OLIVIER JONQUET is a young luxury watch brand based in France. The brand has announced the launch of its debut model Elie, an elegant timekeeper which beats to the rhythm of a genuine and historical movement manufactured in France.
This limited edition timepiece is made with a Stainless steel 316L cushion-shape case featuring a sapphire crystal, an enamelled dial, blued steel « Breguet » type hands and supplied with a leather strap totally handmade in a Parisian crafts shop. The design of this watch is inspired from watches of the 1910/1920 era.
The project has been realised with the involvement of some prestigious firms, talented watchmakers and craftsmen from the France. The first model of the brand is proposed exclusively through internet and only 50 copies will be produced after receiving all subscriptions.
The cushion-shaped stainless steel case offers a contemporary and retro look. The satin case back is engraved with OJ logo, name of the model and the serial number of timepiece.
The highly legible white enamel dial, inspired from Fob watches, does not display the logo or brand name. The « Breguet » type hands in blued steel add elegance to the dial.
For this project, the brand has acquired a well preserved lot of 70 France Ébauche FE 233/69 movements. These legendary movements were made in France but assembled in Switzerland. These historic movements are then reworked and adjusted in Haut-Doubs (France), before integrating into the timepiece.
Positioned in the affordable price range, the limited edition OLIVIER JONQUET ELIE timepiece is available for 1,890 Euros (excluding delivery costs). This timepiece can be pre-ordered now by visiting the OLIVIER JONQUET website.
