June 12, 2019: With over 130 years of history in perpetuating watchmaking tradition, SAINT HONORÉ is a prestigious luxury brand that reflects the Parisian joie de vivre of living and superior French artistry that has been mastered through years of research, learning and advancement.
The brand takes its name from the Saint Honore Street – legendary Parisian address, home of great jewellers and watchmakers — symbolizing the French way of life. Innovation along with tradition is the true driving force of the company. SAINT HONORÉ has always placed great emphasis on the development of new technologies, new movements and quest for new ideas.
Kiera Chaplin, granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin and the new muse of SAINT HONORÉ, inspired the brand in the creation of its latest collections for women. Reflecting Kiera’s personal style, the collection is Parisian in its heart but worldly in its outlook. Elegant, jovial and optimistic, Kiera Chaplin perfectly incarnates the natural elegance of today’s SAINT HONORÉ woman.
A pioneer in the contemporary luxury watch segment, SAINT HONORÉ today is present in over 60 countries and has a global presence and stature by virtue of its innovative designs that has coveted the interest of royalties and fashion connoisseurs alike.
Glamorous, feminine, precious... only the best words can describe the new Gala!
Its slender design, myriad sparkling diamonds, mother-of-pearl dial and delicate strap gives it a magical, enchanting and irresistibly feminine look.
Combining watchmaking expertise with the magic of precious stones, the new SAINT HONORÉ creation shines with the originality of its design, immediately capturing the eye. A dazzling row of “full cut” diamonds are set into the bezel, which surrounds a magnificent dial adorned with natural white mother-of-pearl.
The effect is dazzling! Each of the diamonds, including those set into the dial, helps bring out the exquisite natural shimmer of the mother-of-pearl, making Gala an extraordinary timepiece that brings beauty to time. Whether you choose the 29mm or 34mm diameter, the presence of a contour with a rounded “ridged” decoration adds great beauty to the dial.
SAINT HONORÉ broadens its horizon by proposing a steel bracelet version made up of small oblong links that are very delicate and feminine.
With their jewellery-like designs, the various versions of the new Gala is decked in opulence and splendor.
TOUR EIFFEL 1885
The SAINT HONORÉ house of watchmaking unveils a new version of its iconic “Tour Eiffel” timepiece, featuring a world première: a bracelet fashioned with metal powder from the actual Eiffel Tower. Named “Tour Eiffel 1885” in honor of the year that SAINT HONORÉ was founded, this timepiece pays an unprecedented tribute to the Eiffel Tower. In addition to its bezel crafted in steel from the “Iron Lady”, it is mounted on a bracelet that contains metal from the world-famous monument.
The new “Tour Eiffel 1885” timepiece is equipped with a bracelet made of a mixture of polyurethane and steel powder from the tower itself. The material produced through this ingenious process cools to reveal an attractive, surprising metallic surface patina. Produced one by one according to an artisanal technique, no two bracelets are alike: each is a one-off.
On the front side, the bracelet reflects the design of various elements of the Eiffel Tower’s structure (arch, lattices, etc.) The reverse side bears the names of the seventy-two researchers that Gustave Eiffel had engraved on the monumental structure when it was built for the Exposition Universelle of 1889. The names of these illustrious scientists, engineers and industrials who honored France from 1789 to 1889 appear in 60cm-high gold letters along the surround of the first floor.
Created in 2015 for the 130th anniversary of SAINT HONORÉ, the “Tour Eiffel” watch is the first timepiece in the world – and indeed the only one – to feature a bezel crafted from the steel girders of the famous monument. In addition to this feat, today the French watchmaker introduces a bracelet containing particles of the very soul of the Eiffel Tower.
Powered by a self-winding Swiss Made “three-hands-and-date” movement, the “Tour Eiffel 1885” model is equipped with a 42mm steel watch case, and like all the models of the collection, it is adorned with a decoration of sculpted lattices. Directly inspired by the architecture of the “Iron Lady”, the decoration brings a distinctive look to the bezel, crown, open worked dial and oscillating mass, of which the mechanism is visible through the transparent case back.
