In 2010, to celebrate its 125th anniversary SAINT HONORE launched The Line, a limited edition wristwatch designed by Charlélie Couture (Bertrand Charles Elie Couture), the French & American musician and multi-disciplinary artist.
For the 125th anniversary of Saint Honoré, CharlElie has created a watch-as-artwork inspired from the streets of New York, with its exclusive, sleek design.
This sophisticated and refined watch depicts time in two ways: linear time, with the straight white line that never ends, but also cyclical time, the eternal new beginning represented by the circle on the dial.
The SAINT HONORE Line watch houses a Swiss made ETA 2821 automatic movement. The transparent sapphire crystal case-back displays the movement, with its pearly finish and diamante snailed decoration, oscillating weight with a “Côte de Genève” finish in black gold. The watch makes beautiful use of lacquer, as the line crossing the dial is in white lacquer, contrasting with the dial itself painted in matt black.
The LINE watch is a limited edition collection of 125 pieces.
