2012/01/12 - Hysek Elegance and character for the IO Chronograph & Dual Time

Aimed at a clientele in love with elegant timepieces with strong character, the IO collection sees the addition of a new model, the IO Chronograph & Dual Time.

This watch with innate charisma and feline curves shows a generous 47 mm diameter case, in polished and satin-finished steel. Its tech-oriented, sporty black dial ensures optimum readability. The cumulative stopwatch displays are rhodium-plated for a sophisticated contrast and aligned vertically, with the 30-minutes counter at 12 o’clock and the 12-hours counter at 6 o’clock. A touch of red has been added to the large direct-drive hand mounted in the centre and to the seconds counter, which increases the sportive look of this chronograph. By contrast, the small seconds at 9 o’clock is decidedly low key and elegantly counterbalances the date display on the opposite side of the dial.

In addition to its classic hours, minutes, seconds and date functions, the IO Chronograph & Dual Time offers the possibility to read on the internal bezel a 24-hour second time-zone, allowing the wearer to easily find his way through the maze of time zones.

Combining force and sophistication, the IO Chronograph & Dual Time will delight the most demanding sportspersons as well as frequent travellers.
