Alain Silberstein I-krono

Alain Silberstein - architect, watch brand. Curious mix...and having met Alain himself, is an intriguing character. Recently, he decided to stop making the colourful, whimsical watches so characteristic of his name.

I always found his watches a bit whimsical, with strong character. Thick, colourful, and often with a sense of humour. A good fried recently bought this I-krono, and I found the watch somewhat a fun sort of way.

Running on a standard Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement, the watch still manages to be full of character. The dial design, the choice of colour, the case design, the hands all fully characteristic of Silberstein.

The watch is rather large, but sits well on the the photograph below, on the new owner's wrist...quite nice.

Interesting piece especially when it is a lefty.
