Lebois & Co has launched a new Black and Gold edition of its Heritage Chronograph. Fifth variation of the brand’s best selling chronograph series, this new model features a gilt-tone dial with Breguet-style numerals.
For their latest Heritage Chronograph interpretation, Lebois & Co again went through their own archives, which contains a whole catalogue of chronographs including gilt dials. At a 2018 auction in Monaco, they also spotted a Lebois & Co chronograph with Breguet-style numerals. The resulting Black & Gold model combines both ideas.
Dressed in a 39mm diameter stainless steel case with a bevelled bezel, the watch features a gilt-tone dial with Breguet-style numerals, hand-drawn by their designer Matthieu Allègre. Each timepiece is fitted on a cognac leather strap.
The Black & Gold Heritage Chronograph’s pre-order availability will commence on September 5th.
Although this model isn’t categorized as a limited edition, the initial production run is restricted and will form a part of the upcoming production batch for Heritage Chronograph watches. The first pieces will be ready for shipment as of early 2024, and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
