This year, avid watch enthusiasts have been offered a perfect chance to enjoy its new Worldmaster Valjoux Chronograph, created within the Atlantic manufacture.
As the name of this novelty suggests, its chief attribute is a reliable caliber - ETA Valjoux 7750. Developed in the thirties, through the involvement of Atlantic, the Valjoux movement made its mark on the era of automatic chronographs.
The aforementioned mechanism finds its natural home in a brushed 316L stainless steel case, which measures 44 mm in diameter. The intricate workings of the movement, graced with Cotes de Geneve finish, are visible through a sapphire crystal case-back.
The latter is screwed-down to ensure 100-meter water-resistance. As to the front part of the new Atlantic watch, it is fitted with a domed sapphire crystal, applied with anti-glare coating on one of its sides.
The case of the model is equipped with a massive winding crown, nestled at 3 o’clock. The crown is joined by two chronograph pushers, located at 2 and 4 o’clock.
The timepiece comes equipped with a supremely legible dial, performed in silver, white or black. It comprises hand-applied indexes and central hands, which serve to indicate hours, minutes and seconds. A special attention getter of the display is a red arrow, which sits on the end of the slender seconds hand.
The other highlights of the new Worldmaster Valjoux Chronograph watch include red tips of the hands, which make their paths around chronograph counters at 6 and 12 o’clock. The third chronograph sub-dial is featured at 9 o’clock. All the counters are silver circled.
The day and date indications appear in the exhibition windows, located at 3 o’clock. Completing the successful design of the watch face are the brand’s logo and the model’s name, revealed above and beneath the day and date apertures respectively. Framing the dial is an appealing bezel, equipped with a tachymeter scale.
The timepiece is mounted on a leather strap, which terminates in a butterfly clasp with security pushers. Alternatively, it can be accessorized with a stainless steel bracelet, which boasts polished and brushed links.
Characterized by functionality, precision and aesthetic sophistication, the new Atlantic watch is a perfect companion for the traveler of today.
