  • Description

    Precision, innovative design, and the finest quality materials: essential components for professional racing teams hunting the podium, but also the DNA of our motorsport watches. With a Swiss-made Valjoux 7750 at its core, the C7 Rapide Chronograph Automatic is built upon the finest possible horological foundation.

    A strong cohesion of black and steel surfaces, the Chronograph Automatic inherits our four-piece case design, inspired by the aesthetics of powerful modern sportscars. The precision of its construction is emphasised by a matte aluminium central band that accentuates the way its tactile curving lugs coalesce into the remainder of the case. Its form warrants further inspection - and admiration.

    That bold colour scheme carries over onto the dial. Its vertically positioned bi-compax dials have received a sunray finish which, when combined with the polished edges of its double size numerals and multi-faceted indexes, captures the light from all angles. Due to those subdials' locations, our award-winning twin flag logo features at 3 o'clock, directly opposite from a small second indicator. A tachymeter and date window offer further functionality, ensuring the C7 Rapide Chronograph Automatic warrants its place as the mechanical king of the Collection.
  • Movement

    Developed in 1974 by movement maker, Valjoux, the 7750 has been the most widely used mechanical chronograph movement ever since.

    One of the first movements to be designed by computer, the 7750 only winds in one direction and this, combined with the heavily weighted rotor arm, gives the movement a singular sound, producing a feeling that the watch is 'alive' on the wrist.
