JORDI Swiss Icon Collection – Club 100 Chronograph & Belvedere Chronograph

This JORDI Swiss Icon collection is inspired by the pebbles from the Rhone River. The source of the Rhone lies in the St. Gotthard mountain range, known as “Europe’s water tower”. The river born from the melting of the Rhone glacier then flows through the Conche Valley before pouring into Lake Léman. On its journey through Switzerland, it is nurtured by over 200 mountain streams. The rocks and tiny stones in its bed are subjective to the abrasive force of the sand and of the rushing waters. This slow erosion means that every stone of the Rhone, from huge rocks to daily polished pebbles, bears the indelible imprint of this age-old process. It is the rounded shape of the latter and their soft, silky texture that inspired the ergonomic aesthetic of the JORDI Swiss Icon collection.

Black, white, silver-toned or anthracite: the dial of JORDI Swiss Icon watches is adorned with the traditional paper-cutting motifs that endow the brand with its powerful visual identity. The pattern is there, distinctly yet discreetly present. It evolves in step with observation, like a dream within reach. For resolutely practical purposes, the dial is enlivened by a large date display at noon ensuring optimal visibility, while the Superluminova hour dots will be appreciated by night owls. The domed sapphire crystal accentuates the ergonomic look and feel of the model. The generous hands symbolise arms linked in a gesture illustrating the strength that lies in unity. They echo the famous quote by Friedrich Schiller appearing inside the strap “Wirwollenseineineinzig Volk von Brüdern” (We wish to be a united brotherhood”). The crown is the signature of the JORDI Swiss Icon collection. The Swiss flag is deconstructed and recreated inside a red cylinder that is notched on the outside, like an abstract sculpture. It sets the finishing touch to a resolutely contemporary design combined with paper-cutting motifs to form a unique blend of modern and traditional elements.

The Club 100 chronograph
The Club 100 is the flagship JORDI Swiss Icon model. Issued in a 100-piece limited edition intended for an audience of connoisseurs and collectors, this chronograph testifies to its strength of character by an alliance of titanium and red gold clothing the case. It is equipped with a movement finely crafted in the Vallée de Joux and featuring a 360° oscillating weight. The dial is enhanced by the brand’s cherished paper-cut design, as well as by three small seconds, minutes and hour subdials.

Its “Swiss Horizon” strap is a work of art in its own right. It was designed by Ernst Oppliger, one of the contemporary paper-cut masters. It depicts a succession of Swiss landmarks. The upper (12 o’clock) section of the strap shows the Weisshorn, the Matterhorn, the Grand Combin, the Dents du Midi, the Brig Cloister, Chillon Castle, and a typical wooden hut of “mazot” from the Valas mountain region. The lower (6 o’clock) section features scenes from Churfisten, Stockalperpalast, the Chapel Bridge in Lucerne, the Pilatus, Finsteraarhorn, Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau mountains, along with a traditional Appenzell dwelling and a Bernese farmhouse. The Club 100 comes with a genuine leather strap in collector’s set gift box made from red-lacquered wood with a brushed steel paper-cut motif.
