This year, Valbray presents a Grey version of its Oculus Argentique watch. In tribute to the world of photography, from where the innovative Valbray diaphragm opening system comes, this exceptional timepiece offers finishes and colours that recall those of 35mm cameras, like mythical Leica M6 or M7 or Contax.
The ‘’Argentique’’ photography is the technique to fix pictures on paper using the light emitted by an object or a scenery. The term “Argentique” actually refers to silver emulsions used by photographic films, as an opposition to the digital photography.
The beautiful black and white contrast is the leitmotif of the watch. First, it is present between the titanium grade 5 case and the deep black of the pushers and the internal bezel. Then, it is also offered by the dial, where the fine steel honeycomb grid flies over a bright polished black base. The opposition is also expressed by finishing alternating fine brushed with polished surfaces. The bezel is decorated with white engravings that recall the ones on the lenses of cameras. Following the same spirit, the side of the bezel as well as the buttons have been done with a « clous de Paris » finishing, which intensifies the heritage of the photography universe.
Equipped with a meticulously finished Valjoux movement, visible through the back sapphire and a brown alligator strap with white stitches, the Grey Argentique is an exclusive and limited edition to 36 pieces.
