A new chronograph line based on the DAMASKO chronograph calibre C51 is heralded with the DC8X series. A criterion of this development is to increase the readability of the chronograph functions significantly. Here, the historic Lemania 5100 movement acted as a role model. The main focus of the new line is on the technical realisation of a springing 60 stop-minute display from the centre. Thanks to this new, patented design, it is possible to record stop times even more easily, accurately and quickly. It offers two key advantages: 60 minutes, instead of the usual 30 minutes, are counted in a hand revolution and the allocated minute-stop scale can be seen across the full face diameter.
