With an elegant tonneau-shaped case, it is a progression from the rectangular cases of the existing men’s models in the collection. Also, it complements the new Art Déco women’s watches with barrel-shaped cases launched in late 2020. Limited to 300 individually numbered pieces, the watch has a manual-wind Sellita SW216-1 movement.
The DNA of the Herbelin brand is successfully communicated through its ever-present attention to detail. Firstly, the polished 39mm x 33mm case has the double ridged detail that is the thread that runs throughout the Art Déco collection. Secondly, the dial has been meticulously designed with Clous de Paris guilloché finishing at the centre adding texture and depth. Additionally, a rectangular minute track surrounds the textured panel with stylised roman numerals against a plain background. Also, a subsidiary second dial is a nice detail and highlights the mechanical movement.
Blued hour and minute hands add a touch of class. Similarly, they complement the blue cabochon set in the fluted crown. Turn the watch over and it is possible to view the mechanical movement via the glass caseback.
Finally, a tan leather strap with white contrast stitching completes the classic look.
