The Abyss has turned ten! With its imposing design featuring complications that are useful in everyday life, its edgy line and sturdy case, the Abyss is a watch for the twenty-first century.

To celebrate this anniversary, Hysek has added three new versions of the emblematic tri-compax chronograph to the Abyss collection, and a numbered-edition model. They all use rose gold and titanium, two materials symbolizing the twofold vocation of the Abyss as both a sports and a luxury watch.

To ensure the coherence and continuity of its collections, Hysek has based the new models Abyss 44 mm Chronographon presented in 2014. They feature the same swivelling horns system developed by the manufacture, allowing the watch to fit naturally on the wrist and the same rose gold for the horns and the side protections.

Conversely, the variations in the finish focus on the sapphire bezel, available in anthracite, black or gold. The gold finish will have a specially designed anniversary plate engraved beneath the protection at 9 o’clock.

All the models feature a Swiss Made automatic calibre offering a 42-hour power reserve. The expansive 44mm dial alternates polished and brushed areas and welcomes two broad hour/minute hands coated in Super-LumiNova. Each hand on the chronograph’s seconds, 30-minute and hour counters benefits from the same luminous treatment, as well as the five-minute markers.
A single, secured crown is used for all timekeeping adjustments.

Three types of strap are available: leather; rubber with an additional H-shaped steel insert, emblazoned with the Hysek logo; or a combination of titanium and steel.
