At Baselworld 2011 the Swiss watchmaker will present its new Atlantic Seaport Day Retrograde watch.
Available both with a Swiss quartz Ronda 7004.P movement and with the well-known automatic ETA 2824-2 caliber, the watch will feature a retrograde day of week indicator, an off-centered big date aperture at 1 o’clock and an oversized subsidiary seconds display at 6 o’clock.
All of this is packed inside and elegantly shaped 41 mm case, which is going to be available either in surgical-grade stainless steel or yellow gold-plated steel.
Correct me if I am wrong, but the watch looks like it has been influenced by German watchmakers from Glashuette.
Still, it is a nice timepiece for those searching for a dressy, yet affordable watch that looks like a watch of their dream that also costs like a Golf-class vehicle.
I am not sure how much it will cost, but the quartz-powered version will probably retail well below the €1000 mark.
