Corniche Heritage Chronograph Bleu Ardoise LE
Model no.: COR.H39C.BADS
A Perfect Shade of Slate Blue Complemented by Pops of Orange
Corniche celebrates spring with a blue watch in the limited edition Bleu Ardoise. A sophisticated tone of slate blue is chosen as the palette for this chronograph. Classic Arabic numerals and Corniche's tachymetric scale can be found on the dial, accentuated by pops of vivid orange. Get a perfect mix of sportiness and sophistication with the Bleu Ardoise.
The watch sports a highly wearable 39mm case diameter and is powered by Seiko’s renowned VK64 Hybrid Movement. The renowned VK64 Meca Quartz from Seiko is a so-called “hybrid movement” combining quartz technology with mechanical movements to form an engine that balances the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Whilst the timekeeping mechanism is essentially quartz, you’ll notice the “meca” part of the equation come into play every time you reset the chronograph. With components taken directly from Seiko's own in-house mechanical chronographs, the chronograph hands are disengaged from the quartz motor and are snapped back to zero, meaning you don't get that sweep back to zero that is representative for standard quartz chronos. Rather, you get a timepiece that combines the accuracy of quartz with the distinct look and feel of a mechanical chronograph. The central chronograph hands tick five times per second, just like movements of old.
Corniche has a simple mission: to help people look great while keeping track of their most precious possession - time. Inspiration for Corniche’s elegant, minimalist design stems from the relaxed chic vibes associated with the Côte d’Azur, where the brand’s founders spent most of their summers. From its regular collections to the limited editions, Corniche strives to make the ordinary extraordinary and the everyday timeless.
