Galvanic silver-plated dial with sunburst decoration and manually applied indexes. Bezel with 12h-numbering, recessed black stop counters - inspired by the 1960s classics

Guinand Chrono Panda Monte•Carlo in full width

The watch

A silver-plated dial with sunburst decoration combined with black subdials - a sport chronograph cannot be more classical. A 12-hour bezel for reading a 2nd time zone, the in-hand tachymeter scale for determining speeds. The date as a modern supplement well readable but optically reserved. Modern numbers on the bezel and the auxiliary dials and our the series40 case with crown protection. Our model Chronopanda Monte Carlo combines everything that makes a watch the modern classic. Decorated automatic or manual movement with Glucydur balance.

The details

Panda dial chronographs first appeared on the market in the 1960s. Today, these classics are among the icons of the watch world. Helmut Sinn, former owner of Guinand, had already taken up this idea and introduced a model with a silver dial and black totalizers. With the Monte Carlo this watch revives in a contemporary form. As in the past, the dial is galvanically silver plated and sunburst. The chronograph counters are slightly recessed, provided with fine grooves and galvanized in black, which means twice as much effort in dial production.

The dial

The dial of the Monte•Carlo is built with much effort and attention to details. The complexity is surpassed only by the appliqués - hand-applied hourly indices which are riveted through small holes with the back of the dial.

The bezel

With this clock, what is surely striking is the rotating bezel with 12-hour division. Today, this bezel version is very rarely - if ever to be found, because the hourly division is executed as a count-down, which means the numbers fall clockwise. This bezel is designed to remind you of the end of events lasting more than 60 minutes. Example is here an event planned with 6 hours duration. At the beginning of the event, the bezel with the corresponding hour mark (here 6 hours) is set to the current position of the hour hand. When the hour hand reaches the position of the triangle on the bezel, the time has elapsed. The chronograph function can be used independently to measure other times e.g., lap times.

The case

We manufacture the Chrono Panda Monte Carlo in a well-proportioned yet robust stainless steel housing, pressure-resistant up to 20 bar, with crown protection, protected pushers and sapphire crystal on the front and back.

The movement

The Valjoux 7750 is regarded as the most matured and reliable chronograph caliber ever - developed in the 1970s and continously 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.
