Alain Silberstein Krono 2 1990's
One of the first of his iconic playful design chronographs from architect turned designer of eccentric watches, Alain Silverstein. Featuring 40 x 43 thick cylinder shaped case with sapphire crystal, matte white dial with colorful and eccentric stylized hands, smiling moonphase disk, 24 hour paddle propellor hand, serpentine chrono runner hand, enameled triangular shaped crown, and so on and so on with this novel design. With sapphire crystal front and back, displaying the customized auto rotor.
Powered by caliber 7751 self winding movement with month, day and date, phases of the moon and 24 hour indications. Offered on used original black leather strap and with original black leather architect’s drafting tube.
We were the original seller of this watch new in the early 1990’s when we were an authorized dealer for the Alain Silverstein line. They were innovative and almost comical then, and then fell by the wayside as so many rival innovative designs were introduced including turbillions, Jacob & Co, automotive inspired designs like Richard Mille, and so many more. But now, as time has passed we have a renewed appreciation for Alain Silverstein pieces as he truly broke new ground in his playful treatment of the complicated wristwatch. and we now have the pleasure of offering this piece for a second time.
A low #92 of a numbered limited edition from the 1990’s of 500 white dial examples and 500 with black, this was his 2nd version of the model, and more robust than the quieter profile of the Krono 1 model. Recently serviced and detailed and we note that the large luminous plots have patina’d a warm cream color, while the various colors of the hands all remain rich and intense, and have not faded at all. Offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. A fun addition to your watch wardrobe!
