Just announced at SIHH 2018 and the end of day two is the Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R-6.1. This is watch extremely durable and designed to stand the test of time with an ultra resistant carburized stainless steel case.
The case of this watch emulates the architecture inspired both by the Marine Clocks of Ferdinand Berthoud and by the suspension system of onboard chronometers.
Two octagonal stainless steel pieces give it the characteristic shape. At 2 and 11 o’clock there are two lateral portholes providing the opportunity for the wearer to admire the chain-and-fusee mechanism. There is an exhibition caseback complementing these two portholes also allowing you to admire the finishing on the movement.
The calibre is built with architecture in mind. The manual wind movement features 18 nickel silver bridges with titanium pillars surrounding the heart. This style construction would have been typical in 18th century marine chronometers and allows the symmetrical equilibrium of the movement.
