This watch is the successor to the Montre Type II and the inspiration for this new model was the need for balance. We previously had slim watches, so this time we wanted to make the watch more robust, more masculine, and give it a bolder feel - we increased the depth of the case by 2mm, a further gentle but important evolution we determined, through listening to our customers’ requirements and making sure our range is a complete offering for all. We did not add a date on the previous model, in order to complete a look of simplicity and clean lines, so by contrast we have now added one. And, this Swiss Ronda 714 caliber (the movement that drives the watch) provides a date that aligns perfectly at the 6-o’clock position to offer further visual balance.
Even though the addition of this feature produces a slightly higher price point, we think our audience is well worth that investment. Our new bracelet boasts a beautiful play of light, melding the contrasting polished and beveled edges with the brushed surface of the links. A dual-function single-folding with a safety clasp mechanism offers seamless ease of use - fewer working parts, one-handed operation, click-and-go for getting out and about. The polished beveled edges of our bracelet also considerably minimize discomfort from pinching. Furthermore, we have embellished the dial to provide a fascinating diamond effect ‘guilloche’ - an intricate and repeating motif inspired by seamless origami structure with a nod to the eternal symmetrical Arabic monikers depicted so beautifully worldwide in Arabic architecture. With the see-through mineral watch-back, the evolved watch features are wrapped up with an elegant sweeping motif which is revealed, symbolizing the perspective of layered flowing hills into the background of a sunset. Other functions include a quick-release bracelet and a spare ‘dirt-resist’ black Nano-tech croc-effect strap so that you have two watch options in one. This model has been personally tested and worn for months by our in-house team, to ensure we bring you the very best quality and reliability we can offer.
