Catalogue Note

The BiChrono is the first watch to feature a double automatic chronograph in the same watch. In December 2008, during the FIFA World Player ceremony that took place in Zurich, the famous Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo wore a special edition of the present model to receive his bronze statue, earning himself a respectable third place.
