German actor Michael Fleddermann is well-booked in his country with regular appearances in several popular television shows. He is also the main brand-ambassador for Swiss watchmaker Chrono Diamond. So today we’re taking a closer look at his favorite watch from the current collection: The Chrono Diamond Furia.
The Furia is a stylish but hefty watch. The steel case is 45mm in diameter (without the crown and the pushers) and is 11mm in height. This piece will be seen and due to its remarkable design it’s a real eye-catcher. But when it comes to men’s watches big is beautiful at the moment – a watch is an accessory that’s allowed to be bulky. Not every model has to disappear under the sleeve.
The dial shows no numerals or indices, but calls definitely attention due to its exceptional design and high contrast. For the chronograph functions the Chrono Diamond Furia features several subsidiary dials. The chronograph seconds are provided by the central seconds hand, therefore the seconds are shown on the subsidiary dial on 6 o’clock. The dial on 9 o’clock shows the minutes, the one on 12 o’clock shows the deciseconds. After 30 minutes the latter becomes the chronograph hours.
The characteristic two diamonds in every Chrono Diamond watch are placed on 11 and 1 o’clock on the dial.
The Chrono Diamond Furia is powered by a swiss made quartz movement. It powers the normal seconds, minutes and hours as well as the chronograph functions and a date. The date window is placed on 5 o’clock. Because it has the same color as the dial it adapts quite nicely.
This chronograph from Chrono Diamond comes in four different models: in steel like shown above, in black, gold and pink gold. Every watch features a black leather bracelet – except for the version in pink gold, which features a brown one to complement the color of the case. Every Chrono Diamond Furia is water resistant up to 5 atm.
