The flyback function first appeared in 1936 and since then has become a favourite amongst pilots and sportsmen alike. Incredibly useful when timing short and fast races, the function allows its user to save valuable time while timing an event.
By pressing the flyback pusher once, the timing stops at the first interval and resets the hand to zero. The chronograph hand then starts again once the pusher is released.
In keeping with its aim to make complications work easier and better, Ateliers deMonaco’s patented Admiral Chronographe Flyback makes no exception and measures a succession of elapsed times while eliminating many superfluous repetitive operations.
The chronograph’s impressive mechanism is housed in an equally striking 18K rose or white gold envelope.
Aesthetically, the dial is probably the most exceptional feature of the timepiece, adding a true uniqueness from the very first glance.
Indeed, entirely made out of sapphire crystal – an iconic material for high luxury watches – Ateliers deMonaco makes a daring choice to enable people to admire the movement and details of the watch directly through the dial – a true gift for any watch aficionado.
Adorning this fine window into the chronograph’s heart, roman indexes have been skilfully applied to dress the dial as a timeless and refined touch.
Over 50 holes had to be delicately pierced into the surface in order to fix the diamond-cut and curved numerals, making the dial evermore exceptional.
Behind this precious exterior, the watch is powered by its own in-house Admiral Chronographe Flyback caliber with a direct “return to zero” mechanism, running at 28800 beats per hour and offering a 38-hour power reserve.
Embellished with 32 jewels, hand-decorated bridges and a 22K gold hand-engraved rotor, the timepiece’s core is as precious as its luxurious case.
Every element is fully polished and assembled by hand like a piece of art, hand-crafted to a standard of perfection.
The chronograph is mounted on a hand-stitched alligator leather strap with an
18K gold ardillon buckle to further enhance it classical elegance.
With its refined look, one can easily wear the Admiral Chronographe Flyback – Saphir on a daily basis, shifting swiftly from a polished business look to a stylish afterwork attire.
