2015 marks the 130th anniversary of SAINT HONORE. What could be more appropriate to commemorate this magnificent event than a limited series of watches that encapsulate the brand's history and know-how? SAINT HONORE has fulfilled this exciting brief by creating six exclusive pieces with two key visions: to revisit the brand’s classics – Opéra, Lutécia, Coloseo, Caroussel, Haussman – and to incorporate into its designs the very best of the SAINT HONORE spirit. This spirit can be summarised by the brand’s values of elegance, tradition, innovation and passion.
For women, the 130th EDITION pieces have been robed in a particularly seductive black finish. The Opéra, Lutécia and Coloseo watches offer a dazzling contrast between the black PVD case and the “Eclair Effect” applied to each bezel, in celebration of this exclusive innovation by SAINT HONORE: a unique, infinitely precious effect that evokes a pavé setting of diamonds. The dial, with its central circle in shimmering black mother-of-pearl, is also illuminated by its rose gold details: the hands, roman numerals and date aperture are certain to catch the eye.
For men, the 130th EDITION timepieces also come in a black PVD case combined with a stunning pink PVD bezel. In their intense black attire, the dials of Caroussel, Lutécia and Haussman remain perfectly readable, providing a stylish contrast with the indications: the hour-markers, hands, date aperture and even the crown are all picked out in rose gold. These unique creations feature very different movements and functions to satisfy men of all kinds: elegant gentlemen will be attracted to the more classic Caroussel, globetrotters will turn to the Lutécia GMT for its dual time-zone, while stylish sportsmen will be eager to discover the powerful Haussman chronograph.
In a finishing flourish, the case-back bears an engraved inscription of the “130th Anniversary” logo, while the black crocodile-effect leather strap is of an exceptional quality.
To extend the magic, each watch in this limited series of 130 pieces will be delivered in a special box accompanied by a wallet made from the same black crocodile-effect leather as the strap.
Since 1885, SAINT HONORE has been synonymous with the famous “Paris style” and has been manufacturing collections of unrivalled creations.
