The H1 CHRONOMETER MYSTIQUE is the latest addition to our H1 watch family. Like the other members, the style-defining simplicity of historical marine chronometers is combined with expressive elegance. With its time display focused on the hours, minutes and seconds, its flat case, and classic wristbands, it is a dress watch par excellence that stylishly complements any outfit, from casual looks to formal evening attire.
Craftsmanship in perfection: The elegant leaf-shaped steel hands beautifully contrast against the mysteriously dark background with its anthracite hues and tiny metallic inclusions. The printed inscriptions are slightly raised, which lends an exceptional dimensionality to the dial. This includes the slender Arabic numerals typical of the watch family. Together with the circulating “chemin de fer” style minute track and the slightly recessed small seconds sub dial located at six o’clock, they further enhance the classic personality of the H1 CHRONOMETER MYSTIQUE.
A harmony of form and function: Like the other siblings of the watch family, the H1 CHRONOMETER MYSTIQUE stands out with its flat, three-piece case polished to a high gloss. It is distinguished by the characteristically contoured flanks, boldly curved lugs, and a notably slim bezel. With a thickness of just 8.5 mm, it feels like a second skin on the wrist. The double anti-reflective sapphire crystal stretches almost invisibly over the mysteriously iridescent dial. In its entirety, the case is reminiscent of a perfectly cut gemstone.
An in-house movement of highest sophistication: While the outer appearance of the H1 CHRONOMETER MYSTIQUE is inspired by the purity of historical chronometers, the manufacture calibre inside is a celebration of the opulent beauty of traditional movement finishing. Among the aesthetic finesses are the finely detailed gear train bridge, the dual sunburst finish on the winding wheels, the hand-blued screws, the gold-set and screwed Chatons, and the minutely bevelled angles. Every surface is manually finished with the highest attention to detail. The calibre itself is based on the legendary historic hand-wound AS 1130 movement but has been constructively optimised and upgraded to meet modern-day standards. In accordance with the requirements of the Hamburg-based Deutsche Seewarte (German Naval Observatory), it is fine-adjusted in six positions and tested for 1000 hours. The swan-neck adjustment is another sophisticated highlight, as it enables the particularly precise regulation of the accuracy within the range of seconds. For this special edition our in-house chronometer caliber HUW 1130 Premium is adorned with a black rhodium coating and crewed gold Chatons.
