With the Elie having established Olivier’s watchmaking credentials, this is the “hero” watch for a most modern French brand, bestowed with a bolder wrist presence, up from 38mm diameter to a curvaceous 43.5mm, plus a classical flair that’s rare these days.
Unlike the Elie, the Capitaine’s mechanics aren’t quite as French, as good-enough old stock is as rare as hen’s teeth – instead, we have the rock-solid Swiss ETA 6498-1, or “Unitas” pocket-watch calibre, fully-serviced with beautiful finishing that extends beyond the bare metal to blued screws, Geneva stripes and circular graining. Surrounding these precision parts, however, is a symphony of diligently sourced French components, from the high-grade 316L steel case, to the option of a hand-patinated calf Richelieu strap, made in a similar manner to handmade shoes.
Conceived as the core collection for Olivier Jonquet’s blossoming boutique brand, this is a 21st-century take on the classical timepiece, in contemporary proportions and driven by time-proven precision mechanics.
