Enhancing their Renaissance collection, Swiss watchmaker Aerowatch presents a new 18 carat gold mechanical chronograph watch in a limited edition of 100 pieces. Paying tributes to the bygone era of traditional watch making, this timepiece manufactured by the family owned Swiss watch brand houses a professionally restored Valjoux 72 calibre produced in 1950s.
The Valjoux movement comprises a column wheel and features the oscillating pinion system invented in 1886. Particular case was therefore taken in the finish of this component. Indeed, all steel parts were buffed, chamfered and then polished to the highest watchmaking standards. The bridges for their part were glided with rose gold and embellished by a light “Côtes de Genève “decoration.
To showcase this masterpiece, AEROWATCH chose to produce the 42mm case in 18 carat rose gold. It finds its inspiration in the elegant lines of bygone eras, having been remodeled to obtain a contemporary style. Equipped with a domed sapphire crystal on the dial side, the case also has a transparent sapphire on the movement side through which the mechanism can be admired.
The silvered dial is engine turned in the centre. Applied indexes matching the colour of the case create a harmonious overall effect. The choice of the pulsimeter scale underlines the uniqueness of this creation. The scale, calibrated on the basis of 30 beats, was used in the past by doctors to take the pulse. The hands, like the indexes, have a super-luminova finish.
The genuine alligator strap is coupled with a personalised 18 carat rose gold pin buckle.
