Paying homage to the eponymous brand’s founder, who was a member of the Geneva Yacht Club, while also enjoying today’s challenges, a new freelancer watch arrives to accompany the crew ahead.

The powerful design has a 42.5mm diameter case, echoing the dynamics of diving watches, a luminescent indicator, and unidirectional rotating bezel in black ceramic with white, green, or orange graduation, as well as a screwed-down crown. Readability is ensured by the Super-Luminova, and the folding clasp of its rubber watch strap with double push-security allows adjustment and resistance. After passing numerous tests of resistance to impact, magnetic waves, pressure, and temperature changes, the new timepiece showed values of performance, precision, and innovation.
