AC Schintzer is a name that is usually associated with tuned up BMWs, but they seem to be joining the accessory circus with their third installment of the Chronograph, a watch signed by the famous tuner. The new Chronograph 3 will be built as a limited edition and is ideal as an exclusive gift.
This timepiece is strapped around the user’s wrist by an ultrasoft black leather strap with white quilting seams. The body of the watch is made of brushed aluminum with a screwed on base that makes it water resistant up to 100 meters. The outer ring of the watch has a tachometer that includes four "extra instruments" for counting seconds, minutes, and hours.
The feature of the timepiece that is the most attractive is the indices made of superluminova. With this material, the watch’s appliques and roman numerals can be seen no matter what time it is.
Press release after the jump.
Whether you’re counting miles per hour, laps in minutes or acceleration from zero to 100 in seconds: the relationship between speed and time is something special, and not just as a mathematical function. Its embodiment in the form of watches and cars follows similar principles be this technical refinement or a sense of aesthetic design. Perhaps that is why many people who appreciate a high quality watch also have a love of fast cars?
It’s particularly interesting for connoisseurs and car enthusiasts when a watch is designed by a house which normally specialises in fast cars. The new Chronograph 3 by AC Schnitzer with quartz movement continues the tradition of high quality watches which have been offered for years by the sports car manufacturer from Aachen. Subtly elegant, the timepiece is the supreme accessory for every occasion. The wearer’s wrist is adorned by a strap of ultrasoft black leather with white quilting seams. The body of the watch is made of brushed stainless steel and in its finish reflects the company’s love of detail and dedication. The base is screwed, making the man’s watch water-resistant up to 10 bar pressure, as found at a depth of 100 metres. In addition, the outer ring contains a tacheometer. For all other layers of life which call for precise time measurement, there are four "extra instruments" for counting seconds, minutes and hours as well as a date display. This stopwatch function is controlled by two knobs above and below the winder.
One unique feature of the timepiece which appeals as much to the sense of aesthetics as practicality, only emerges in the dark. All indices on the face are made of superluminova - appliques and as well Arabic numerals. So the face can be read easily at any time.
Resting on a velvet cushion in a sophisticated box, the Chronograph 3 is ideal as an exclusive gift. The AC Schnitzer range also comprises a whole series of other watches with quartz movement or as exclusive automatic models in limited edition.
