Part of the brand-new Britain Icon Check collection designed by Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer and CEO Christopher Bailey, this timepiece issued in a 20-piece limited edition is a compendium of the famous British brand’s design codes.
Created in the 1920s, the ‘Check’ motif featured on the lining of its famous trench coats finds new scope for expression in the form of a grid pattern serving as a watch dial. The latter, like the watch movement, was entirely built in Switzerland, sealing the encounter between the best of British design and Swiss watchmaking expertise.
Crafted in anthracite DLC-treated titanium, the openworked dial provides glimpses of the mechanical calibre decorated with Geneva striping.
Mechanical hand-wound movement, modified version of the ETA 2824-2 base calibre. Polished and brushed anthracite DLC-treated titanium case, 45 mm.
