In commemoration of its 125th anniversary, the illustrious watch company Saint Honore has released its Coloseo Valjoux limited edition chronograph watch. The brand’s novelty represents a magnificent fusion of technical prowess and charismatic design.
The new Saint Honore watch catches and holds the gaze due to its impressive size and shape. Carefully thought out down to the latest detail, the watch also boggles the public’s imagination with an array of useful features, incorporated into its 44 mm case.
The generously proportioned case of the timepiece is rendered in stainless steel, featuring titanium PVD finishing. On the dial side it proudly exposes a sapphire crystal, engraved with three large Arabic numerals. The same glass is used for the back side of the model. The case also reveals a crown engraved with the Saint Honore logo. Its water-resistance is ensured down to 50 meters.
The captivating watch is animated by the legendary ETA 7750 Valjoux chronograph movement with automatic winding. Set with 25 jewels, this mechanism beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Decorated with Cotes de Geneve pattern, the caliber incorporates an engraved oscillating weight. The power reserve, provided by this movement, constitutes 44 hours.
The mechanism serves to animate the essential functions of indicating hours, minutes and seconds, complimented by those of date and chronograph.
The watch functions are immediate and clear on the attractive black dial. Sculptured in steel, it is graced with circular-grained finish.
The dial is completed with stainless steel hour-markers and hands, highlighted by Superluminova compound for maximum night-time readability. The display also comprises partially open 12-hour, 30-minute and small seconds sub-dials, positioned at 6, 12, and 9 o’clock correspondingly. They are kept company by the date exhibition window, nestled at 3 o’clock.
The remarkable Saint Honore Coloseo watch is mounted on a black leather strap, adorned with red overstitching. The strap is closed with a folding clasp.
The Saint Honore Coloseo Valjoux watch can be also proposed with an 18K pink gold-plated case. The hour-markers, hands, and chronograph hour counter, presented on the dial of this version, are also finished in pink gold. The interpretation is accompanied by a black leather strap with black stitching.
