While not terribly original, the automatic Cimier Time Square Chronograph (refs. 5106-SS011 in steel and 5106-BP021 in black PVD) delivers a nice combination of sportiness and elegance that makes it versatile if you don’t plan to wear it to a pool party or on a hiking trip.
The limited edition Cimier Bigmatic 16½ (ref. 6110-BP021) is powered by a legendary Unitas 6497-1 movement that you have probably never imagined in such a shape. Besides a serious redecoration, the good old caliber has also undergone an unusual modification. Initially designed in the 1950s as a hand-wound caliber, the mechanism was equipped with the brand’s own automatic winding system.
Among all Cimier models, their 1961 collection consists of a number of true masterpieces. The 2009 Petite Seconde Venom (Ref. 6102-BP021) is one of the most interesting models in this series. Created together with Jorg Stiel who played as a goalkeeper for the Swiss national soccer team, this eclectic watch combines constrained elegance of the dial with the screaming luxury of the yellow python strap.
In March 2009, during the annual Baselworld international trade show in Basel, Switzerland, Cimier has presented its Retrograde Automatic (ref. 5104-SS021) collection. The new line featured a complex-looking dial with retrograde annual calendar and power reserve indicators complementing the usual “three-hander” layout of the base caliber ETA 2892.
