An expert in major complications and jewel-setting, the house of Bunter never rests on its laurels. The brand has consistently expressed the signs of the time, while being deeply connected to the watchmaking traditions, it has been enhancing for 155 years.
Now Bunter is delighted to breathe a new life into a legendary Arcadia collection, originally developed in 1858. An icon of the Fleurier Watch Company, this incredible line boggled the public’s imagination with it creativity, amazing for that time.
The reinvented series includes a new Arcadia AC01 watch, which represents a celebration of modern style and time-honored values. The model demonstrates a powerful design, performed in line with up-to-date technical codes.
This horological marvel is available with a tonneau-shaped case, which features the dimensions of 42.00 mm x 40.00 mm x 14.60 mm.
It is manufactured from a clever combination of titanium and stainless steel 316L. Equipped with mobile lugs, the case also features a crown and a pusher. The crown functions in three positions: its smooth handling ensures manual winding, quick date setting as well as time setting. The pusher is intended for adjusting the GMT time-zone.
Both front and back sides of the new Bunter watch are fitted with high-grade sapphire crystals. Beneath the top glass there is a split-level dial, made from such an avant-garde material as carbon fibre. Its temporal indications include centrally displayed hours and minutes, supported by small seconds, ticking away in a counter at 3 o’clock.
The undeniable highlight of the display is a centralized chronograph seconds hand, dressed in red. The dial is also completed with a 30-minute chronograph counter at 9 o'clock and a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock. They are kept company by the date indication, arranged at 4 o’clock. The last, but not the least is a 24-hour time-zone index, presented at 12 o’clock.
Ticking inside the new Arcadia AC01 watch is an automatic movement - Dubois Depraz module, which uses ETA2892-A2 as its base. It incorporates an 18 k rose gold rotor. The mechanism runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a power reserve of 40-44 hours.
The timepiece is accompanied by an anti-allergenic technological fibre strap, closed with a folding clasp. The new Bunter watch is delivered in a traveling case, crafted from ultra-resistant neoprene, which ensures easy transportation and maximum protection.
