Inspiration

Overview

After Olivier Jonquet set out his stall in no uncertain terms with his first limited edition, the Elie, it was quickly apparent that there was a hunger for his sort of watchmaking – French to the core and designed with a classical flair rare for our age. Its follow-up, the Carrosse is bestowed with a bolder wrist presence, up from 38mm diameter to a curvaceous 43.5mm, and an even bolder face, painted delicately and ornately in the 18th-century style of regal carriage clocks – realised here as embossed cartouche.

In the heart is 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 is a symphony of diligently sourced French components, from the high-grade 316L steel case, to the bespoke, golden OJ hands. By owning this watch, you are playing a part in preserving a French cottage’s traditional crafts that deserve to stay. 

Inspiration

Designed to sit alongside Olivier Jonquet’s core “Capitaine” collection, the limited-edition Carrosse, named after both the regal horse-drawn coach of France’s old royalty, and the carriage clocks that decorated their salons, is a beautiful throwback to the origins and culture of French horology.

In The Know

“Alongside the two regular watches (non-limited) is a first limited edition, named the Carosse, which definitely pays tribute to pocket watches from the 19th century.” Monochrome

“…the dial has the same design as you sometimes can find on these old fashioned clocks, and this one is combined with golden hand. The result is even more dramatic than the regular white dialed version.” WatchisThis?!

“where this piece turns out to be radically different, is its dial and movement. The classic Breguet white dial with the first model is more worked with its blue Roman numerals with curved cartridges and its baroque gold-tone hands, exclusive to the brand.” Montres de Luxe
