Chapter 3.4 Black Pepper by BA111OD

BA111OD presents Chapter 3.4 Black Pepper, which echoes the Chapter 3.3 1R1SÉ in steel, launched last September. This black PVD-coated steel version gives an assertive character to this elegant 42mm timepiece, displaying hours, minutes and seconds. The satin-finished anthracite dial with smoked gradation and faceted, polished indexes reveals the heart of the watch, with a semi- skeletonized automatic movement offering a comfortable 44-hour power reserve.


hapter 3.4 Black Pepper was born out of a passionate discussion between loyal BA111OD customers and Thomas Baillod, founder of the brand, during a pepper fondue at the Baillod family farm in the Neuchâtel mountains.

Like the Chapter 3.3 in steel, this model, covered in black pvd, offers a more racy case design, with retracting lugs and a semi-skeletonized dial. It retains its signature crown with embossed logo at 4 o’clock. The steel baton markers are beveled and highlighted with Super-LumiNova, as are the openworked steel hands.

The dial, satin-finished in anthracite sunlight with a smoky gradation, opens to reveal at 1 o’clock the balance-spring, the vital organ of the watch, which regulates the march of time through its oscillations. The opening is extended to offer a view of the gear train of this automatic, semi-skeletonized movement, equipped with 26 jewels and a black color treatment. Finally, the brand has opted for the highest level of standard finishing, grade A, to ensure perfect finishes.

The Chapter 3.4 Black Pepper makes a statement with its dark, monochrome character. This resolutely modern timepiece is an immediate eye-catcher, particularly because of its very high perceived value with its automatic Swiss made semi-skeleton movement.

The brand’s objective is to share a true passion for Swiss mechanical watches by making them accessible. Mission accomplished with this latest launch. Indeed, the Chapter 3.4 Black Pepper is available at the exceptional price of CHF 580 + VAT. This price positioning is made possible thanks to the unique economic model created by the founder of the brand: we-commerce, the community evolution of e-commerce putting the consumer at the center of the brand. Without any compromise on quality of course!
