LE FORBAN SECURITE MER Brestoise

After the successful re-launch in 2019 with the Malouine watch, Paris based watch brand LE FORBAN SECURITE MER presents a new model: the Brestoise.

Paying tribute to the first Le Forban Sécurité Mer model released in 1969, this new diving watch is water resistant up to 150 meters. Named after the famous French port of Brest, the Brestoise represents a perfect fusion of special characteristics of a tool watch and urban styling.

It has a 38.4mm diameter case made of 316L grade stainless steel. It is topped with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass and a unidirectional rotating bezel featuring with aluminium insert and Super Luminova luminous markers.

It features a black dial inspired by the historic Le Forban Sécurité Mer watch. Its large hour markers are embedded with SuperLuminova C3. The even numbered markers (2, 4, 6,8,10 and 12) are Arabic numerals and the remaining are rectangular indices. It features a date display at 3 o’ clock.

Just below the 12 hour-marker, the dial displays the brand name and the anchor logo. The trapeze shaped date window and the lollipop seconds hand are inspired by the historic model of 1969. All the three hands are embedded with Super Luminova C3 luminous material for ensuring dial visibility around the clock.

Just like the Le Forban Sécurité Mer ‘Malouine’  model, this new stainless steel diving watch is driven by the Miyota 8215 self-winding calibre. This highly reliable movement has a power reserve of 40 hours.
