Created for performance, it is first and foremost an exceptional measuring instrument. The chronograph times become clear and admired through skilfully architected reading.

The silver-tinted dial, in a honeycomb caseback, appears in a clear and racey composition, just like the dashboard in a racing car - round, graduated counters, brightly-coloured hands - or tachymetric scale graduated up to 407 km/h, symbolic figure of the maximum speed record never achieved during a 24 Hours race. The outsized orange figure 15 recalls the start time for the mythical 24 Hours races: 15 hours (3 p.m.).

Efficient. Powerful. Technique. The Haussman Forty 7-24 hides its finest asset inside its titanium finish case - the automatic Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement, visible through a transparent crystal. This self-winding mechanical movement has a 44-hour power reserve and offers the hour, minute and small second functions combined with a 3-counter chronograph system (seconds at 9 o’clock, hours at 6 o’clock and 30 minutes at 12 o’clock). Supplied with two exclusive straps - black, honeycomb rubber and special leather with holes and orange overstitching -, Haussman Forty 7-24 is ready to face any challenge.

A third consecutive podium for Saint Honoré in the Spa 1,000 (Intercontinental Le Mans Cup). The brand’s two racing-driver ambassadors, Stéphane Sarrazin, for Peugeot, and Christophe Tinseau, for Pescarolo, were wearing SAINT HONORE’s new “machine” , the Haussman Forty7-24, when it made its debut at the Spa 1,000 in advance of one of the year’s major events, the Le Mans 24 Hours.
