Pilot Chrono 42

The Big Pilot Chronograph

Pilot Chrono 42

Slightly shiny black dial, chronograph counters regressed and the hour indices covered with luminous color - this is what a functional and equally sporty-elegant pilot chronograph looks like.

The Watch

Pilot chronographs fascinate watch lovers for decades. With a diameter of 42.6 mm, this chronograph delights lovers of our classic Series 40 design while fulfilling the desire for a larger watch.

The Pilot Chronograph 42 underlines it's independence through a dial, which dispenses with hourly numbers in favor of luminous indexes.

(DO NOT) REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT

The Dial

A slightly shiny black dial gives this watch sporty elegance, but also good readability - both day and night, because the hour markers are covered with the highest luminous color "SuperLuminova Grade X1".


The Housing

For thePilot Chronograph 42Chronograph we use our big pilot watch case - classical in the proportions and thus clearly associated with our Pilot Chronograph Series 40 - but increased in diameter to a diameter of 42.6 mm according to the size of the stop counters.


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.
