Givenchy’s debut in the watchmaking industry got everyone talking, with the watch’s unusual form structure marked by its skeletal exterior adorning its dial, added with a touch of the contemporary with the NATO wrist strap instead of plaid leather ones.
The brand now brings its iconic Seventeen timepiece a notch higher, by overhauling the inner workings of the watch which puts it right in the alley of horological purists and tastemakers alike. The heart of this watch is powered by the automatic winding caliber ETA 2892, known for its high accuracy and reliability in the watchmaking industry. The transparent sapphire caseback reveals its precious golden movement in its full glory, keeping in customs with the traditional codes of Swiss watchmaking while adhering to the designer language of Givenchy.
The lightweight satin-finished titanium case sets the automatic edition apart from the quartz version in stainless steel, while the red colour accentuates the smooth sweeping motion of the second hand, characteristic of mechanical watches. The vintage-colored luminescent dial and hands make it perfectly readable in the dark.
This masculine reiteration comes with two interchangeable black NATO straps, one in grosgrain nylon and one in raw-cut edge calfskin. It will be exclusively available from this month at Givenchy boutiques around the world.
The Seventeen Titanium Automatic Edition retails for SGD3,650 and is available exclusively at Givenchy #01-41 Paragon Orchard.
