Emile Chouriet Héritier Collection - Héritier Geneva Edition & Héritier with Windows

Established by 18th century watchmaker Emile Chouriet, the Geneva based luxury watch brand bearing the founder’s name, pays tribute to the city affectionately known as the “city at the top of the lake” by presenting new Heritier models.
Two Genevan icons have been engraved on the new Heritier’s removable case back: the huge Jet d’Eau located in the middle of Lake Geneva and the Bâtiment des Forces Motrices, a 19th century hydro power plant nestled on the Rhône. Personalisable text beneath each of these delicate designs gives the customer a unique chance to seal a Genevan memory, heartfelt message or meaningful quote for eternity.
Equipped with a self winding movement based on ETA2834, this classic timepiece boasts a classic ivory dial featuring an engine-turned centre with horizontal Côtes de Genève stripes and silver Roman hour numerals. The exclusive new Heritier Special Edition Geneva is only available at the Emile Chouriet studio in Geneva.

Héritier with Windows
In this variation of Heritier line, the designers at the Geneva based watch brand have put their stylish mid-20th century spin. The traditional hour and minute hands have made way for four fan-shaped displays on the new Heritier’s glowing grey dial. The way you tell the time is different; it’s clean and vertical. First you see the hour in the black-on-white display at 12 then you look down to see the minutes at 6. The same goes for the date with the day at the top and the date at the bottom.
Discs bring the unique design to life powered by a selfwinding mechanical movement inside the 40mm steel case topped with Emile Chouriet’s signature double gadroon lugs.
