Concentration on the essentials

Werksfahrer Chrono 1

The Series 60 were built in the early 80s for a short time and in small numbers with manual wind and Tricompax dial - now finally there is the successor of this design icon as the current Guinand model.

Guinand Werksfahrer Chrono 1

The Watch

For many decades, Guinand has also been producing sporty chronographs for motorists and racing enthusiasts. In the 1970s, a driver's chronograph with "tachometer design dial". In addition to Guinand, this watch was also produced by the Swiss manufacturer Orfina and offered as a Porsche Design Chrono I on the market. Our Series 60 series is the successor to this legendary sports chronograph. Among watch connoisseurs late versions from the end of the 70s are known with Tricompax dial - this variant was manufactured with a manual wind movement.

With our model 60.50 Tricompax we revive this rare variant in the series 60 again. In contrast to those days, an automatic chronograph movement Valjoux 7753 now drives the hands of the watch.

.

The Dial

Deep black absolutely matte dial with the brightest luminous grade X1 for optimal readability. Internal scale ring with 12 hour markings.


The Movement

The construction of the SW510 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. The SW510 allows the realization of chronographs with Bicompax- and Tricompax dial.

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.

* with the use of SW510A the design of the rotor slightly changed


The Housing

Our new Werksfahrer 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 double 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 Strap

Lederband Chronissimo R

Armband Chronissimo

Our Werksfahrer Chrono fits all our leather and rubber straps with 20mm band lug width. We especially recommend our leather strap Chronissimo which is available both a white contrast stitching or red stitching and is seamlessly integrated into the case of the watch.
