The Polar Surveyor Chronograph has been developed by the Kobold Company to meet the utmost needs of professional explores. The initial version of the Polar Surveyor was created in collaboration with Sir Ranulph Fiennes, ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’ as stated by the Guinness Book of World Records.
The Kobold Polar Surveyor has accompanied explorers on numerous expeditions to the North and South Pole as a really functional wrist instrument. The newly designed rugged chronograph features a stainless steel case with a bi-directional 24-hour rotating bezel. The watch offers perfect readability due to matte-finish dial with luminous markers. The Polar Surveyor displays local time as well as a GMT/UTC-based second time zone. In addition, the watch provides the date and the chronograph function with the elapsed seconds, minutes and hours.
The watch is driven by the brand’s specially developed caliber K.751. To develop the mechanism Kobold has totally reworked the ETA 7750, appreciated as one of the most reliable and accurate chronographs ever created. The Polar Surveyor’s caliber is responsible for the regular timing and chronograph functions and displaying time for a second time zone, a function used by explorers for keeping in touch with the rest of the world.
Kobold Polar Surveyor Chronograph features the brand’s signature Soarway case crafted from stainless steel. The redesigned watch model sports a bi-directional rotating bezel with 24-hour graduation. The Kobold specialists based the bezel’s minute-graduated ratcheting system upon three ceramic ball bearings that is more effective than a common system applying click-springs. It makes the bezel well protected from dirt and freezing moisture that could lock it up.
The Polar Surveyor is presented on a corresponding Soarway bracelet provided with a patented screw-locked system. The timepiece comes in a wooden Kobold’s collector’s box that offers enough room for two more watches. The set also comprises a professional-grade canvas strap and two screwdrivers to change bands.
Sir Ranulth Fiennes, a 63-year old British explorer, has been Kobold’s brand-ambassador since 1999, the year of the company’s inception. The explorer has worn the Polar surveyor during every of his exploits. Most recently Sir Ranulth climbed the north face of the Eiger, the most treacherous mountain in Europe.
