Swiss luxury watch brand Pierre DeRoche unveils limited edition Bonnie & Clyde versions of its TNT Royal Retro 43 timepiece. Produced in limited editions of 101 pieces per version, these new additions – Bonnie & Clyde – boasts the spectacular features of the TNT Royal model.
With its perfectly choreographed dance of six retrograde hands, the TNT Royal is an endless source of fascination. Not content with staging a complication that is unique in the world, it now explores the field of futuristic materials by introducing a bezel in itr²®. This totally hypoallergenic composite material is six times lighter than steel and four times lighter than titanium. Created from carbon nanotubes, itr²® is transparent. Once charged with ceramic or carbon particles, it turns white or black as desired. Over and above its excellent technical performances, itr²® provides a unique visual effect, echoed by the six seconds bridges and the central bridge alternately draped in sparkling white by means of a stabilised silver coating, or in black.
The TNT Royal Retro 43 Bonnie model features a bezel in itr²® white ceramic with black engraved numerals where as the TNT Royal Retro 43 Clyde model has itr²® black carbon bezel with white engraved numerals.
