All Stefan Johansson Växjö Mark IX and Mark X timepieces share a number of distinguishing characteristics of form and function: A 60-minute chronograph register is uniquely set at the center of each dial; The E and G models feature a telemeter register, which measures the speed of sound – keeping focus on the fact that a fraction of a second makes all the difference in the world of racing; The 3D three-piece hour and minute hands, unique numerals, integrated crown protector and pusher mechanisms represent four of eight unique design features that have patents pending; The glass back is engraved with the piece’s individual ‘chassis’ number and if desired, the owner’s name. “I have created three families of dials, each one with a specific theme or concept. The three are embodied as the Signature Flag dial, the 24-hour countdown and our latest Retro themed dial,” said Johansson.
The all black strap is made from silicone and heat-resistant rubber. A tread pattern on the interior reduces perspiration. Also inspired from racing are ‘NACA ducts,’ which regulate air intake. These are found on current and vintage racing cars. The strap is finished with an oversized buckle emblazoned with the Stefan Johansson Växjö logo. Each watch is presented with a custom-made winder box.
Mark “C”—“If there’s such a thing as romance in a race car, the Le Mans 24 Hours captures that feeling perfectly. Every lap you are trying to beat your own best, your body and brain are in tune with the car and the track.”- Stefan Johansson. As a man who has clenched victory at the storied 24 Hours of Le Mans, Johansson knows that elegant synchronicity, and captures its spirit in the handsome Mark IX and Mark X “C” series. One of this automatic chronograph’s most distinctive features is an oversized hour sub-dial located at six o’clock, which is cleverly engineered to count down 24 hours in a nod to the duration of the legendary competition. This function anchors a colorful dial that blends conventional time and date measurement with stopwatch precision. Applied hour indexes, markers and 3D three-piece hands are coated with Superluminova to ensure maximum visibility. A horizontal tachymeter scale and a beveled chronograph scale encircle a black “Cotes de Genève” dial, which features a date register, a sweep seconds at 3 o’clock, a 24-hour countdown at 6 o’clock and a 24-hour AM/PM register at 9 o’clock. A 60-minute chronograph and telemeter scale is set at the center of the dial.
Mark “E” – Speed, Color, and Concentration…These are the hallmarks of Formula 1 racing. As a seasoned F1 driver, Johansson captures the essence of the 103 Grand Prix in which he competed. The Mark IX and Mark X “E” chronograph feature the ten official flags of motor racing which ring the bezel of this winning design. They serve as hour index markers and channel the clarity and alertness required of a driver whose eyes are truly on the prize. Applied hour indexes, markers and 3D three-piece hands are coated with Superluminova to ensure maximum visibility. A horizontal tachymeter scale and a beveled chronograph scale ring the dial. A 60-minute chronograph and telemeter scale is set at the center of the dial. An intricately crafted dial features registers set at varying heights, which overlap while hands pass beneath. Though highly complex in design, the dial and registers are surprisingly simple to read. A sweep-seconds sub-dial appears at 3 o’clock, a date register and 12-hour countdown register appear at 6 o’clock and a 24-hour AM/PM register is at 9 o’clock.
Mark “G” – The newest dial in the series, Mark “G” is a marriage of retro and modern design aesthetics. An intricately crafted “step-down” dial features registers set at five varying depths. To ensure maximum visibility applied hour indexes, markers and 3D three-piece hands are coated with Superluminova. A beveled telemeter scale and a chronograph scale encircle a silver dial, which features a centrally located 60-minute chronograph in addition to hours and minutes. The sweep seconds hand is located at 3 o’clock. The date and hour register is at 6 o’clock. The 24-hour AM/PM register is at 9 o’clock. Applied numerals are coated in black Superluminova. A Tachymeter register appears on both the IX and X models.
