The latest variant of the successful Manero Flyback Chronograph once again brings the timeless elegance of 1960s chronographs to aficionado’s wrists. This debutante boasts a 43-mm pink gold case with gentle curves and harmonious proportions that are unmistakably inspired by the distinguished style of the Swinging Sixties.
Swiss understatement likewise graces this newcomer’s black dial: embellished with a fine sunburst pattern, the pretty face shows the continually running seconds on a subdial at the “9” and the elapsed minutes at the “3”. Both the date at “three o’clock” and the tachymeter along the dial’s flange to measure average speeds are harmoniously integrated.
The state of the horological art is embodied by chronograph calibre CFB 1970, which includes a flyback function for timing the durations of several consecutive intervals. The movement oscillates at a pace of four hertz or 28,800 vibrations per hour and amasses a 42-hour power reserve. The high-quality decorations and embellishments are handsomely visible through the sapphire crystal on the back of the case.
