Founded in 1975 in Paris, Yonger & Bresson is a French Watchmaking company. Presently, this brand belongs to Montres Ambre S.A., France.
Yonger & Bresson has recently launched an automatic skeleton timepiece, designed by Gabriele Guidi, the talented Swiss watch designer known for his exceptional works for luxury watch brands like Franck Muller, Longines, Tissot, Bulova and Universal Genève.
The Le SINGULIER automatic wristwatch by Yonger & Bresson combines Swiss design with French watchmaking saviour. The brand releases the new collection on Kickstarter on 15 October 2021. Refined & elegant, the Le SINGULIER watch will be available in 3 versions: Black, Gold & Silver.
The 316L steel tonneau-shaped case is mounted with a domed K1 mineral crystal glass. The contemporary styled skeleton dial reveals its automatic movement. Unconventional, massive yet highly elegant, its 50mm diameter curved case has been designed to fit any wrist.
The watch is driven by the MIYOTA 8N24 Japanese self-winding skeleton movement. This 21 jewel movement beats at 21 600 A/h and provides a 42h power reserve once fully wound. Each movement will be carefully regulated at -20/+20 sec/day at the brand’s Morteau workshops.
Le SINGULIER will come with two carefully picked straps to mix and match following the occasions: a leather retro-chic strap or a more sporty silicone design strap for perfect versatility. The strap width is 20mm and will be fitted with an elegant steel deployment clasp. Designed by Gabriele Guidi, a clever Quick Release Spring Bars patented system allows quick swapping of the straps.
In 1975, The Louzon brothers, two watch aficionados based in Paris, launched their own watchmaking brand: Yonger & Bresson. “Yonger” was meant to symbolize youth and energy while “Bresson” is the name of the famous French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson who pioneered the genre of street photography and one of the founding members of Magnum Photos in 1947.
Yonger & Bresson Le SINGULIER watches will be assembled by expert watchmakers of the Ambre Group in the small town of Morteau located in the French Jura mountains, the cradle of French watchmaking.
The Le SINGULIER Kickstarter campaign is online from 15th to 30th of October 2021. The backers will have the opportunity to get this timepiece at a 50% Discount Price of 249€ (instead of 499€).