TOUR EIFFEL RED WHEELS
SAINT HONORÉ pays 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 HONORÉ’s 130th anniversary, the “Tour Eiffel” is the first – and only – watch to have a bezel made from the steel used to make the girders in the Eiffel Tower, one of the most famous landmarks in the world.
This year, SAINT HONORÉ 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 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.
OPERA BY KIERA CHAPLIN
Bold and colourful
Kiera Chaplin, SAINT HONORÉ’s charming ambassador since 2018, is collaborating with our brand this year for the launch of our leading collections’ newest edition: Opera by Kiera Chaplin.
With its 33 mm round case and its distinctive bejeweled indices, the feminine Opera timepiece gets a new look.
This bold, colorful collection draws its inspiration from the world of fashion. Very popular this year, the animal print particularly appealed to Kiera Chaplin, who wanted an “haute couture” touch of originality for these pieces.
All the details are concentrated on the dial, Opera by Kiera Chaplin plays on seduction through a combination of materials and colours along with the magic of semi-precious stones.
The “embossed guilloche” dial reveals a wild spirit and is available in four colour variations: beige, light grey, charcoal grey and dark green. These beautiful colours are highlighted by a graphic texture, whose dappled shades bring life to the dial.
Each dial is bedecked with semi-precious stone hour markers in bright red and fuchsia hues that contrast with the entire piece. SAINT HONORÉ goes one step further in the concept by offering a “leopard” print leather strap on one of the versions, which will not go unnoticed.
Let there be no doubt, this watch reflects the personality of Kiera Chaplin, who recently told us, “I have always loved watches that have a strong presence so that is why I chose to do my collection with bold colours and prints. The collection is a bit edgy yet elegant. It is animal print inspired to bring out the sexy feline in you!”
Bold yet feminine
At first glance, Audacy captures attention with its resolutely innovative character. Its particularly inspired lines are combined with the ultimate watchmaking details: SAINT HONORÉ wanted to allow every aspect of the timepiece to shine, resulting in an exclusive piece.
The perfectly round 37mm case is particularly eye-catching. So is the “Clous de Paris” decoration that embellishes the bezel in a meticulously applied two-row pattern.
Audacy features sublime guilloché dials in charming colours. Whether in red, navy, silver, beige or black, each one is decorated with hour-markers and silver-plated hands for perfect readability.
Another visual hallmark of the collection is the off-centre crown at 4 o’clock, giving Audacy a unique look. Topped with a black onyx, the generously curved crown further accentuates the aura of prestige and refinement given off by this timepiece, which is both elegant and dazzling.
For the Audacy line, SAINT HONORÉ has also introduced bold colours rarely seen on watches, notably – glamorous beige, a sleek navy blue and a sparkling red.
Each crocodile-effect leather strap has been carefully chosen to complement the dials perfectly, thus giving Audacy a harmonious look that will delight the most exacting of watch lovers.
Audacy is certain to win the hearts of all women who are in quest of an exclusive, sophisticated timepiece.
For the modern man
Modernity and performance
SAINT HONORÉ launched the designs of the Haussman line in 2007 after noticing a great public interest in watches with powerful graphic designs.
Today, the line has matured, and SAINT HONORÉ is now bringing it a youthful update to make it a timeless icon and even an essential fashion accessory. The watchmaker has also chosen to emphasise the power of its geometric shape, taking the finesse of its cases a notch further.
Haussman is above all an exceptional instrument of measuring time. The precisely timed intervals is admired thanks to its skillfully structured dial.
In an elegant 43 mm stainless steel case, the blue dial with a “Clous de Paris” decoration highlights luminescent markers and hands, while azure counters align vertically to the left, offering excellent readability. The chronographs respectively measure 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours.
One of the visual signatures of the Haussman collection is the streamlined case, which plays on clean-cut angles and circles, and which reveals a distinctive attention to details: visible screws and a titanium colour finish on the bezel, a hexagonal crown, and oblong push-pieces.
A new steel bracelet that coordinates with the case, featuring polished and brushed effects, was designed to flatter this new collection.
A symbol of sportiness and modernity, the new Haussman remains an irresistible object of desire.
