A design tour de force, the Bausele Terra Australis combines precision Swiss engineering, Australian inspired styling with a proprietary material innovatively designed in collaboration with Flinders University. This elegantly masculine watch is the jewel in the crown of the Bausele range. It’s the design inspiration and the standout feature which sets this timepiece apart, such as an innovative signature five-pronged diamond clasp holding the watch face securely in place.
The distinctive watch case construction features Bauselite, a material specially created and manufactured for Bausele in collaboration with engineering partners at Flinders University Centre for NanoScale Science & Technology. Using their world leading skills the manufacturing experts at Flinders University created a material that is similar to ceramic which enables accurate modelling and hence limits shrinkage compared to common ceramic material. What’s more the process of modelling is environmentally friendly thanks its innovative design which yields little wastage.
The partnership is indicative of the support and passion for Australian industry which is at the heart of the Bausele philosophy. The partnership is also supported by the South Australian government testament to the success of the collaboration and Bausele’s dedication to supporting Australian industry innovation.
Exuding strength and presence, at 46mm in diameter and with the crown in the 12 O’ Clock position, the Terra australis will certainly make a statement. Tough, steady and distinguishing the Swiss-made Soprod a10 automatic movement is complemented by the Australian-sourced and built design innovations, as well as the high-quality rubber and Kangaroo leather strap that’s built to last – and retain its good looks – in all climate conditions.
Founder and design director, Christophe Hoppe has taken inspiration from statement jewellery which is evident in the detailing like the distractive clasp evoking the styling of a diamond jewellery setting.
These design elements are matched with reliable quality thanks to an automatic movement built with Swiss made precision. There are also natural Australian elements incorporated into the crown of these beautiful designs – a feature that is unique to Bausele – so the wearer will always have a piece of Australia them, wherever they are in the world life takes you.
Currently available in a striking rose-gold and black combination as well as a monochrome palette featuring black clasp with black dial and features.
