The thundering hooves, the roar of the crowd, the thrill of a photo finish – horse racing, whether it’s trotters, thoroughbreds, or the steeplechase, is a game of seconds and inches. It’s where fortunes change hands in a heartbeat, and where the question on every lip is: “What was the winning time?”
In 1910, the race against time prompted an unheralded genius, Fritz Moeri, to craft a marvel – the first wristwatch that could start and stop on cue. The demand was spurred by the racing renaissance in America. When legendary horses like Man o’ War galloped into the annals of history, the stakes went beyond just winning; it was about exactitude.
Fast forward to today, and the spirit of Moeri lives on in the Steeplechase Chronograph. This wristwatch isn’t just inspired by the past; it brings it alive. Echoing the aesthetics of the Roaring Twenties, it’s a nod to the era when fedoras weren’t just hats but statements. The rose gold-finished stainless steel case hides a modern marvel – a movement that oscillates with breathtaking precision. Its dial, a symphony of subdials and a majestic date window, is framed by the sleek elegance of a black leather strap with contrasting stitches – a blend of tradition and trend.
Chronographs of yore have found homes in auction houses, fetching staggering amounts. But why settle for a relic in a showcase? With the Steeplechase, you don’t just wear a watch; you wear history, reimagined.
Dive into the golden era of racing with the Steeplechase Chronograph. A timeless classic for the modern man.
