This new Excellence Regulator completes the existing line with three models. Behind their steel 42-mm case is a self-winding mechanical movement with Dubois Dépraz complication. The dial, available in an intense black, night blue or ivory white, displays the hours on a counter at 12 o’clock, the minutes on a central hand, the seconds on a second counter at 6 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. The leather strap matches the dials (black, blue, cognac) and is fitted with a folding clasp.
Stamped Swiss Made, these three new models will be available in a limited edition of 70 each, as of April, from the brand’s approved dealers.
