In 1973, in the heart of the French Jura Mountains, Emile Pequignet creates the eponymous brand combining boldness and creativity. Today, Pequignet is one of the last French independent watchmaker, offering original quality timepieces. Deeply attached to values such as the love of handcraft, Pequignet assures day after day the respect for watchmaking tradition.
In 2011, the Pequignet Manufacture takes up the challenge to create its own movement entirely conceived in the Pequignet Haute Horlogerie Laboratory in Morteau. For more than 40 years, the Calibre Royal®, symbol of the French Haute Horlogerie rebirth, has been the only French Manufacture Haute Horlogerie caliber. Its elaboration required several years of adjustment and enabled the brand to file eight international patents. Its performances, its beauty and its precision have been internationally recognized. Moreover, specialized press awarded it several prizes, the last one being the “Best watch of the year 2014″ by the 0024 Watchworld magazine.
Pequignet presents one of its new creations in a limited edition: the Royale Titane Large Date Black Caliber. Inspired by the Pilot style, this timepiece with elegant profile is a combination of modernity and innovation. Its black titanium 44mm case, its black dial, its Luminova indexes and hands or even its black vulcanized rubber strap make it a timepiece full of character combining performance and elegance. Conceived in the Manufacture Haute Horlogerie Laboratory, this new limited edition is sold to 50 pieces; 30 with date display in English and 20 with date display in French.
This new Pequignet creation gives one more time evidence of the attachment of the Manufacture to conceive quality models, accessible for the fine watches amateurs. Indeed, the Calibre Royal® is a 318 components movement with multiple complications such as power reserve, moon phase indicator or date change with instantaneous triple jump at a price that defies all competition.
