SAINT HONORE COLOSEO VALJOUX: A CELEBRATION OF TIME




The “Valjoux” or ETA 7750 movement is the stuff of legends in watchmaking and now finds a natural home in the new Coloseo, a watch with clean lines and design that have garnered universal acclaim.

Imposing in both shape and size (44mm), the Coloseo’s refined features are equally impressive. Discovering the subtly of this exceptional piece requires careful observation of the chronograph’s three small discs at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock; the date window at 3 o’clock; and the three generously-sized Arab numerals engraved directly under the sapphire glass.

SAINT HONORE also kept true watch-lovers in mind when placing a sapphire glass on the case back, providing another means of admiring this new calibre. The mechanical self-winding movement can thus be freely viewed as the benchmark that it is. This opening lets true connoisseurs get a full sense of how carefully each detail and technical marvel was achieved: engraved oscillating weight, Côte de Genève décor, 25 jewels…

The Coloseo Valjoux is available in steel, pink gold, or titanium finish, and is further testament to Saint Honoré’s absolute mastery of the most cutting-edge timepiece techniques.
