Sorry no more offers available

The Michel Herbelin Inspiration Automatic is based on one of the brand’s original 1950’s designs. Michel Herbelin founded his eponymous watch company in 1947. This handsome timepiece is inspired by one of Michel’s original, key designs. Updated in terms of specification, this is a beautifully made watch with a retro feel.

Firstly, the stainless steel case is highly polished. Traditional in style with minimal bezel, it draws the eye in to the dial. Elegant in silver, it has applied gold tone hour indexes. These are pointed and give the watch a vintage look. Similarly, the gold tone hour and minute hands are sword-shaped to complement the hour markers. Additionally, a black minute track also ensures the dial is legible. Moreover, a date indicator at 6 o’clock is a useful feature. Finally, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the dial.

The retro look is carried through to the crown which is fluted and set with a blue cabochon stone. A brown leather with stitched sides and a stainless steel pin buckle completes the line-up.

Equipped with a reliable Swiss Sellita movement, the Herbelin Inspiration Automatic is a precision timepiece. For complete peace of mind, it is covered by a three year manufacturer’s warranty.

    Having been disappointed by another larger company not having the advertised stock I called Suzie to confirm the watch was available. During the course of the day I went back and forth a few times with Suzie via email confirming bits and bobs. The watch then arrived the next day with everything perfect. Extremely happy, couldn’t recommend them more highly
