The newly-created horological company Valbray is about to release two versions of its new V.01 watch. It will be clothed either in titanium or in 18k rose gold. The issue of this remarkable creation will be strictly limited to 500 and 250 pieces respectively.
The new Valbray watch belongs to the category of convertible models. Its dial is equipped with a camera-like shutter, which lends the timepiece a totally different look.
The complete opening of the shutter enables the user to see a lower dial, which ensures chronograph functions.
They are presented through 12-hour, 60-second and 30-minute counters, located at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock correspondingly. When the shutter is open, it is concealed under the bezel assembly.
If the owner of the new V.01 watch grabs the elegant bezel and twist it around, the shutter will be closed.
In this case, the wearer will be offered a pure dial, which moves forward with the simple presentation of just hours, minutes and seconds. Pointing to the hours and minutes are blued skeletonized hands. The progression of seconds is marked by a slim white hand.
The hands travel over blued hour-markers, presented not only on the lower dial, but also on the ring, featured around the outer dial.
The light-toned watch face is embraced by a 47 mm case. It is fitted with a charismatic time setting crown, conventionally located at 3 o’clock. The crown is supported by two chronograph pushers, nestled at 2 and 4 o’clock.
The new Valbray watch relies on a Swiss-made modified ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement. Accentuating the elegance of the model described is a dark-toned bracelet.
