In the LAC MOTORITIES collection, CLAUDE MEYLAN revisits the art of mechanical watch making by combining the world of vintage car racing.
Introduced in 2019, the LAC MOTORITIES watch comes in a 42mm diameter stainless steel case. These watches boast specially created cut-out dials offering three-dimensional views inspired from the vintage car racing.
Next to the off-centered dial that provides the view of smallest hand-wound openwork movement available to date, you can discover a superposition of cut out and colored sculptures which illustrate the particular moments of historical races.
The specific construction of these elements allows a staging on both sides of the watch. In black, grey and off-white effects, the sculptures feature several design elements imported from the Haute Joaillerie savoir-faire.
Beating inside this watch is a skeletonised, finely finished and engraved version of the ETA 2512 manual-wound movement. It provides a power reserve of 38 hours when fully wound. Bearing 17 jewels and beating at 21,600 A /h, the Caliber ETA 2512 is a small sized mechanical movement measuring 17.2mm diameter.
Topped with a sapphire crystal front glass, the timepiece has a water resistance up to 30 meters. Presently this timepiece is available in three references: 6049-M1, 6049-M2 and 6049-M3.
