Crazy Hours was first introduced in 2003 in its famous Cintrée Curvex case, and this year sees it presented for the first time in a Vanguard™ case. The complication comprises a jumping hour module and an automatic movement. While the hour hand jumps to point the correct hour numeral, the minute hand revolves round the dial in a traditional 60-minute cycle. Although the hour numerals seem randomly placed, there is a sequence to the ‘crazy’ hours – each subsequent number is placed at an approximately 150-degree arc away from the preceding number.
The Vanguard Crazy Hours also presents a range exclusively for Asia. Available in a rose gold, steel or lightweight black carbon case, the dial is adorned with the appliqué relief numerals, complemented by a tone-to-tone winding crown. The lines and curves of the timepiece symbolize its elegant and iconic design with a touch of sporty elements.
The Vanguard Crazy Hours Asia Exclusive faithfully reflects the House's audacity, while bringing a unique aestheticism to the collection.
