The Kitzbühel Alpine Rally has been quickening the heartbeats of classic car enthusiasts for 30 years. With its unique combination of adventure, mechanics and motorsports, along with a splash of style and savoir vivre, this top-class automotive event also inspired this year's watch edition. Main sponsor and watch partner Chronoswiss has developed something quite special for this anniversary year: the exclusive Regulator Rallye Limited Edition 30, of which there will only be 30 specimens worldwide.

The sporty design in the characteristic style of Chronoswiss, the high quality of the finishing and the hand-painted limited edition number on the dial make this timepiece a sought-after collector's item. This exclusive special edition really hits the mark with its dynamic color combination. Signal red highlights on the dial and strap give off a rally vibe on the wrist. At night, the watch, which is water-resistant down to 100 m, reflects accents off the hands and dial thanks to Super-LumiNova.

Like all watches from the Swiss manufacturer, this special edition is also made according to the highest quality standards and crafted by hand in Lucerne by highly experienced watchmakers. As a pioneer of the mechanical Renaissance, Chronoswiss is one of the few brands that always only uses mechanical movements for its exquisite timepieces. Each Chronoswiss embodies a special exclusivity due to the clear number of pieces available.

This independent watch brand has been active in motorsports many times before: as the title sponsor of the Chronoswiss Classics or in the development of such spectacular watch models as the Wristmaster, a dashboard clock set for Spyker, or the Tachoscope for Audi's 100th anniversary.
