A Watch for Real Men. . . .
The new Urbanic Chronograph is a particularly prominent product. Robust and yet elegant, the case of this genuine men’s watch seems to call for strong wrists but thanks to its ergonomic design also suits the slender arm, giving a pleasant and clean impression. Featuring a stop-second device, the watch consequently comes without a second hand. Combined with the date display being integrated into the hour counter, this results in a clear-cut dial design that ensures perfect readability of the current time and the timer (up to 12 hours). As usual, the second auxiliary dial offers a 30-minute timer scale for improved readability. The automatic SW-50ac chronograph movement is based on a traditional Swiss system. It features an unbreakable Nivarox mainspring, a balance wheel with temperature compensation, precise anchor escapement, and the Incabloc shock protection system. The ultra-reliable movement is housed in a prominent steel case 45 mm in diameter and 15 mm in height. The entire case is securely protected by anti-reflective sapphire glass consistently pressure resistant up to 10 atm, which corresponds to a water depth of 100 meters. The use of square stop buttons suggests a truly sophisticated case design. A precious leather strap suitable for 22-mm lugs fitted with a convenient butterfly clasp complements the design of this fine watch.
