The new enchanting Saint Honore collection includes three men's watches and three women's watches, issued in a limited edition of 125 pieces.

Every new Saint Honore watch is equipped with a quartz movement. Depending on the model, the movement provides the functions of hours, minutes, seconds, date and chronograph.

The heart of each lady’s watch is placed in a case, crafted from bronze PVD-coated stainless steel. The watches, created for men, are available with a titanium-coloured PVD case.

On the front side the Saint Honore Orsay and Monceau watches are assembled with convex sapphire crystals. As for the Hausmann watch, it is armed with anti-glare sapphire crystal.

The Haussman watches for ladies are fitted with an 18K pink gold-plated bezel, illuminated by the play of six sparkling diamonds with a total weight of 0.05 carats. The Haussmann men’s watch reveals 6 screws. The back side of every case is engraved with 125th Anniversary logo. The Orsay and Monceau watches are submersible to 30 meters, whereas the Haussman watch boasts 50-meter water-resistance.

The Saint Honore women’s watches from are adorned with alluring dials, done in white mother-of-pearl. The dials of the Orsay and Monceau watches are embellished with 8 diamonds, which overall weight constitutes 0.05 carats. Every dial is completed with retrograde 60-minute and 5-minute counters, located at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock respectively. The display of the Hausmann watch reveals a date aperture at 4 o’clock. It is joined by a rotating SH monogram at 6 o'clock. Pointing to the hours and minutes are 18K pink gold-plated hands.

The Saint Honore men’s watches show off brown guilloche dials. The displays of the Orsay and Monceau watches feature a big date at 12 o’clock. Set within the dials are retrograde 60-minute, 5-minute, and 60 seconds-counters, nestled at 10, 2 and 6 o'clock correspondingly. In the Hausmann watch, the date is indicated at 4 o’clock. The 18K pink gold-plated hands mark the progression of the hours and minutes.
