The Atlantic Worldmaster Original 1888 Limited Edition defies time altogether, subtly elegant, mingling tradition with modernity.
The 316L polished stainless steel case reflects the delicately cambered profile of the watch. Sober and refined, the slim, round 42mm diameter bezel surrounds a dial with a “guilloché” (engine-turned) finish and ‘soleil’ decoration, whose three versions, cream, silver or black, complement the sophistication of the case to perfection. Two skeleton hands follow their narrow semi-indexed path, where the entirely hand-mounted appliqués contribute their nickel or pink gold enhancement.
Here, time is on display clearly and legibly. Anti-reflective sapphire crystal, date window at 3 o’clock, stylized asymmetrical seconds hand at 6 o’clock and scratch-resistant crystal case back, revealing the automatic ETA 2895-2 movement with small seconds hand, bestowing on the Worldmaster Original 1888 an identity wavering between vintage and modern, and marshalling the full impact of the Lengnau watchmaker’s innovations, over its 122-year history. The Worldmaster Original 1888 watch is also available with ETA 2824-2 movement with or without COSC chronometer certification.
The Speed-Switch enabling rapid date changing, and of course the legendary water-resistance of Atlantic models, individually tested to guarantee their adequate resistance and precision down to 5 ATM, or 50 metres in the case of this model.
The brown leather strap with steel buckle rounds off the model’s sophistication.
