Take off with 4 new Swiss made Edouard Koehn Tempus I Squadron, with steel case (43 mm) or black PVD coating, steel or black ceramic bezel, blue or anthracite dial, self-winding Tri-Compax chronograph movement EKCHR01 Concepto 2000 base, rubber strap.
In the wake of the Tempus I automatic chronograph and its Skeleton version, the Edouard Koehn Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds unveils a new squadron of sporty and racy chronographs powered by a mechanical self-winding Tri-Compax movement. Their steel fairing, a tribute to the legendary sports watches of the seventies, opens onto a display with large numerals reminiscent of aircraft instruments.
With its new Tempus I Squadron line, the independent Swiss watchmaking brand Edouard Koehn is taking off into ever more dynamic and trend-setting territories. Its four new steel sports Chronos, with a dial punctuated by large aeronautical-inspired Arabic numerals, denote both an ultra-modern character and traditional watchmaking roots.
The technical and artisanal spirit underlying these watches with their assertive temperament is based on genuine fine watchmaking expertise inherited from the watchmaker Edouard Koehn, founder of his own Manufacture in Geneva in 1891. Now established in the watchmaking metropolis of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the family-owned Edouard Koehn Master Watchmaker company perpetuates the expertise and demand for quality that have defined the watchmaker’s creations from the outset.
Conceived in very limited series, Edouard Koehn contemporary watches combine aesthetic refinement – with their elegant and timeless lines – and watchmaking innovation – with their latest-generation automatic chronograph movement, developed in collaboration with an independent manufacturer of top-of-the-range mechanical movements in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
Thus, after a first Tempus I chronograph in a more “classic” style, adorned with a “Clous de Paris” or openworked Skeleton dials, Edouard Koehn is embarking on new creative horizons with the new Tempus I Squadron line. The elegant and robust design of the 43 mm facetted case, water-resistant to 100 metres, pays homage to the first luxury sports watches of the 1970s, with two all-steel versions, a third surmounted by a ceramic bezel and a fourth coated with intense black PVD. A modern look, enhanced by the deep shades of the blue, anthracite or gradient silvered dial, punctuated by large Arabic numerals and luminescent pilot-type hands.
The hours, minutes, seconds, 60-second chronograph with central hand, 30-minute and 12-hour counters are controlled by a state-of-the-art self-winding mechanical movement, the Tri-Compax EKCHR01 chronograph, based on Concepto 2000, comprising 245 components and an oscillating weight mounted on ceramic ball-bearing.
The final touch is a natural rubber strap underlining the exclusive character of this top-of-the-range Swiss mechanical chronograph, entirely manufactured in La Chaux-de-Fonds and produced in limited quantities.
