A Very Nice Piece of Art
“The Three Apes” with reference CH-6721R-OW2013, is a piece of art dedicated to the traditional crafts of guilloche main, skeletonization and fire enamel.
The casing is a solid 21-part case in red gold (18-karat). It is polished with a width of 44 mm and a height of 11.10 mm. Covering the dial is sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The crown is typical of a number of Chronoswiss previous offerings, solid onion-shaped. Meanwhile, screw-in back with sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating allows you to see the movement in the watch. Water-resistant to 3 atmospheres.
The unique thing about this piece of art is the incorporation of various demanding techniques in one watch. The dial of the watch is lavishly decorated with guilloché main and topped with a transparent fire enamel. The three apes featured on the dial are a symbol of denial.
Using the ETA 6498, manually wound, 17 jewels, 40-hour power reserve as a base, Chronoswiss lavishly decorated and later embellished it with guilloché décor. All this made purely by hand.
