CATOREX C’Vintage

The C’Vintage line pays tribute to the prestigious past of the of the Catorex brand by drawing inspiration from the design of a wristwatch model produced in the late 1960s early 1970s. This line has been produced in a limited series of 499 pieces.

The timepiece is fitted with a very rare Schild AS 2063 movement that has been fully reconditioned and decorated. This automatic movement stands out, notably, by its frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour which ensures its great precision. The movement is visible through a transparent case back.

The design of the steel case of C’Vintage has the same round shape as the original model from which it drew inspiration. Each of the four models in the range is noticeably different by the colour of its dial: blue, copper, anthracite or silver. Pointed hands reinforce the watch’s vintage style. Finally, C’Vintage is embellished with a sapphire glass with the CATOREX logo in the form of a “C” incorporated into the crown.

The watches of the « 1858 » range, manufactured entirely in Les Breuleux (Switzerland), are all powered by Swiss movements, have steel cases and are equipped with sapphire glasses. A crowned « C » discreetly integrated into the winder is what all the models have in common. The majority of them also have a transparent back revealing the decorated movement. The prices, according to model, range from 475 to 1950 francs.
