The product of a unique journey in modern watchmaking, the Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1.3 is the most exclusive to date. The case, in platinum, is distinguished by its shape and by its complexity. The partially openworked, nickel silver dial displays a subtle and discerning play on colour.
The movement is endowed with complications which are inspired by Ferdinand Berthoud's marine chronometers – highly prized scientific instruments in the eighteenth century. And still the words "suspended tourbillon", "constant force" or "fusee-and-chain" do not do justice to the extreme sophistication of this calibre. The philosophy that drives Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud goes beyond tributes, reproductions or reinterpretations. It is far more demanding; it transposes the excellence that was the only goal of this master horologist, clockmaker to the King and to the Navy, into the language of contemporary watchmaking. This Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1.3 is an exclusive Haute Horlogerie timepiece and a comprehensive work of horology that is available only from the company's select network of retail partners.
