Gc B1-Class Telemeter

This new execution of the iconic B1 series intrigues through its modern elegant look with vintage style elements and refined functions.  The main characteristics of the Swiss Made chronograph are the exceptional telemeter scale on the bezel and the remarkably detailed dial design inspired by navigational instruments. It is a masculine timepiece with a distinct technical look appealing to the man’s instinct of adventure.

The reduced size of the 40.5 mm polished stainless steel or rose gold (PVD) case underlines the vintage inspiration of this timepiece as do the mushroom pushers, the Breguet style hands and a magnifying lens for the date window positioned at 4 hours. The design of the Gc B1-Class Telemeter emphasizes a variety of technical features. The unusual engraved telemeter scale on the bezel allows the calculation of the distance from the observer of an event that is both audible and visible.

The dial offers a tachymeter scale and three sub-dials providing a 12 hour and 30 minute indicator at 6 and 9 o’clock as well as a small second at 3 hours. The timepieces are equipped with a screw-down crown, screwed-in case back, and are water resistant up to 100 meters (10 ATM).

The modern classical and at the same time technical appeal of the Gc B1-Class Telemeter is  stressed by the distinctly elaborated dial design with interconnecting circles of its chronograph subdials, framed by hand-applied indices and two Roman numerals. The style is rounded off by a fine croco-embossed leather strap or sturdy link bracelet, both with deployment clasps.

The B1-Class Telemeter is available in five executions, four on croco-embossed leather and one on a steel link bracelet. Dials are in silver, chocolate or off-white with a sunray decoration. The star of the line is the all rose gold (PVD) execution with its rose gold (PVD) case and corresponding indices and hands.
