Meet Heritage Watch Manufactory Magnus Contemporaine and Magnus Classic Models

Jan 27, 2011
Heritage Watch Manufactory has proudly delivered its new Magnus collection. The remarkable line includes the Magnus Contemporaine and the Magnus Classic watches.

The dial of first model represents a superb combination of space and volume. The display of the second timepiece, meanwhile, eloquently demonstrates its business character.

Born from the dexterous fingers of the designer Eric Giroud, the dial of the new Magnus Contemporaine watch is done in brass. The new Magnus Classic model comes with a choice of a brass or gold dial.

The face of each timepiece is highly resistant to external shocks and environmental disturbances. It is attainable thanks to its special positioning by means of pins, screwed directly into the movement.

The display of every Heritage Watch Manufactory watch captures the time with skeletonized central hands, crafted from hardened steel. They serve to indicate hours and minutes, turning over Arabic numerals, different in size. Taking care of small seconds is a neat hand, which makes its rounds in the counter at 6 oclock.

The functions described are driven by a Swiss-made HWM Cal. 880 movement, made of fully hardened parts. It has a diameter of 38.30 mm. The height of the caliber is equal to 6.10 mm.

Skillfully studded with 33 jewels, the mechanism incorporates diamante-bevelled plates and a Breguet over-coil hairspring with a mass-regulated Vivax balance wheel. It moves back and forth at the rate of 18,800 vibrations per hour. The movement also utilizes a Swiss-made lever escapement mechanism. With its Pariter twin mainspring barrel, the caliber provides a 50-hour power reserve.

The heart of each timepiece is protected by a noble 42.50 mm case, also created by Eric Giroud. It is sculptured in polished/sanitized steel, white or red gold. To adjust the functions the brands specialists have fitted the case with a winding crown, nestled at 3 oclock. The top of the case boasts a domed sapphire crystal. The sapphire glass, exposed on its back side, is flat. The watch is 50-meter water-resistant.

Each new Heritage Watch Manufactory watch comes fitted with an elegant dark alligator leather strap, finished with a pin buckle.

The models in question are ideal partners for individuals, who prefer a high degree of technical refinement behind the elegant exterior.
