Description

Introduced in 2014, the Élégante is well-known for its titanium tortue case shape, legible luminescent dial, and long-lasting in-house quartz movement. Hassle-free and sport-adjacent, this timepiece is designed for the everyday life.

It took eight years of research and development to achieve the movement. It combines the performance of an electromechanical watch with elegance and precision.

The model features a mechanical motion detector visible at 4:30 o’clock. When the watch is motionless, the movement goes in standby mode and the hands stop moving. During the standby mode, the microprocessor continues to keep time. As soon as the watch is moved again, the hands set themselves automatically to the current time by taking the shortest path, either clockwise or counterclockwise.

This movement allows the time to be stopped and started again, which is the dream of all watchmakers.

 

This model comes with the International guarantee card and presentation case.
