Story

The Epic X is a collection defined by its unmistakable design, contemporary style and high-end watchmaking solutions. The Epic X is a bold combination of traditional and high-tech materials, exclusive and highly refined calibers, and a truly "Epic" aesthetic that is immediately recognizable and yet remarkably versatile. From sporty and rugged to precious and elegant, every Epic X is as striking as it is multifaceted.

Defined by the iconic X-shaped lugs, the Epic X Chrono features integrated design and engineering solutions for ultimate comfort, functionality, and style. Its complex case is full of exquisite details, lending it its bespoke aesthetic and inimitable feel. The smoked mineral crystal dial and caseback allow for a peek into the exclusive JCAA05 chronograph caliber and its beautifully finished details. The openworked rubber strap allows for ventilation and flow seamlessly into the lugs and case-band, creating a sublimely comfortable fit around the wrist.

THE APPEAL OF THE CHRONOGRAPH

Chronographs are the most popular complications in watchmaking for men and women. There is something about the chronograph that captures people's imagination and, as such, this complication is certainly in high demand.

Using a chronograph is easy and fun. The chronograph is something you can use to measure time, not just to read it. This allows for an interaction with the watch. Interactivity makes things completely different, since you are doing something, not just reading something.

Chronographs are popular because they offer a very accessible complication and one whose standard layout is very attractive.

The Epic X Chrono is purpose-built, so it has a technical, sporty style with the chronograph pushers on the side of the case, the balanced bi-compax dial, and the view into the movement through the mineral crystal dial.

MOVEMENT

The Swiss Made automatic column-wheel chronograph movement is considered the top of the line, as it is sophisticated and reliable. Controlled by two pushers (start/stop and reset), the seconds are counted by the central chronograph hand and the minutes are clocked by the right-hand subdial.

CASE AND CRYSTAL

The bold design of the Epic X Chrono Baguette Blue Mineral Crystal's 47mm 18K white gold case uses large lugs to create an "X" shape.
Baguette diamonds pave the case, bezel; and lugs; and surround the chronograph pushers and crown.

The JCAA05 movement with its skeletonized bi-compax design is partially revealed through a blue mineral crystal dial and caseback.

Water resistant to 200 meters, this is a true sports watch and an elegant jewel.

THE DIAL & HANDS

The Epic X Chrono Baguette Blue Mineral Crystal has a bi-compax layout, with the right subdial for the chronograph minutes and the left subdial for the running seconds. Two pairs of stripes extend from the lugs and intersect with the two subdials. Bugette diamonds run along the stripes and surround the subdial.

Skeletonized hands with Super-LumiNova luminescent tips indicate the time. They sweep over a blue mineral dial that provides a partial view of the JCAA05 automatic chronograph movement.
