Just Landed: Herbelin Galet Collection
With their stunning new Galet collection, Herbelin have struck the right chord once again. Created as a women’s only collection, Galet takes inspiration from the simple beauty of pebbles and the natural world. Clean lines flow effortlessly from the elegant round case to the classical bracelet. Available in 3 case sizes and with the option of a Swiss quartz or automatic movement, the collection offers a contemporary timepiece for every woman. Here we take an in-depth look at each model and tell you all you need to know.
Herbelin Galet 28mm Quartz
The smallest of the 3 case diameters, the 28mm version (ref. 17430) has a Swiss Ronda quartz movement. Available in either stainless steel or two tone steel and yellow gold PVD versions, the two dial options include silver guilloché or Mother of Pearl. Both stainless steel models have rather elegant blued hour and minute hands which complement the blue cabochon set in the crown.
Herbelin Galet 31.5mm Quartz
Staying with the Quartz movement, the second version of the Galet has a larger 31.5mm case diameter (ref. 10630). This larger option has an additional two tone stainless steel and rose gold PVD variant which is very attractive in both the silver and Mother of Pearl dial varieties. Also, a small seconds display at 6 o’clock adds an interesting touch.
Herbelin Galet 33.5mm Automatic
Finally, equipped with an automatic Swiss Sellita movement, the Herbelin Galet Automatic has a 41 hour power reserve (ref.1630). Offered with a centre seconds hand, it also features a date indicator at 6 o’clock. As per the 28mm quartz version, the Galet Automatic is only currently offered in steel or two tone steel and yellow gold versions (no two tone rose version… yet!).
