TOUR EIFFEL - The tiny wheel with big ideas

SAINT HONORE pays a new tribute to the “Iron Lady” with a new version of its “Tour Eiffel” watch.

This 2017 edition is equipped with an original small second hand that echoes the elevator wheels of the famous French monument.

Unveiled in 2015 to mark SAINT HONORE’s 130th anniversary, the “Tour Eiffel” is the first – and only – watch to be made with a bezel taken from the steel used to make the girders in the Eiffel Tower, one of the most famous landmarks in the world.

This year, SAINT HONORE is giving its iconic model a new look, by adding an automatic movement with a small second hand. This distinctive feature is positioned at 7am on the dial, and takes the shape and red colour of the giant elevator wheels, which can be seen on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.

This new version also differs from the original model in that it sports a crown positioned at 4 o’clock and date display at 3 o’clock. It obviously retains its characteristic lattice pattern, inspired by the architecture of the “Iron Lady”, for the bezel, crown, dial and oscillating weight of the movement, which can be seen from the back.

Fitted with a stylish brown “croco design” leather strap, there are only 64 pieces of the 2017 version of the “Tour Eiffel” watch; the number 64 being an additional reference to the elevator wheels, with exactly 32 spokes operating in pairs.

This is a new and unique opportunity to wear a piece of history around your wrist.
