Chronoswiss is launching a brand-new special edition in cooperation with Thomas D, Smudo, Michi Beck and And.Ypsilon, better known as "Die Fantastischen Vier" (The Fantastic Four).
The famous German hip-hop band is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. With over six million recordings sold, ten of which have gone gold and six platinum, the Fantastic Four are among the greatest bands in German pop history. The partnership with a high-quality, reputable yet (still) youthful watch brand like Chronoswiss is a perfect fit.
From the very beginning, the band members considered only a sporty Timemaster model for their special edition and eventually selected the Timemaster Chronograph Day Date, which offers a day-of-the week as well as a digital date display. The watch face, with Timemaster's characteristic representation of the four numbers 2, 4, 8 and 10, references the "4" from the band's live logo. The model has a more minimalist design in keeping with the Fantastic Four's new look mainly based on classic black-and-white color contrasts although the lettering of the F4 limited Edition comes in fire-engine red.
The timepiece is available in either a DLC-coated stainless steel case with rubber strap or a steel case with DLC-coated bezel and stainless steel bracelet.
It comes in an exclusive box with the four musicians' images on the inside. As a special bonus, four exclusive, previously unpublished photographs of the band, one of them with all band members' original signatures, are enclosed in a clip frame with each of the 200 sporty chronographs being made.
