Inspiration

Overview

For the dandy who prefers to operate by night, Olivier Jonquet’s “hero” watch, the cushion-shaped Capitaine is switched to stealth mode by smooth, black PVD coating and a black enameled dial, rather than white. This former’s high-tech treatment of titanium aluminium nitride not only lends a look worthy of Batman’s utility belt, but protects that gorgeous cushion case from scratches.

Driving the bespoke OJ hands is the rock-solid Swiss ETA 6498-1, or “Unitas” pocket-watch calibre, hand-finished with an exactitude 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.

Inspiration

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.

Style Guide

In The Know

“The young watchmaker is showing its maturity with its sophomore release, presenting two new ranges that are cooked up using mostly French ingredients.” Europastar

"…slightly different, mixing [Capitaine's] vintage feel with more modern and sportier appeal, thanks to the black case and enamel dial (a black enamel dial is always something to be appreciated…)." Monochrome

“Combined with the white hands, it results in a bit of a sinister watch, one you would expect Cardinal Armand Richelieu to wear would there have been watches during his time.” WatchisThis?!
