Jaipur Watch Company Imperial Collection II Limited Edition

Jaipur Watch Company’s flagship line, the Imperial Collection is a fitting tribute to India’s rich history. The first series from this collection comprised of quartz movement powered wristwatches housing vintage King George VI coins. Now, the boutique watch brand based in Jaipur expands the Imperial Collection by launching a limited edition automatic watch series.
This, brand new automatic wrist watch collection pays tribute to George VI, the last ruler of the British Empire and the first head of commonwealth. In the Imperial II collection, each timepiece from the line is equipped with a self winding movement and boasts an antique 70 year old King George VI coin.
Measuring 46mm diameter and 12mm thickness, the round, gold plated case of this classic dress watch is fitted with a domed sapphire crystal glass. The screw in caseback accommodates a round, transparent sapphire crystal glass offering the view of the mechanical heart that beats inside the timepiece. Water resistance of the case is 50 meters (5 ATM). The unique shape of lugs adds further elegance to these classic wrist watches.
A vintage, King George VI coin acts as the inner dial of the timepiece. Available in different shades, the outer dial ring features golden indexes/dots as hour markers. Both hour and minute hands boast a unique, spade design. The central seconds hand features O counter balance. Inspired by the edges of a coin, the rose gold plated bezel features a fluted design.
The discreet crown at 2’o clock has fluted design at side for better grip. The cabochon (precious stone) at the centre of the crown has the same colour of outer dial and strap.
Jaipur Watch Company has chosen the popular Miyota 8215 self winding calibre manufactured by Citizen to equip the timepieces in the Imperial II collection. Beating at the rate of 21,600 vph, this 21 jewels automatic calibre delivers approximately 2 days of power reserve when fully wound.
The custom designed JWC rotor and other mechanisms of this mechanical watch movement can be admired through sapphire crystal caseback.
The Imperial II collection offers four classic versions based on the colour themes: Eclipse Black, Blood Red, Royal Blue and Forest Green. Production of Imperial Collection II will be limited to 50 pieces per colour version. Each timepiece comes with a matching leather strap with a beautiful butterfly clasp. Maximum Retail Price of the watch is INR 55,000 (Approximately US$ 820).
