Yonger and Bresson Present Victor Huga Watch

Jun 04, 2010
At Baselworld 2010, the French watch company Yonger & Bresson proudly introduced its enchanting horological novelty dubbed Victor Hugo. This appealing Master of Time watch is powered by a self-winding movement equipped with two horological complications, which truly individualize the model, bringing together poetry and impeccable functionality.

Operating at a frequency of 21, 600 vibrations per hour, the watchs movement is outfitted with a bidirectional rewind that ensures recharging twice rapidly. Besides, the mechanism is adorned with 21 jewels set in the places more exposed to rubbing. Such mounting of the precious stones makes the watch workings highly-resistant to wear. The movement, ticking inside the new Victor Huga watch, has been designed, developed and manufactured in full accordance with French watchmaking traditions.

Featured at 9 oclock, the night/day indicator has infused the timepiece with an intangible aura of mystery. The exquisitely embellished disc, rotating through the rhythm of hours, displays a sun or a full moon. Both a technical surprise and a visual excitement, this complication may be of great advantage in polar nights in the northern country.

The power reserve indicator, arranged at 4 oclock, is a complication extremely useful in daily life. It represents a graduated circle arc fitted with a hand, which indicates how much charge is left in the movement's mainspring. It is critical for a watch to have at least 30% of its mainspring wound in order to run at a regular rate. Therefore, the hands location in the superior part of the indicator ensures more accurate timekeeping.

Carefully thought out down to the last detail, the Yonger & Bresson Victor Hugo watch offers a clever blend of elegance and a highly accomplished aesthetic design. This extraordinary watch is available with a 46 mm modern case sculptured in polished steel. It is endowed with a crimping crown, marked with the brand logo.

The watch case frames an alluring dial distinguished by a highly delicate finish. Pointing to the hours, minutes and seconds are luminous hands, which assure a good level of darkness visibility. Protecting the dial is a curved sapphire crystal. The new creation from Yonger & Bresson is presented on a croco style leather strap.
