New: Pictures of the Petermann-Bédat X Auffret Paris Only Watch
The movement takes Petermann Bédat’s design language by their swan-neck regulator system while Auffret Paris’s aesthetic codes are seen on the click system and the charbonnage at the surface of the bridges.
The dial is crafted from flame-whitened solid silver, engraved, and adorned with rose gold indexes. The hour and minute hands are made of rose gold, while the seconds hand is flame-blued steel. The stainless-steel case reflects Petermann Bédat’s visual identity.
The three-hand chronometer movement, which is based on a Zenith 135, was reimagined by the watchmakers, incorporating new aesthetics for the bridges. The collaboration extended to Fleury Manufacture, where the main components underwent precise machining.
This collaboration showcases craftsmanship, design, and horological expertise.
