Influenced by pocket watches and the finest german watchmaking, Petermann Bédat unveils in 2018 their very first timepiece, a 340-hours work of art featuring the in-house dead-beat second caliber 171. The 30mm caliber is regulated by a large “Breguet-style” balance wheel, and an impressive designed dead-beat ancre.
Entirely decorated by hand, the plate & bridges are made of german silver, displaying different kind of finishing on both sides: inward beveling, black-mirror polish on steel parts, Côtes de Genève, Sunray & Circular graining...
Inspired by the 60s grail era, the dial represents the new design language of the brand. This new semi-open dial has been created to highlight the craftmanship within. The central plate cut-outs are designed to frame the nicely sized rubies, as they are one of the vital elements of the movement.
The second series
In October 2021, Petermann Bédat unveils an alteration of the 1967, the dial and the case of this 25 pieces limited edition are now made out of grade 5 titanium.
We wanted a bright blue dial as it offers the most vivid palette, anodization on TI was an evidence.
Working again with Comblémine, they gave us a perfect result knowing that titanium is very hard to work with.
It takes one and a half more time to make the hand finish beveling, but twice rewarding when you achieve the quality we are looking for.
