Maîtres du Temps has introduced the Chapter Two TCR (Triple Calendar Round), a highly legible triple calendar wristwatch with Maîtres du Temps’s trademark sporty, casual style. Watchmakers Daniel Roth and Peter Speake-Marin have designed the Chapter Two TCR with Maîtres du Temps’s distinctive day and month roller indications integrated into a circular case of high-tech Grade 5 titanium, available with either a high-polish finish or with sleek, black PVD.
The curved lines of the case are accentuated by eye- and light-catching 45° bevels along the case band that flow around the round, matte-black ceramic bezel to focus attention on the high-contrast, high-legibility dial.
Central hour and minute hands are complemented by bold over-sized hour indices-with Roman numerals at 12, 3, and 9 o’clock-all filled with bright white Super-LumiNova that glows a vivid green in the dark. Arabic numerals mark five-minute intervals around the chapter ring, while small seconds at 6 o’clock are indicated by a visually arresting bright red hand that complements the 15-minute markers.
To ensure visual access to the dial-side indications, three anti-reflective sapphire crystals are used – one over the main dial and two curved crystals over the rollers, which are metalized to frame the month and date.
For ease of operation, there are two ergonomic, paddle-shaped pushers, each engraved with their respective functions, and located on the caseback to adjust the month and day rollers. Similarly, the engraving on the big-date pusher in the case band at 2:00 identifies its function.
