Dubai Watch Week is a perfect platform for presenting limited editions and unique pieces. For the Ferdinand Berthoud teams, it is the opportunity to present a bead-blasted titanium version of its award-winning FB 1 Chronometer, demonstrating once again their ability to surprise us with each of their creations.
The Ferdinand Berthoud ChronomÃ¨tre FB1 was the first model presented by Ferdinand Berthoud to fine watchmaking connoisseurs in 2016. Presented in a 44mm octagonal case and driven by an exceptional movement with a tourbillon regulator, a fusÃ©e-and-chain and a Maltese Cross stopwork, the ChronomÃ¨tre FB1 received several industry accolades, including the Aiguille d’Or at the Grand Prix dâ€™Horlogerie de GenÃ¨ve in 2016.
Each of Ferdinand Berthoudâ€™s creations has its own identity and the unique piece unveiled on the occasion of the 2021 edition of Dubai Watch Week is presented in a sporty yet elegant bead-blasted titanium case (the watch weighing just 80g). Its silvered galvanic dial features an offset circular blue hour and minute subdial with white Arabic numerals. The dagger-shaped skeletonized hour and minute hands are fashioned out of white gold. Inside is the hand-wound Calibre FB-T.FC-2, the version of the FB 1 chronometer fitted with sapphire bridges â€“ these offer an unimpeded view on the splendid movement architecture, its intricacies and the impressive attention to detail lavished on the hand-decoration. Its precision is officially certified by the COSC.
The Ferdinand Berthoud ChronomÃ¨tre FB1.4-3 comes on a dark blue alligator strap with an alligator lining. It is secured with a safety folding buckle in titanium. this unique piece is priced at CHF 198,000.
