The Chronomètre FB 1R is a wristwatch by Ferdinand Berthoud.

Presented in 2018 at the SIHH, the Chronomètre FB 1R pays tribute to the genius of watchmaker Ferdinand Berthoud. Like the previous editions of the Chronomètre FB 1, its movement is equipped with horological complications inspired by the scientific instruments represented by Ferdinand Berthoud’s marine chronometers. The appearance of the Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1 takes its cues from the Marine Chronometer No. 7, produced in 1767.

The amazingly unusual dial design shows a regulator-type display.
