Ultimate Chrono: An Unknown Brand

Recommended Posts

I had a look at a pre-owned quartz chronograph today, and it seemed to be a decent bit of kit in all stainless steel  with a bespoke steel bracelet screwed in both sides to the central watch lug. The watch has a screw-down crown and caseback, unidirectional bezel, 40mm case, mineral glass crystal, Japanese movement and a stated WR of 200 metres. The brand, "Ultimate Chrono" is one I have not come across before, and I wondered if anyone on the Forum had any knowledge of it. I have found two models from this company online, one being the watch I saw today and the other a bigger chronograph aesthetically less pleasing than the watch I had a look at.

 

This is the two-register (chrono seconds and minutes) "Ultimate Chrono" model I saw today (pics from assets.catawiki.nl):

Still in the plastic......not heard of them Honour, I find the face pattern distracting :)

I have now edited my thread-head to say that the bezel is a unidirectional rotating one, so I presume that is why the tachometer is upside down in the pics.:)

And thanks Roger for that "like" on this post. It's so annoying when one doesn't quite get something right in a thread-head or post because there is always a member out there who has an eagle-eye - note that, Davey P.:laugh:

I've never been described as "eagle eyed", so I'll take that as a compliment, cheers :thumbs_up:

A rotating tachy... why?

I would hazard a guess that it’s another generic designed by people that don’t care about watches aimed at customers that don’t care about watches.

Yup, I tend to agree with you Seikotherapy. I certainly had no intention of purchasing the watch, just wondered if the brand was a genuine brand or something more generic and humdrum.:)
