Hysek - Abyss Chronograph 44mm

Hysek Abyss Chronograph 44mm

Hysek is unveiling at Baselworld a brand new version of the manufacture’s iconic chronograph, the Abyss.

A final Jubilee model marks the close of Hysek’s tenth anniversary celebrations for its landmark chronograph, the Abyss. The sportier, more contemporary timepiece also heralds the start of the iconic model’s second decade.

Since it first came out in 2005, the Abyss has become a benchmark for new-generation luxury sports watches. With its imposing design, handy complications, high-octane styling and sturdy case, the Abyss soon established itself as one of the fully-independent manufacture’s core timepieces.

The Abyss features all the Hysek hallmarks, including the brand’s distinctive 1, 5, 7 and 11 hour markers. The new Abyss is also a testimony to the exclusive care lavished on each and every detail: applique hour markers, two shades of both blue and orange to ensure optimum readability, and a total of three dial finishes (brushed, sandblasted or snailed) to make the chronograph information easier to read. And to make sure they stand out from the dial, the counters are discretely enhanced with a diamond-cut bevelled edge.
The bezel is made from dark blue sapphire crystal, securely fixed to the case with six tri-point screws – one of Hysek’s style signatures. A thin blue line runs round the outer edge of the minute track, discreetly echoing the dark blue finish.


The new Abyss is made wholly from titanium. To highlight its smart-casual spirit, the timepiece features a brand new strap, available only on this model, in orange Barenia calf leather with two printed blue bands.

True to its technical origins, the new Abyss chronograph is powered by a Swiss Made automatic movement, beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and boasting a 42-hour power reserve. It is housed in a 44 mm case with articulated lugs – a Hysek development that allows the Abyss to sit comfortably on the wrist.
