Saint Honore Offers Haussman Forty 7-24 Le Mans Automatic Chronograph Watch

May 24, 2011
The French house of Saint Honore is pleased to introduce its new Haussman Forty 7-24 Le Mans automatic chronograph watch, which upholds the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship. It is issued in a limited edition of just 47 pieces.

The new Saint Honore watch is set in a 47mm cushion-shaped case. It is crafted from PVD-treated titanium. The same material is employed in the manufacturing of the round-shaped bezel. It is bolted down to the case with 6 screws. The inner ring of the bezel is equipped with a tachymeter scale.

The top of the model is shielded by a high-grade sapphire crystal. The back part is also endowed with a sapphire glass. The case handles the depth of up to 50 meters.

The new Saint Honore Haussman Forty 7-24 Le Mans automatic chronograph watch comes equipped with a silver-tinted dial. Adorned with a honeycomb-mesh motif, it offers central hours and minutes, indicated by orange, open-worked hands. The hour and minute hands as well as the rectangular hour-markers are inlaid with milky-white Superluminova, which assures a perfect night-time visibility.

The central chronograph seconds hand and the large number 15 at 3 o’clock are of the same color. According to the French company’s press release, the latter reminds of the start time for the mythical 24 hours races.

The small seconds are shown in a black counter at 9 o’clock. Set within the dial are also 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters, located at 12 and 6 o’clock. The date appears in the aperture 4 o’clock.

Giving life to all the functions is a Swiss made automatic ETA Valjoux 7750 movement, embellished with Cotes de Geneva pattern. Set with 25 jewels, the movement operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 44-hour power reserve.

Keeping the new Saint Honore watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is a black leather strap, adorned with contrast orange stitching.
