Announced last year, Frederic Jouvenot’s innovation, the Automatic Chronograph Evolution, is now presented in its final version, in a case of rose or white gold.
The particularity of the Automatic Chronograph Evolution is clear from the very first glance. Its oscillating weight is on the watch face. From a design point of view, this added feature provides the dial with additional animation. The oscillating weight has been cut out in such a way that there is a clear view of the minute counter at 3 o’clock and the small seconds at 9 o’clock regardless of the viewing angle of the watch.
Even more interesting is that this particular disposition offers a spectacular view of the back of the watch, letting us admire the classic column wheel movement that drives the Evolution. The finishing is perfect (steel and brass with black gold, chamfered and hand polished, engraved bridge, Cotes de Geneve decoration), and the very elegant case in a vintage style with its openwork horns wonderfully matches the movement. The Automatic Chronograph Evolution is available in a limited series of 88 pieces.
