SAINT HONORE Chronograph Coloseo Valjoux Limited Edition

Celebrating its 125th anniversary, SAINT HONORE presents the chronograph Coloseo Valjoux Limited Edition, an exceptional timepiece that combines the best in horological expertise together with a strong design.

The ETA 7750 Valjoux chronograph movement is the stuff of legends in watchmaking. It now finds a natural home in the new Coloseo, a watch with clean lines and design that have garnered universal acclaim.

Imposing both in shape and size (44mm), the new Coloseo Valjoux stands out by virtue of its fine features and the care lavished on details: luminescent hour-markers, open-worked hands, and the crown engraved with the SAINT HONORE logo characterise the titanium PVD version. As for the pink gold version, it couples coherence with refinement, thanks to its pink gold-plated hour-markers, small seconds and chronograph hour-counter.

The three oversized Arabic numerals add a touch of originality, as they have been engraved directly under the sapphire glass at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. The titanium PVD version is also marked by the circular-grained finish of the steel dial, which has been pierced at 12 and 6 o’clock to show the two original chronograph discs.

From the mechanical angle, the self-winding movement boasts a 44-hour power-reserve. It indicates the hours, minutes, and seconds (small seconds at 9 o’clock), and comes with a chronograph function that measures seconds with a direct-drive centre hand as well as minutes and hours on two counters at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively. The date has been positioned at 3 o’clock, so as not to break the effect of harmony.

The sapphire glass on the case back, provides another means of admiring this high end mechanical self-winding movement. This opening lets true connoisseurs get a full sense of how carefully each detail and technical marvel was achieved, such as the engraved oscillating weight and the Côte de Genève decoration.

The strap is made with the same meticulous attention. The red overstitching, standing out against the black leather, echoes the red chronograph counter and gives the watch a resolutely sporty character.

The Coloseo Valjoux is offered in three versions (PVD titanium case, pink gold-plated case, or steel case) and is available in a limited edition of 300 (100 for each version).
