Description:
Limited to 1000 pieces - The new Classic Racing Superfast Chrono Split Second evokes the world of period car races, starting with the famous Dunlop Racing strap featuring a design reflecting the tread of the eponymous 1960s racing tyres.
It is made of natural rubber and fitted with a deployant clasp.
The dial evokes the counters on vintage racing cars, while the minute markers on the flange are reminiscent of the numerals adorning the rev counters and speedometers.
Every last detail of this model – including the racing steering-wheel in DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) blackened steel appearing on the rubber-moulded screw-locked crown, the grooves engraved on the sides of the lugs, as well as the cooling vents and the Allen screws on the bezel inspired by those used on wheel rims – shows another reference to competition cars.
45 mm-diameter DLC blackened steel case, the self-winding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC powers the hour and minute hands, small seconds at 9 o’clock a pointer-type date display - in a subdial at 3 o’clock
The highlight is the split-second chronograph
It enables measurement of either a split time or of two events that begin at the same time but with different durations.
When the mechanism is activated using the pusher at 2 o’clock, the perfectly superimposed red sweep-second hand and the white split-second hand begin running simultaneously.
In the first case, the split-second hand may be stopped by means of a pusher at 8 o’clock moulded in red rubber – another new feature.
In the second, once the split-second is immobilised, another press on the pusher at 2 o’clock stops the sweep-second hand.
Two measurements are thus visible – with the minutes and hours read off on counters at 12 and 6 o’clock – before the mechanism is reset by means of the 5 o’clock pusher.
The case-back is engraved with the inscription Superfast Split Second.
The Classic Racing Superfast Chrono Split Second is issued in a limited edition of 1,000.
