A perfect balance between black and white, the Royale Saphir Black Parhelion impresses with its exceptional French mechanism (the Calibre Royal®), as well as its originality. The hour and minute hands and the hour markers are silvered and feature a Luminova coating for optimum visibility. A double date aperture with a single instant jump is positioned at 12 o'clock, indicating both the day of the week and the date. Its features include, at 4 o'clock, a small seconds indicator, at 6 o'clock, a day/night indicator marked with the central hands and finally, at 8 o'clock, an 88-hour power reserve indicator. With its rounded 42mm case, the Royale Saphir is a real watchmaking feat that fascinates both aesthetes and lovers of exceptional watchmaking.
The Royale Saphir Black Parhelion is one of the five models of the "Ombre set Lumières" Collection presented for the first time at Watches & Wonders 2023 in Geneva. It’s inspired by the phenomena of shadows and lights caused by the sun. The Royale Saphir is thus reinvented with the Dawn White, Eclipse White, Shade Grey, Black Parhelion or Night Black models.
The Royale Collection is operated by the Calibre Royal®, conceived, prototyped, controlled and assembled in the Pequignet Haute Horlogerie laboratories in Morteau. Its design required no less than 279 business plans; it is made of 318 components, 316 of which were designed specifically by our company. With 8 international patents, Calibre Royal® is a real masterpiece of innovation... and 100% French!
Lovers of watch-making will be charmed by the transparent back to its case, which reveals the balance wheel and the entire movement. The oscillating weights are positioned to allow high visibility. The large balance wheel, the lever and the swivel escape wheel can be viewed without difficulty.
