The French watchmaker Michel HERBELIN presents a new interpretation of its automatic chronograph from the Newport Yacht Club collection. Sporting hours and moments, elegant in all circumstances, this timepiece sets the tone of urban sophistication.
With a generous diameter of 43.5 mm, the case in steel coated with grey anthracite PVD reveals a black dial, vertically hand-brushed. Protected by an anti-reflective sapphire glass, with luminescent bevelled markers, paced by the hour and minute hands, also coated in a white luminescent material, provide optimum visibility, even in low lighting conditions. Orchestrating the ensemble, the “hour”, “second” and “minute” counters, positioned respectively at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, count the passing of time up to 12 hours, while a tachymeter scale measures speeds ranging from 50 to 400 kmph.
Distinctive with its central clasp, which is emblematic of the collection, the strap in elastogator – rubber with a crocodile imprint, lined with a synthetic material – which is gentle to wear, completes the chic sports allure of this timepiece.
Designed, conceived, assembled, regulated and checked in the workshops of the Michel Herbelin brand, the Newport Yacht Club automatic chronograph inherits a legacy of French watch-making expertise, with its roots established in the Jura massif in Franche-Comté since 1947. Water resistant to 100 metres, it contains an automatic self-winding mechanical movement of Swiss manufacture (Sellita SW500), the guarantee of quality and precision.
Oscillating at 28,800 vibrations an hour, and with 25 rubies, it can be admired through a transparent case back revealing a “Geneva waves” decorated oscillation weight. With a comfortable power reserve of 42 hours, this Tricompax “C” chronograph boasts every asset required to accompany a man in his day to day activities.
On sale from March, this new version is an addition to the Newport Yacht Club collection, created in 1988. Inspired by the portholes of transatlantic sailing ships, it owes its name “Newport” to the Rhode Island marina that has for many years hosted the America’s Cup.
