Series 40

The Classic Pilot Chronograph

Series 40

Chronograph watches have been standard equipment of the flying personnel for more than 70 years. Guinand has been producing such watches since the very beginning. Our Model 40 Classic is in this tradition - a chronometric instrument for your wrist!

Guinand Serie 40 - model 40.50.10

40.50.03FR

For many years we have been producing watches with hands in special colors for our customers. The color bright red has proven to be especially rich in contrast on hands. This color is also known as fire fighter red - as a foil on fire fighting vehicles.

In our new model 40.50.03FR, all stop-hands are lacquered in this color and are therefore particularly recognizable in front of the black dial of the watch. The stop second hand also carries an illuminated arrow mark at the end of the pointer.

The Watch

Our Series 40 is the classic among modern pilot chronographs. The design is based on Guinand predecessor models (Guinand model 361,  from the 1970s), adapted to the current needs of today.

Today, as in the past, it is known for its optimum readability, robust design and good wearability. In the cockpit and in everyday life.

 

The Dial

Our Series 40 Series is available in different dial versions. Common to all versions is the high-quality of the dials who are made in Germany and the use of high-intensity luminescent colour.


The Movement

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. ETA, the 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 Housing

The series 40 we manufacture in a well-proportioned yet robust stainless steel housing. The light metal pilot bezel features bidirectional rotation and thus enables you to time short intervals without starting the chronograph allowing short-term measurements of up to 60 minutes without starting the chronograph. Protected pushers and a screw-down crown with double O-ring seal and flank protection provide a reliable pressure resistance of 20 bar.

Both on the front and the back we have equipped the watch with glasses made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. For the dial side, we mounted a slightly curved, anti-reflective coated sapphire glass and for the back a flat glass of the same material. The housing surface is hand-polished, satinized - hand brushed or matted means blasted with fine glass beads, depending on the model. The fact that the case design has barely changed in the past 50 years pretty much speaks for itself –– a true classic needs no improvement!
