“The horizontal tri-compax layout, very popular among watch collectors, has on Schwaerzler’s work desk been reduced to lines – the raison d’être for the L series. “In design it is much harder to take away than to add. And you should not take away just for the sake of reduction, but to improve the function and the aesthetics”

Glossary

Special characteristic

Caliber C99001

The watch is alive. This movement is specially made to our quality standards by Concepto. It is a manual wind movement with hours, minutes and sweep second. Second stop device, eccentric fine adjustment Etachron, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz, 25 jewels

Special characteristic

elegant pushers in DLC

Here in the black DLC version: The pushers are the direct contact between movement and human. The stop function can be started, stopped and reset. The smooth, unscrewed pushers give the watch a fine retro elegance. This is underlined by the high-curved sapphire crystal, with which the watch slides very gently under cuffs.

Special characteristic

DLC coating

Stainless steel or titanium with a DLC-coating (Diamond-Like-Carbon) stands out via its beautiful grey / black colour. DLC makes stainless steel extremely abrasion and scratch resistant. Moreover, the layer of carbon applied in a state-of-the-art vacuum process is also highly anti-allergenic.
