In this latest incarnation, the Code-R case is finished in brushed titanium with brushed titanium pushers and crown protector and a rubber-coated titanium crown. Four sprung-mounted titanium screws at the corners of the case fix the sandwich construction of titanium plates, carbon fiber frame and titanium container together to provide the shock-absorbing function.
Recalling the brand’s El Camino Real model, the dial of this chronograph features a one-piece applique that comprises the rings for the continuous seconds and chronograph counters, 11 integrated hour markers and an over-sized Arabic 12. This rhodium-plated element has a sunbrushed finish that contrasts with the black dial, with orange SuperLuminova dots used for the hours. Brushed rhodium-plated skeleton hands with orange SuperLuminova tips complete the look. A sectorial date window at 4.30 indicates the day’s date with the previous and following dates visible to avoid any confusion when the date is changing.
This new model is powered by a self-winding Swiss-made chronograph movement with a 42 hour power reserve. The oscillating mass in drilled blackened heavy metal, and a white Wyler Genève inscription is visible behind a transparent sapphire crystal window in the case back. The movement, suspended in a sealed titanium container, is guaranteed water resistant to 50 meters. The watch is fitted as standard with a black rubber bracelet with push button-operated foldover clasp in steel and titanium. As with all Wyler Genève models, it comes with a 2-year warranty.
