Anthracite-colored sunburst dial, silver chronograph counters and a small red dot that accurately indicates the time to the second. A new era of timekeeping in the big 42er format.
Our Duochronographs have inspired watch lovers for many years. The reduction to two stop totalizers allows not only a better readability of the dial but also a particularly balanced dial design. In the case of the indicator, we have extended the functionality of the watch by displaying the seconds. By the indicator display you have the seconds display of the time always in view without being distracted by the sub-dial of the usual small second. The indicator display not only displays the passing seconds, it also clearly indicates the beginning of a new minute.
How do you show the running of a watch, without the chronograph usual "small" second hand at the 9 o'clock position? This question has driven us to Guinand for some time - with the indicator display, we have found the right answer. A display that does not bother the two large stop-totalizers while preserving the classic look of a chronograph. The indicator display shows the current second via a small window at the 8 o'clock position. The window fills in the course of a minute continuously in high-contrast red.
The exact German name for such a display is "Schwallpfeil" and was used over decades for audio devices for labeling the volume control. We have taken up this principle here. At exactly 60 seconds, a vertical white line indicates the beginning of a new minute.
The dial of the model is certainly one of the most elaborate in the watch industry. Hand-applied and luminous hour indices, galvanized surfaces, chamfered edges for the date and day of the week display the immense effort in producing the dials here in Germany. The indicator function also requires special design finesse on the underside of the dial. After all, the clock should not build higher despite the completely new display of the permanent second.
For the DuoIndicator we have designed a completely new housing - classically in proportions and thus clearly associated with our pilot chronograph series 40 - but increased according to the size of the stop counter in diameter to a diameter of about 42.6 mm.
The Valjoux 7750 is regarded as the most matured and reliable chronograph caliber ever - developed in the 1970s and continuously improved, it is probably the most robust power source for a mechanical Pilot Chronograph. The ETA, manufacturer of watch movements, supplies Guinand with the movement for this watch in a decorated version with Perlage, Geneva stripes, blued screws and Glucydur balance.
At Guinand each of these movements is regulated once again in 5 positions before the final control of the watch ends with an accuracy test of several days.
The DuoIndicator model has 22mm wide lugs to which all our 22mm leather and rubber straps will fit. Especially for this watch, we have developed our new vintage leather strap made of vegitably tanned cow leather. This band makes the DuoIndicator a sporty timepiece.
