Reflect Chrono Skeleton

Reflect Chrono Skeleton

The Reflect case is a brand new creation on which the deLaCour creative team has been working on for quite some time.

Combining a strong and timeless character, this watch is an incredible balance between modernity and tradition.

The inspiration behind this new shape is based on the design principles and know-how of deLaCour’s iconic elliptical case. Moreover, the watch displays the features that make the originality of the brand, namely the folded horns and the elongated silhouette of the case.

This smaller new model upholds the brand’s DNA.

deLaCour preserves its iconic elliptical shape with smooth-edged angles, decorated with distinctive screws. The multifaceted case reflects the light on all the titanium surfaces. On the flanks, semi circle appliques embellish the case.

A few months ago, delaCour launched a limited edition of 9 pieces under the Reflect Tourbillon collection. The Reflect Chrono Skeleton sustains the same avant-garde design in a titanium case. This skeleton chisels time. This timepiece is a main piece of the delaCour’s collections.

The Reflect Chrono Skeleton will be produced in a limited edition of 33 pieces.

Each side of the watch features a sapphire crystal glass thus entirely revealing the automatic winding movement. In this formidable maze, the gears opt for refinement. The light patterns are most remarkable on this chronograph thanks to a multi-tiered architecture.

Reflect Chrono Skeleton detail

The openwork dial reveals the gears, the escapement and the balance. The structure of the Reflect Chrono Skeleton, transforms the material into a living mechanism and exposes each of its manufactured components.

Three pierced circles act as counter indicators:

At 12 o’clock the minute indicator, at 3 o’clock the date indicator and at 6 o’clock the hour indicator.

True to the spirit of the skeleton movement, the openwork hands are luminescent at their ends. The seconds-hand is red to facilitate reading during timing mode.

The Reflect Chrono Skeleton is waterproof up to 5 ATM and is completed with a hand-stitched crocodile strap or a natural rubber strap.

The Reflect Chrono Skeleton is a powerful expression at the service of an exceptional mechanism. Technical excellence and formidable designs are the signatures of delaCour. A stylish expression of watchmaking know-how, willingly extravagant, this timepiece carries watchmaking to new horizons.

City Medium Tourbillon

deLaCour offers us a Haute Complication version for Women, the City M Tourbillon, a limited edition of only 3 watches.

Finely set with diamonds, this deLaCour watch with flying tourbillon, offers women the opportunity to enter the world of Haute Complication.

Its flying tourbillon, taken from the Tourbillon Reflect, devoid of upper deck, preserving the mechanical hand-wound movement, is the result of close collaboration between deLaCour and Master Swiss Watchmakers.

A manufacture caliber with contemporary design.

Its unusual cylindrical construction, extremely complex in its implementation, ensures a perfect visual harmony of the timepiece.

Placed in the iconic elliptical case of the brand, this tourbillon movement seems to be floating. The four rigid corundum columns, which make up its structure, release masterfully the interior space of the watch and reveal the gear train in all its purity.

The delicate insertion of these cylinders, fitting perfectly in a perpendicular axis structure, act as bridges and grant maximum rigidity to the movement.

deLaCour has opted for a pure dial , leaving only the two baguette-shaped hands to read the time. No index or number has been added on this gem, allowing it to show its sparkling diamond dressing and the purity of its flying tourbillon.

The hand-wound timepiece has an autonomy of 95 hours, controllable through a discrete indicator positioned at 11 o’clock.

A hand-stitched crocodile strap completes the elegant dressing of this timepiece.

deLaCour has emerged during recent years as a watchmaking and jewelry brand. Boosted by the success of the City line, the creative spirit of the brand has worked to develop several lines of extraordinarily female models, strongly connoted by its vocation of creation.

deLaCour and Titanium

Saqra – Reflect Tourbillon

Longtime considered a rare material, reserved for elitist, titanium is now recognized for its many remarkable physical and mechanical properties, such as resistance to corrosion and erosion or its lightness.

Back in 2003 deLaCour introduced the Bichrono watch, entirely made of titanium.

This model, supersized, was awarded the maximum score for its manufacturing with this noble material.by the magazine Montres in France.

Thus, the Geneva-based watchmaker extended the use of this material on different models reaching nowadays the total production of men watches in titanium or gold/titanium, granting its buyer, lightness and flexibility while wearing it.

It should be noted that deLaCour is currently one of the few watchmakers setting its timepieces on this extremely hard material.

Taming the titanium to let him bend to the will of creation of deLaCour, was an exercise in patience and skill that can only be achieved through rigorous work in our Swiss workshops.

Transform the hardness of titanium into a luxurious timepiece or jewel can only refer to an act of alchemy.

Although lightweight and hypoallergenic, titanium is not an obvious material for a Haute Horlogerie watch as demonstrated by deLaCour, recognized for its watchmaking and jewelery experience; to work such a material as titanium will increase the appeal of its iconic models.

It is a bet that the Geneva watch house has taken throughout its career, but also the will of the brand to offer a style that can appeal to all tastes.
