A graceful timepieceBaselworld 2018: The AEROWATCH 1942 Petite Seconde
The signature of traditional watchmaking artistry that has always characterized the family-owned Aerowatch company harmoniously comes to the fore in the 1942 Petite Seconde model. The guilloched dial underscores the prominence of the Roman numerals and pays tribute to more than a century of horological artisanship.
The 1942 collection embodies the company’s accrued know-how, reflected in classic sleekness which is also reminiscent of 20th-century pocket watches.
The watch presents itself as a paragon of immaculacy and timelessness. The engine-turned dial center adds a classic touch to this new Aerowatch creation. Time is tracked by the blued hands that glide along a railway-track minute scale.
The well organized dial is easily legible and contributes poise to the balanced design of the watch. The subsidiary seconds dial at 9 o'clock and the date display at 3 o'clock emphasize the harmony of its face. A cambered sapphire crystal protects the dial and enhances the distinctiveness of the 1942 Petite Seconde. With a case diameter of 42 mm, it fits snugly on any wrist.
The graceful timepiece is endowed with a self-winding movement decorated with Geneva striping. The owner can admire the pulsating inner life of the 1942 Petite Seconde through the display back.
A blue embossed leather strap with a fold-over clasp underscores the noble personality of this promising newcomer.
