SEVENFRIDAY M1B/02 “EL CHARRO” Limited Edition

Nicknamed “EL CHARRO”, this latest timepiece from SEVENFRIDAY takes inspiration from Mexico’s swashbuckling heroes renowned for their fighting skills, horsemanship and sheer bravery.

Part of SEVENFRIDAY’s popular “M-Series”, the new piece uses patterns and materials synonymous with the “El Charro” attire, making sure it’s packed with cool, cultural and fun design nods for those who like something a little different.

Paying homage to the traditional craftsmanship of the Mexican artisan, other features include an animation ring presented in exclusive natural horn material with decorated and engraved horse saddle inspiring the strap and buckle.

Bold design elements include the Calavera Mexican skull featured on the hour disc and the aged case mimics the metal features of an “El Charro” and his sturdy companion’s wears.

The piece also includes pops of bright green to mirror the cactus with signature “gun vs. cactus” engraved on the underside chip disc.

Limited to 450 pieces globally, this timepiece is priced at 1,550 USD/CHF and 1,372 Euro.
