For over a century, Saint Honoré has been synonymous with the world-famous “Paris-Style” and has created collections of unparalleled design. The trendy watchmaker has now taken the wraps off its new creation – the Haussman Forty 7-24 watch. Inspired by car racing, the new automatic super chronograph puts the Le Mans spirit on your wrist. The chronograph times become clear and admired through skillfully architected reading.

The silver-tinted dial recalls the dashboard of a racing car, with its round counters, brightly colored hands and the tachymetric scale that shows up to 407 km/h, which symbolizes the fastest speed ever achieved in the Le Mans.

The outsized orange figure 15 pays tribute to the start time for the mythical 24 Hours races: 15 hours (3 p.m.). The brand’s two racing driver ambassadors, Stéphane Sarrazin for Peugeot and Christophe Tinseau for Pescarolo, wore the new Haussman Forty7-24 when it made its debut at the Spa 1,000 (Intercontinental Le Mans Cup). The Haussman Forty 7-24 has the automatic Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement, which is visible through a transparent crystal.

The self-winding mechanical movement has a 44-hour power reserve and offers the hour, minute and small second functions combined with a 3-counter chronograph system. The Haussman Forty 7-24 chronograph comes with exclusive straps – black, honeycomb rubber and special leather with holes and orange overstitching.

Thanks, Saint Honore
