By merging the ultimate in refined design with the grand tradition of watchmaking complications, the Class collection has given itself a signature look unlike any other. Its distinguished yet modern aesthetic style is rooted in classicism and discreet luxury. It is a celebration of the Manufacture’s know-how with multiple variations of the mechanism based either on the El Primero chronograph or the Elite movement.
A savvy mix that gives a soul and an incomparability to these objets d’art shot through and through with refinement and a timeless elegance. This collection is the embodiment of the alchemy between classicism and modernity with a touch of pure distinction inspired by the 1950s. New to the Multicity range this year is a unique complication: the Class Traveller Open Multicity Alarm.
Multicity 2009 is distinguished by a unique complication. In addition to the ability to display the time whatever the time zone, this exceptional timepiece also includes an alarm that is adjustable over a 12 hour-period.
With 439 components and 41 rubies, El Primero 4046 is the first automatic movement to incorporate a column wheel chronograph, a Grande Date, a world timer, a double barrel and an alarm. The two barrels have separate functions, one dedicated to the alarm and the other focusing all its energy on the watch. The crown at 8 o’clock allows the alarm to be set and the watch to be rewound manually. The crown also has a push-button to switch the alarm mechanism on and off.
