In 2015, Chopard launched a new brand, named after one of the most important people in the evolution of precision watchmaking – Ferdinand Bertud.
Today, this brand Ferdinand Berthoud adds another watch to its impressive collection – Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1.
This watch can easily be considered a true wark for true connoisseurs by combining the turbillon / fuse-chain mechanism with the original display of controller type and an ultra-sturdy stainless steel case.
Based on the previous versions of Chronomètre FB 1, the new Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1 is homage to its manufacturers, with several complications inspired by scientific instruments and marine chronometers to improve precision.
But this watch is also powerful visually with its stunningly visible turbine on a minimalist dial.
The dial is made of nickel-plated silver with a rhodium black coating and has a unique type of regulator where all the indications are divided in order to achieve the best possible view.
New Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1 also has an innovative 44 mm diameter housing with the same design as FB 1 and an octagonal shape.
Only 20 stunning copies of this watch are created by raising the value of what will surely become the object of the collector’s lust. There are still no official price information, but we are sure it will be astronomical.
