Own a little piece of history…
This season Michel Herbelin have produced two very special watches to celebrate Newport Yacht Club – part of the flagship Newport collection. Inspired by the America’s Cup and the race to Newport, Rhode Island, Newport has been an integral part of Michel Herbelin’s iconic collection since 1988.
These two watches are feats of engineering achievement made in the historic image of Newport but with an incredible elegance and modern feel.
The fully open dial and transparent case of the Newport Yacht Club Skeleton (model 1655/SQ11) enables an unadulterated view, front and back, of the ruby studied 11 ½ SW200 Sellita Swiss Skeleton movement, generating 28,800 oscillations per hour and with a power reserve of 38 hours. The dial detailing echoes the portholes of transatlantic sailing ships.
The Open Heart window showing the 11 ½ SW200 Swiss automatic movement of this second timepiece fits delicately into the mother of pearl dial (model 1655/CO19). The case back again is transparent keeping the view of the movement open to the wearer.
With both models only being made in a limited edition of 100 and each piece individually numbered, this is a rare opportunity to own your very own part of Michel Herbelin history.
