THE NEW WYLER GENÈVE CODE-S CHRONOGRAPH
For the new Wyler Genève Code-S collection, the brand's familiar tonneau case has been reduced in size and its lines have been rounded. It uses the same sandwich construction as its bigger brother, the Code-R, with two metal plates fixed to a composite case middle by means of four polished titanium screws. All models feature Wyler Genève's patented crown protector, which must be opened on both sides (using the sliding pins) in order to manipulate the tyre-like rubber-coated crown. Distinctive concave chronograph pushers blend harmoniously into the case, with three horizontal stripes following the contours around the case middle punctuated by the “WYLER” engraving on the opposite side.
Wyler Genève chose the reliability of its existing Swiss-made automatic chronograph movement, which has a 42-hour power reserve, to power the Code-S. A drilled, blackened oscillating mass with white Wyler Genève logo captures the wearer's movements in order to power the watch and is visible through a transparent sapphire crystal aperture in the case back. The new Code-S models are fitted as standard with an elegant foldover clasp with an engraved buckle in gold for the gold models and titanium for the steel models. They are water resistant to 100 metres and come with a 2-year international warranty.
The model presented for the Gents' category of the Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie 2009 is in stainless steel with a slate-grey dial with a black applique for the counter rings, hour markers and oversized 12 and a matching black DLC bezel and black rubber strap with steel/titanium foldover clasp.
