The Space Timer Jupiter displays the hours at 12 o’clock, the minutes and seconds in the center, a moon phase and the date at 6 o’clock. 

But this date is not like the others: it floats on a disc of ITR2, a creation of carbon nanotubes that allows for all possible finishes and colors. For the Space Timer Jupiter, Chronoswiss has designed a translucent date disc that reads odd Arabic numerals in Super-LumiNova, while the even dates are made up of micro-planets just 0.6mm in diameter, crowned by a sand-colored titanium sphere that illuminates the moon
phase shows. 

At 12 o’clock we find the iconic architecture of the Open Gear collection: a highly polished and skeleton suspension bridge, beneath which the train of hour trains unfolds in a space-like black finish. Only the brilliance of the Super-LumiNova indexes is reflected there, applied to the skeleton hour disc, or in the form of the massive cylinders spaced along the flange every five minutes.

The canvas on which this cosmic composition is stretched gives the piece its name: it is the atmosphere of Jupiter,  a laser-sculpted dial with a nano-print finish.  On this nanometer scale, the eye cannot perceive volumes, reliefs and bumps. On the Space Timer Jupiter there is only a diffuse impression of gases, colors and currents. And this process makes each piece unique, due to tiny imperceptible variations.

Powered by the C.308 automatic caliber with a 42-hour power reserve in a 44mm case with double sapphire crystal.
