Epic X Chrono Baguette Green Mineral Crystal

Story

The Epic X is a collection defined by its unmistakable design, contemporary style and high-end watchmaking solutions. Every Epic X is a statement-piece: a bold combination of traditional and high-tech materials, exclusive and highly refined calibers, and a truly Epic aesthetic that is immediately recognizable and yet remarkably versatile. From sporty and rugged to precious and elegant, every Epic X is as striking as it is multifaceted.

Defined by the iconic X-shaped lugs and dial appliqués, the Epic X Chrono features integrated design-, and engineering solutions for ultimate comfort, functionality and style. Its complex case is full of exquisite details, lending it its bespoke aesthetic and inimitable feel. The smoked mineral crystal dial and case-back allow for a peek into the Exclusive JCAA05 chronograph caliber and its beautifully finished details. The openworked rubber straps allow for ventilation and flow seamlessly into the lugs and case-band, all to create a sublimely comfortable fit around the wrist.

THE APPEAL OF THE CHRONOGRAPH

Chronographs are one of the most popular complications in watchmaking and are used in timepieces for both men and women. There is something about the chronograph that captures people's imagination and, as such, this complication is certainly in high demand.

Using a chronograph is easy and fun, and very functional. The chronograph is something you can use to measure the time, not just to read the time. Due to this, you have an interaction with the watch. Interactivity makes things completely different, since you are doing something, not just reading something. By doing this, you cannot control the time, but you are heading in that direction.

Chronographs are very popular because they offer a very accessible complication and one whose standard layout is very attractive.

The Epic X Chrono is purpose-built, so it has a technical, sporty style with the chronograph pushers on the side of the case, the balanced bi-compax dial, and the view into the movement through the mineral crystal dial.

MOVEMENT

The Swiss Made automatic column-wheel chronograph movement is considered the top of the line, as it is sophisticated and very reliable. Controlled by two pushers (start/stop and reset), the seconds are counted by the central chronograph hand and the minutes are clocked by the right-hand subdial.

CASE AND CRYSTAL

The 47mm carbon fiber case of the Epic X Chrono has a bold design, creating an "X" shape with the prominent lugs and then running through the case and the architectural structures within the movement.

The case features an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a forged carbon bezel and ceramic pushers, a screw-down crown and an inner rotating bezel, controlled by the push-down crown at 10 o'clock.

Water resistant to 200 meters, the Epic X Chrono is a true sports watch that makes a strong statement and is designed to take anything and everything you can throw at it.

THE DIAL & HANDS

The Epic X Chrono has a bi-compax layout, with the right subdial for the chronograph minutes and the left subdial for the running seconds.

Skeletonized hands with Super-LumiNova luminescent tips indicate the time in tandem with a rotating inner timing bezel on the Epic X Chrono, adjusted via the crown at the 10 o'clock position. Fascinating engineering solutions and true dedication to the highest standards of functionality and wearing comfort are reflected in these smallest of details.
