The story of the 'Kirov' wristwatch.
Made by Mark, our designer who currently lives in Russia, Kirov symbolizes the harsh and cold nature of Eastern Europe with it's stark silver coated casing, maroon brown cuff, and special dial. Kirov is therefore a symbol of mental and physical toughness.
The details of the watch.
The watch has a casing of 40 mm with a 36 mm facing and 5 mm bezel width. The casing was covered in a silver IPG coating giving the watch it's cold and strong appearance. The glass is made from scratch proof crystal mineral. The mechanism is manual, and accounts for roughly 20 spinning hours with every time you set the piece.
The details of the leather cuff.
The genuine leather cuff of this watch was made from two shades of natural Italian leathers and is 44 mm in width. The wristwatch has a double push button deployment clasp and 4 silver coated nails.
Aesthetics of the watch.
Kirov has a somehwat industrial look and feel because of the ribbed stainless steel casing, silver coating, and thicker brown leather cuff. It serves as a symbol of mental and physical toughness, similar to those of soldiers in cold lands many years ago.
Within the ribbed casing you will find a dial that includes a subdial serving an added aesthetic function. The combination of classic elements like the skeleton design and numerals with the red hand of the sub-dial and more minimalist bezelf decoration makes this watch quite special.
The leather cuff has both chocolate and maroon colorings and make it stand out from the casing. As with all watches, even the stitchings were set by one of our designers.
Shipped in a special wooden box.
As a token of appreciation, everyone ordering this watch will receive it in one of our custom Chronodos boxes made from plywood, branded with the Chronodos marking.

The watch is for men who can appreciate the symbolic nature of mental and physical toughness but also want an accessory that gives a more industrial touch to their overal image.
