The Elegance of Race

The designer drew inspiration from every object and component of the harness collections. He grasped their ingenuity, their technicality, their perfect balance, their avant-garde nature – and thus their beauty. A mission that lost nothing of the movement that shifts lines, or the function that embodies and gives life – with complete elegance.

The dial consist of Grained silvered, opaline centre with silver-powdered transferred Arabic numerals, dark grey contour rhodium-plated hands grained silvered. Ini Archibong has designed a progressive typeface, the size of the numerals gradually unfurling, smaller and leaner at the front so as to create a sense of perspective. Aboard, they focus on the quality of movement. In a final mischievous touch, the 6 o’clock crown creates a symmetrical effect.

The case of the timepiece is available in two design with the choice between steel and rose gold material. The chronograph’s shape is inspired by the world of equestrian tack, it features 316L steel set with 150 diamonds (≈ 0.66 ct) or non-gemset 40.8 × 26 mm, 10 mm interhorn width. Both design features an antiglare sapphire crystal and water-resistant to 3 bar, with a quarts movement in each chronometer.

The discerning individual who chooses the timepiece can also decide on the strap which are available in a variety of materials. The choice of material comes in Barénia calfskin natural or black, or polished alligator sapphire blue, ember, raspberry, elephant grey or black Matt alligator étoupe. The watch is then completed with the choice of a Pin buckle in 316L steel or in rose gold, 10 mm.
