Favre-Leuba has a long custom of making plunge watches. A few years prior, the brand presented the Raider Harpoon , a retro-themed jump watch whose peculiar plan highlighted a barrel shape case with double crowns and a one of a kind time show. The brand presently adds another variant, a more ‘apparatus watch’ take on the model with an all-black tone scheme.
The Favre-Leuba Raider Harpoon is an eccentric, retro-modern jump watch, planned with an attention on the fundamentals. 46mm in width, this monster of a watch includes just one hand. The moment hand – the lone vital sign when plunging – at the same time shows the hours on a pivoting plate outlining the dial. It is somewhat baffling from the start however you become accustomed to it and it dodges any disarray among the various hands. In the middle, the little seconds turning marker has no other utility than checking that the watch is as yet running (as needed by the ISO 6425 norm). The iridescent moment hand, hour circle, seconds pointer and markers make an unmistakable presentation even in faint light conditions.
This uncommon time show is driven by a programmed type whose restrictive module has been created in-house. The development depends on the attempted and-tried, solid Sellita SW 200-1, running at 28,800 vibrations each hour and with 38 hours of force save (an ETA clone).
The most current emphasis of the model holds a similar usefulness and look yet in a more rough and ‘device watch’ style. The case is as yet an astounding 46mm x 16.5mm. It is currently introduced in dim sandblasted PVD steel. The bi-shading, unidirectional bezel is black and yellow anodized aluminum (versus blue or orange as of recently). At 2 o’clock, the helium-alleviation valve takes the state of a second crown for simpler tasks. The screw down caseback guarantees a 500-meter water-opposition rating. All the markings are constantly adjusted and upstanding rather than situated arbitrarily which is often the situation for screwed casebacks.
The Favre-Leuba Raider Harpoon is completed with a coordinated elastic tie with a pin clasp. It retails for CHF 4,750 on an elastic lash or CHF 4,850 on a leather strap.
