Rich history flows through to modern ClassicBASELWORLD 2013: The Classic Automatic von Claude Bernard
The new Classic Automatic from Claude Bernard is a watch for the 21st Century but steeped in the centuries-old values of Swiss watchmaking at its finest.
Elegant, chic, with a beautifully simple dial, the Classic Automatic is hand-assembled in Les Genevez by Claude Bernard’s team of expert craftsmen and women who today are proud to continue the delicate art of creating fantastic, lasting timepieces just as their predecessors did for 300 years.
Powered by a Claude Bernard 80 automatic calibre, the 42mm Classic Automatic is housed in a stainless steel case with pink PVD coating. Through the transparent caseback the wearer can see the Classic Automatic’s superbly reliable beating heart and be dazzled by the sheer ingenuity of producing these miniature mechanical marvels.
Water-resistant to 5 ATM (50 metres, 150 feet), the Classic Automatic’s brown chocolate dial is handsomely offset by a brown genuine leather strap. The Classic Automatic is a stunning piece that blends desirability with functionality; the dial is clean and uncluttered, displaying the time and date in the most accurate, easily read manner as possible.
And despite its exquisite production values, this is one Swiss classic that watch enthusiasts the world over will be able to afford - and treasure for life.
