Is there a more stylish way to celebrate a company's anniversary than with a watch specially created to mark the occasion? We think not – which is why we are presenting the 358 Anniversary, a special chronograph in a limited edition of just 500 watches.
This high-quality time-piece expresses its exclusivity with a charcoal grey-coloured dial carrying the years "1961 - 2011". The dial has been created electroplated and offers extremely high levels of protection against UV-induced discolouration. Further examples of the watch's finesse include the stainless steel case, the use of sapphire crystal in the domed crystal, and the transparent back. Technically, too, the 358 Anniversary is in a class of its own. Because the watch features a specially developed movement, the SZ05, based on the Valjoux 7750. Our aim here was to create even greater balance in the dial displays. Accordingly, the stop minute hand is now at 3 o'clock and the sweep second hand at 9 o'clock, making the 358 Anniversary supremely easy to read. This new design also allows the stop minutes to be read off in 60 divisions instead of the usual 30.
