Luxury watchmaker Hysek has expanded its timepiece portfolio with the launch of the Furtif Chronographe Grande Date.
The new additions to the wristwatch range, which is ‘one of Hysek’s most imposing designs’, features with all-new style developments. The piece is one of very few Haute Horlogerie automatic chronographs to feature a column wheel, micro-rotor, and “large date” – and be made entirely in-house.
The piece features the Furtif collection’s signature rectangular case and an all-exclusive calibre, made entirely in-house. The first micro-rotor is visible on the dial side, made of solid 22-carat gold and engraved with the firm’s monogram; the second is visible to the rear, perfectly integrated into the movement.
The resulting dual action provides the calibre with a rewind mechanism. Boasting 416 components, the manufacture movement also includes a column wheel chronograph, one of the most prestigious and delicate forms of the complication, and one which Hysek masters to perfection.
The new Furtif comes in two new variations; anthracite and purple. For both, a titanium and rose gold case has been chosen to house the movement.
Alternating satin and polished finishes, it subtly combines the materials used, allowing the rose gold to shine through in select locations on the crown, crown protector, crystal screws, and frame protection. Everywhere else, the dark tones of brushed and polished titanium provide fresh contrast with the anthracite or purple grained dial, accompanied by a matching strap.
