The Leinfelder Meridian Antigua is a special edition chronograph which was made for the Antigua Sailing Week 2010.
Professor Dr. Ulrich L. Rohde, himself a devoted fan of watches and also a keen yachtsman, inspired this watch after he won the Antigua Sailing Week 2009 with his boat Dragon Fly Plus and his crew. The chronograph with its smart-casual style also captivates with its unique design: in cross-section, the watch case evokes the capitals of ancients columns, with their fluid forms and shapely curves.
To cut a blank out of gold, the Leinfelder team developed a data set containing over one million commands to direct an ultra-modern-axis-milling module. They then finished it off with goldsmithing of the highest order.
Each Leinfelder Meridian Antigua 2010 is individually marked and numbered and the collection is limited to 63 pieces to commemorate the year of the foundation of Leinfelder , 1963.
