PEQUIGNET Equus Collection (40th Anniversary Editions)

In 2013, French watch manufacture PEQUIGNET celebrated its 40th anniversary, and to mark this occasion the brand unveiled special editions of their Equus Collection.

Emile PEQUIGNET founded his own brand in 1973 and set himself up in Morteau, in the heart of the Jura watchmaking region. The genetic code for the Pequignet brand is therefore the characteristic design of the Moorea straps, and their polished links are Emile Pequignet’s hallmark.

Since the early 1980s, the Emile Pequignet brand has been associated with the world of horse riding. This relationship led to the Equus collection in 1987, which was aimed at those who shared a love of horses and beautiful timepieces. With its silver dial stamped like a coin, the Moorea Equus bears its motto: Hominis Nobilissima Victoria.

The Moorea collection has stood the test of time and represents Pequignet’s other cornerstone, which continues to attract the brand’s enthusiasts. In 2013, the Equus range was revisited and modernised, but with a nod to the past. The leather strap is secured by two lugs which curve in from the very flat gold or steel case.

Each model is individually numbered from 1 to 500.While still retaining the case’s original pure and classic lines, the new EQUUS timepieces perfectly unite elegance and subtlety. Inspirational details complement and match the simple design: Saddle leather and clasp buckles in the shape of stirrups.
