The Swiss house of Jaermann & Stubi has teamed up with the legendary golfer Seve Ballesteros to create a second chapter of the extraordinary golf timepiece.
A true feast for the eyes, the new Seve Ballesteros II watch boasts a dial, performed in dark blue, the Spaniard’s favorite color. Bathed in the same overtone, the presentation box cohabits harmoniously with the overall spirit of the model.
The new Jaermann & Stubi watch is available with a 44 mm case, crafted from high-grade steel. It is forged from the golf clubs with which Seve Ballesteros won the Spanish Open, the golf tournament, held in 1995.
In the course of the Spanish Open, a part of the PGA European Tour, Seve Ballesteros gained a sweeping victory over outstanding players such as Bernhard Langer, Howard Clark, Collin Montgomery and his compatriot Jose Maria Olazabal.
The best metallurgic specialists have applied a sophisticated multi-phase process to transform the irons 2 to 9, Seve played with, as well as the Pitching Wedge and Sand Wedge into the case of the new Seve Ballesteros II watch, strictly limited to 50 pieces. The case is endowed with a pusher, located at 2 o’clock and a crown, featured at 4 o’clock. The water-resistance of every unit is assured down to 100 meters.
The appealing dial of the new model is completed with Arabic numerals and hour-markers, clothed in white. Pointing to the hours and minutes are centralized, partially transparent hands. They are supported by a slender seconds hand. Additionally, the dial presents a course timer, a GMT feature and a date indication, arranged in the aperture at 6 o’clock.
The aforementioned variety of useful functions operates smoothly due to a self-winding modified Soprod Calibre A10 movement. It runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 42-hour power reserve. The mechanism also incorporates a shock-absorber device. Equipped with flexible adjustment shaft cushions, it ensures a reliable protection from any impacts possible during a golf game.
Every timekeeper from the limited series in question is individually numbered. The back side of each piece is engraved with the image of iron, employed in the manufacturing of the watch case.
A high-quality rubber strap, finalized by a folding buckle, completes the features of the new Jaermann & Stubi watch.
