Contemporary and sophisticated, the West End Watch Queen Anne Chronograph is an updated version of a Military Watch from WWI. Practical and water resistant to 50 meters, the Queen Anne Chrono is geared towards daily wear.
A sleek, polished bracelet fashioned of five rows of slender links keeps this timepiece on the wrist, and is fitted with a deployant safety clasp. Alternatively, this piece is fitted with a genuine black leather strap highlighted by white contrast stitching, and is equipped with a double ardillon clasp. The case measures 42mm in diameter and is set with a polished, fixed bezel. Two understated, polished function pushers flank a knurled, domed crown engraved with the West End logo.
The dial of the Queen Anne Chronograph also comes in two colors; the first is a brilliant shade of white with a matte finish; the second option is a jet black dial, also matte. The white dial features black print, while the black dial has white print. Roman numerals denote the hours, and a black minute track is printed next to the flange. An eye-catching detail, the hands on the white-dialed version are all made from blued steel. On the black dialed Queen Anne, the hands are brilliant white. All of the hands are coated with Super-LumiNova for superior legibility, in low light conditions. A scratch resistant, double curved sapphire crystal protects the dial.
Typical of chronograph timepieces, this Queen Anne piece has three subdials. Two are dedicated to the chronograph, while the third measures continuous seconds. This particular chronograph is capable of measurements of up to 12 hours. This is displayed on the 6 o’clock subdial. This position is also shared by a date aperture. The chrono-minutes subdial is displayed on the counter at 3 o’clock.
A Swiss made WE-800 rhodium coated, automatic movement powers this piece. This movement is modified from the ETA Valjoux 7793.
