The HyperChrome Automatic Tachymeter is one of those special timepieces which are specially designed as a part of its sports collection. It has been adorned by the swagger Hrithik Roshan as a part of the brand endorsement.
To talk about the technicalities of the timepiece, the first and foremost thing that comes in one’s mind is that this watch is constructed of the high-end plasma ceramic material making this the sturdiest watch possible. It will not break or melt under the toughest conditions. Thus it comes in handy at even the most rugged conditions.
An added feature of the tachymeter scale has been presented in this strong and sturdy watch to enhance its sporty look for determining speed and distance personally.
The fully ceramic bezel of the timepiece is engraved with super-luminova markings making them highly visible even at lowest of the light available. The case which is also fully ceramic and is 45 mm in diameter is extremely light weighted and gives a totally light feel while wearing it on the wrist. This watch is also highly scratch resistant.
The dial has a beautiful dark grey display with the chronograph feature embedded to it. There are three sub dials for hour and minutes arranged in a conventional way inside a V shape. The tinge of rose-gold plated rings in the sub-dial adds to the warmth and the beautiful contrast to the display.
Like every other timepiece of the collection the date display remains to stay between the 4th & 5th numerals thus giving enough space to fit the sub-dials in place and not obstructing their mechanism and placement. Both the sides of the case are covered with rose gold plated PVD and thus have two pushers for the chronograph and also the crown. The high-end plasma ceramic is so polished to give it an amazing shine and maintain a cool and sporty look. This not only enhances the style quotient of the watch but also maintains the colors and protects them from being faded away for a long term.
Flipping the watch by the back one gets to see an exhibition case decorated with an ETA 2894-2 chronograph movement with 37 jewels along with a black oscillating weight for the movement. The timepiece has an amazing power reserve of 42 hours. The water resistance of the timepiece is 300 meters/330 feet. The maximum retail price for this awesome timepiece in India is Rs. 298,500.
