The Zürcher – in a speed bundle

Ski-Speed with Ramon Zuercher and the Modern Chrono!

Ramon Zürcher is a member of Swiss-Ski and a friend of the Maurice de Mauriac family. He wears and loves his Modern Chrono. The idea to share his passions—namely, speed and a great time—with other members of the Maurice de Mauriac family didn’t take long to formulate.

We are extremely pleased and very grateful to Ramon that we are able to offer you something truly unique:

Anyone who buys a Modern Chrono by 31 December 2017 will receive from us a half-day with Ramon Zürcher. Together with the esteemed member of Swiss-Ski, you will travel to a snowy location near Zurich, and Ramon will share with you his substantial knowledge; a body of knowledge and experience that led this speed-specialist to become a member of Swiss-Ski.

Ramon Zürcher and Maurice de Mauriac share a common passion for time. And after a few hours together in the snow, you too will feel it—this passion, this special connection.

You can purchase your Modern Chrono from us personally in our atelier in the Tödistrasse in Zurich or from our webshop right here. Shortly after your purchase, we will contact you directly about the scheduling.

The shared passion about time connects Ramon Zürcher with us. After spending half a day with him in the snow, you will feel the connection.

Glossary

Special characteristic

silvern screw-down pushers

Screw-down pushers confer an additional mechanical aspect to watches. In order to operate the stopwatch function, one has to first unscrew the collar and, then, close it again after stopping it. The crown is always decorated with an M.

Special characteristic

Silver Chrono , screw-down pushers, caseback

Our display back case uses a blue anti-reflective sapphire crystal and thus allow for an unobstructed view of the pulsating calibre. One has the feeling that the soul of the mechanical automatic movement can both be felt and seen. The watch is alive. Together with the possibility of the custom labelled rotor, each watch becomes a truly personal gift – even to oneself.

Special characteristic

ETA 7750 Movement

After the takeover by ETA, the Valjoux 7750 was re-named the calibre ETA 7750. This is quite possibly the most successful automatic chronograph movement of all time. The calibre stands out due to its high degree of accuracy and robustness. It has 25 stones, a ball bearing mounted rotor and a uni-directional winding mechanism. The 7750 has a 1/8-second counter, a 30-minute counter, a 12-hour counter, 28,800 half oscillations per minute and has a power reserve of ca. 44 hours. The loss of accuracy is 1-6 seconds per day. Movement revisions are recommended every 3 to 8 years

Special characteristic

Steel

Not all steels are created equal. We use 316L stainless steel; one of the hardest premium steels in the world. In addition to its hardness and resistance, this high-quality steel stands out because of its finish as well as it very fine silver hue. 316L steel has a significantly lower nickel emission than, for instance, 904L steel, which is also a high-strength steel alloy. This is, for us, a reason to favour 316L stainless steel.
