The horological company Jaermann & Stubi has built a solid reputation with its exceptional golf timepieces. The brand has recently announced its involvement with St Andrews Links, a home of golf, to provide this historic area with special clocks, which resemble wristwatches in terms of design.
Moreover, as a supplier and official timer of the tournament, Jaermann & Stubi has launched an exclusive watch in an edition strictly limited to 18 pieces. Every watch symbolizes a hole of the internationally famous Old Course. Similar to all the models from the brand, the new watch offers the G-Shock-Guard system with a flexible winding-stem, patented and developed specially for golf, and a course timer.
Ticking inside the new St Andrews Links Course Timer & GMT “The Old Course” watch is an automatic movement - A10 calibre. It operates at a frequency of 28,000 vibrations per hour and provides a 42-hour power reserve.
The movement serves to display the functions of hours, minutes, seconds and date. It also animates a second time zone and a course timer.
The heart of this impressive novelty is placed in a 44 mm platinum case, which features brushed and polished finishes. It is equipped with a rotating flange, activated by an exterior crown. The case is also fitted with a sapphire back with a cover, produced from the original iron of the hole. The statistics about each hole is engraved on the iron. The watch is 100-meter water-resistant.
The Jaermann & Stubi St Andrews Links Course Timer & GMT “The Old Course” watch shows off a charming silvered dial. Keeping the watch securely to the wearer’s wrist is a black alligator leather strap, closed with a folding clasp.
