The new Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec Tiger.

For the latest example, Chronoswiss artisans create the illusion of a tiger fur pattern in guilloché using a rose engine turning machine from 1924. Paired with blackened three-dimensional regulator components, the unique, deep-cut dial almost roars with its dramatic orange and black hue.

The dial, which is actually part of the automatic Chronoswiss C.301 movement, highlights the regulator’s large central minute hand that crosses atop the prominent hour display at 12 o’clock.

Named for its premier function (ReSec stands for Retrograde Seconds), the watch’s jumping seconds hand along the lower half of the dial operates in a half-circle, leaping from the thirty seconds position back to start its arc to complete counting each minute. The leaping hand echoes ‘the ‘danger of the solitary hunter’, as Chronoswiss vividly explains.

The 44mm Open Gear ReSec Tiger, with the familiar Chronoswiss knurled bezel and onion crown, is a limited edition of fifty.

Price: $11,000.
