Today we pay tribute to one of the most iconic watches of the 1990s, the Chronoswiss Opus. This classically styled open-worked masterpiece rode the wave of the mechanical watch renaissance to the skeletonized chronograph hall of fame. We loved the form of the Opus, so we didn't change too much about it, but it's fair to say we gave it a 2023 twist. Recently Chronoswiss has been making headlines thanks to their bold use of color, in watches like the Pink Panther and the Purple Haze. Playing on this, we gave our titanium-cased take on the Opus a blue makeover.
On its own, the hue is bold, but with the contrast afforded by the gold-plated Chronoswiss Caliber, it's downright stunning. The final party trick is apparent only when the lights go down. What little remains of the traditional dial elements have been fully lumed, something that's rapidly becoming a tradition on Grail Watch limited editions.

A Case of the Blues

Make no mistake, the blues we're talking about here isn't the musical genre that originated in the American south. Instead, it's a vibrant electric blue, achieved thanks to a CVD coating on the titanium case. This type of coating is highly resistant like DLC, but has a lighter color and beautiful translucency that allows the blue to shine.

Classical Lines

Don't be blinded by the blue — underneath the dazzling color is a watch that is unmistakably Chronoswiss. With its thin, fluted bezel, elegant lugs and fluted onion crown, the Opus has an aesthetically pleasing case that has remained unchanged since its inception.

Open, Opus

Born in 1995, the Chronoswiss Opus was a defining watch of the time. It encapsulated the spirit of mechanical revival with its extravagantly open, skeletonized dial design. A design we were determined to faithfully capture, albeit in a brighter hue, the ornate open plates and bridges of the iconic Opus.

Blue Lights, All Night

While this watch is incredible in the light, thanks to the iridescent blue hue, the show doesn't stop at night, thanks to a liberal use of Super-Luminova on every single dial element. Not only does it look incredible, but in case you need to time something in the middle of the night, this watch will let you do that. And of course, the lume is blue.
