For the first time, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud is participating in the "Only Watch" charity auction.

For the first time, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud is participating in the "Only Watch" charity auction. The unique piece FB 1 "Night Star” was especially created for the occasion. This model has a sandblasted anthracite-ceramised titanium case, and a frosted black dial with hands and numerals equipped with Super-LumiNova. On the case-back side, the Chronomètre FB 1 "Night Star" features three bevelled sapphire semi-bridges, providing a chance to admire the entire black rhodium-plated movement with fusée-and-chain transmission and direct-drive seconds.

Features

00
A play on colours is at the heart of the design of this one-of-a-kind model. It is the first ever designed by Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud to feature hands and numerals equipped with Super-LumiNova. This luminescent material, deliberately chosen in white, contrasts with the dark tones of the exterior and the frosted black dial, evoking the gleam of the stars in the night sky.

The choice of chamfered sapphire bridges for this FB-T.FC-2 calibre enables the gaze to plunge into the depths of the entirely black rhodium-plated tourbillon movement with fusee-and-chain transmission and direct-drive seconds.

Since its creation in 2005, Only Watch has raised more than 40 million Swiss francs thanks to watch Maisons who have donated a unique piece to be sold at auction on behalf of the association. Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud thus confirms the interest shown by the Chopard group in participating in this charity event ever since its first edition.
