Nordmeer Chrono

The Expedition Chronograph

Nordmeer Chrono

Satin-finished stainless steel, deep blue dial and a striking case - the Nordmeer Chrono stands for the typical virtues of Guinand - special timing instruments for discerning users

Guinand Nordmeer Chrono

The Watch

For many decades, Guinand has been making sporty chronographs for pilots, car enthusiasts and racing enthusiasts, technicians and scientists. The Nordmeer Chrono refers to the deep blue of the sea off Norway, Iceland and Svalbard and draws on a long tradition at Guinand - instrumental timepieces for use in harsh environmental conditions.


The Dial

Dark blue galvanized dial with the currently most luminous white C1 luminous material Grade X1 for optimal readability. Inner scale ring printed with tachymeter scale.

The Movement

The construction of the SW500 is based on the VJ7750 which has been developed in the 70s of the last century and continuously improved. It is arguably the most robust power source for a mechanical chronograph.

Guinand receives this watch movement produced in Switzerland in a finely finished version with a Glucydur balance. At Guinand, each of these movements is once again adjusted in 5 positions, before the final inspection of the watch concludes with a multi-day running test.

The Housing

Our new Nordmeer Chrono is built in a Series 60 case - the case design has proven itself over the past 30 years and has become a true classic. We have updated the housing construction. Sapphire crystal on the front and back, protected pushers and a screw-down crown with triple seal make the stainless steel housing pressure-resistant up to 20 bar.

The lugs are integrated into the housing and thus particularly well protected.

The housing technology

Protected pushers and a screwed crown with 3-way sealing system enables a reliable pressure resistance of 20 bar. FKM-R sealing system for crown and pusher.

Size comparison

Based on the size values, it is not easy to decide whether the watch fits the wrist, or whether it is too big or too small. To make your decision easier, we have mounted the watch on three different wrist widths that correspond to the usual sizes.

How to determine the correct strap length?

Please note that the wrists shown can only give you an approximate impression of the watch on your wrist, as the shape of the wrist is different for everyone, even if they have the same circumference.
