Saqra

The Saqra is a timepice inspired by chakras, the energy epicenter of the human body.

Far from stereotypes, the Saqra watch is a daring timepiece offering an audacious design. It’s a perfect balance between a circle’s purity and a square’s boldness.

The Saqra is a timepiece inspired by an exceptional masterpiece. deLaCour reaffirms its profound attachment to its watchmaking heritage, the brand’s permanent inspiration.

The Saqra is the newcomer of the series. Created in 2007, its finer casing (9.5mm) conveys a sober and elegant design leading to a fresh concept of harmony and discretion.

Unlike the brand’s statement chronographs, bold and incisive, the Saqra is distinguished by a unique and noticeable design, obviously associated with deLaCour, thanks to its recognizable original shape.

Built with 3 elements, neither round nor rectangular, the Saqra features an elongated shape and case back screws sophisticated enough to allow deLaCour to demonstrate its watchmaking mastery and know-how.

Refined, the Saqra is available in a matte titanium case highlighted by polished flanks.

On the elegant anthracite lacquer dial, the Roman numerals are replaced with sophisticated black trapezoidal-type appliques. A window positioned at 3 o’clock indicates the date.  Strafed circles on the bezel prompt the affiliation to delaCour. The crown is turbine-type.

The hands are luminescent in their extremities and allow easy reading of the time.

The movement of the Saqra is self-winding (DC 261).

No details of the movement’s components escape the rules of high-end watchmaking that requires a flawless mechanical quality. Thus all parts of the movement from the plate to the smallest screw are carefully assembled and fitted individually using traditional watchmaking techniques, those skills that are practiced daily at deLaCour.

The Saqra is waterproof up to 5 atmospheres and is embellished with a hand-stitched crocodile strap.

A clear statement and representation of delaCour, the Saqra’s design is strong, pure and powerful. Its formidable identity sets a new reference code in the field.

As customary at delaCour, the Saqra will be produced in a limited edition of 50 pieces.

The Saqra collection pays homage to tradition and watchmaking in its most timeless form. It combines purity, sophistication and elegance.

Reflect Tourbillon

Reflect Tourbillon

The new case for the Reflect Tourbillon is the latest creation of deLaCour watches. An incredible balance between avant-gardism and tradition, combining a strong character and a timeless design.

The concept of this new shape is based on the design principles and know-how of the iconic elliptical-shape of this case created by deLaCour. It preserves the elongated outlines of the case and the lugs which make the originality of the brand.

This model becomes more classical with its rectangular shape and softened corners.

This limited edition of 9 titanium pieces, appear to illuminate from within thanks to the corundum tubes and an opening on the left side of the case.

This Tourbillon was developed with strict specifications and the expertise of a recognized team of Swiss watch manufacturers; giving birth to a contemporary designed manufacture caliber. Its outstanding cylindrical construction, extremely complex in its realization, ensures a perfect visual harmony of this timepiece.

An exceptional piece is born with a chassis that appears to be weightless. The four rigid tubes that compose its structure expose masterfully the interior of the watch and thereby reveals the gear train in all its purity.

This new model demonstrates the expertise of deLaCour and features two new technical advances:

First, the delicate insertion of the cylinders, adjusted to a perfectly perpendicular axe structure performing as bridges, gives a maximum rigidity to the movement.

Then, the extra gloss lacquered movement plates reflecting like mirrors, tastefully reflect the light. This is a novelty in modern watchmaking, bringing transparency to the movement, while accentuating the effect of weightlessness.

The flank of this timepiece, like its plates, reflects the heart of the watch.

This Tourbillon movement features a manual winding and 95 hours power reserve. Its Superluminova skeleton triangular pointed hands allow easy reading of the hours and minutes.

A hand-stitched crocodile strap stylishly completes this timepiece.

In terms of contemporary watchmaking, this watch radically reinterprets the formal technical and aesthetic approach of a “Grande
Complication” timepiece.
