Fréret Roy 1818 “Petite Minute®” Collection

Fréret Roy 1818, the Paris based luxury watch retailer who also creates timepieces under its own brand name, presents a new watch collection named “Petite Minute®”.

Boasting a very specific and exclusive design, “Petite Minute®” is a world premier collection of mechanical watches with a longer hour hand and a smaller central minute hand. Equipped with a Swiss hand-wound movement, the “Petite Minute®” is available in both 12h and 24h dial lay-outs.

Based on the dial colour and case finishing, the collection offers a total of 8 different models. Each model is limited to 50 pieces. Given their very specific and exclusive design, these models have been registered at the INPI, along with the name “Petite Minute®”.

As their name suggests, the “Petite Minute®” models feature a central short minute and a long hour hand. On this model, a small seconds at 6 o’clock, whose hand is longer than the Petite Minute, completes the dial and reinforces the “regulator” spirit.

The 42mm cases are those of the brand’s emblematic model, the Coeur Ouvert® Nouvelle Vague V2, compatible because they use a calibre of the same size. The “Petite Minute®” watch houses a customized Swiss mechanical movement that beats at 21600 a/h, and features a small seconds at six o’clock. The beautiful top-of-the-range specific and personalised decoration of these calibres is currently being completed at La Chaux de Fonds.

The 24-hour version has a power reserve of around 43 hours, slightly less than the 12-hour version, the 24-hour wheel needing slightly more energy.

All “Petite Minute®” models are available in two case colours, steel or black HIP steel, according to the customer’s choice, making eight different models. The special feature of the 24-hour version is that it displays the “12” at the top, to symbolize the noon hour at the zenith, and the “24” midnight, at the bottom to symbolize the night.
