Lebois & Co is praising its 85th birthday celebration today. The brand revived in 2014 and is in Dutch hands today. Today, Lebois & Co is uncovering the main live pictures of their upcoming watch, the Venturist Observatoire Chronométrique+ Certified Chronometer.
That’s a significant piece, and particularly the Observatoire Chronométrique+ Certified Chronometer needs a touch of clarifying. Yet, let’s examine the new Venturist first.
Lebois & Co Venturist Observatoire Chronométrique+
The Venturist watch is the second model that Lebois & Co presents. After the fruitful arrival of the Avantgarde Date (in three unique executions), Lebois & Co idea the time has come to come up with a device watch. In the event that you take a gander at the Venturist, you can’t reject that it has some Explorer-isk impacts. Furthermore, that’s not something terrible, by any means. The Rolex Explorer is – as I would see it – one of the most flawless instrument observes at any point delivered. It may even be my number one Rolex sports model, yet in any event the cleanest looking one. This Lebois & Co Venturist has a similar format with regards to the Arabic numerals and stick markers, on a dark foundation, and maybe the absence of a crown watch comes to mind also, however that’s about it. The state of the case is unique, and the size is 41.5mm (measurement) with a thickness of 10.5mm. Lebois & Co made a point to put sufficient detail on the dial of their Venturist to keep it outwardly engaging for quite a long time to come. The red printed ‘Venturist’ carries some tone to the dial. Underneath ‘Venturist’, you will discover ‘Officially Certified Chronometer’.
The authoritatively affirmed chronometer identifies with the Sellita based development inside this watch. You need to comprehend that having that line on the dial requires a brand to have its development affirmed by COSC. Rolex, Omega, and Breitling are the brands that produce most chronometer-guaranteed watches, however you will likewise discover it at more modest brands. Or then again less expensive brands. The thing is, it only says something regarding the development. The development should be shipped off to COSC, regularly matched with a modest dial and hands and a plastic crown, where the development at that point is being tested against the chronometer guidelines. Once completed, and passed, it gets the chronometer certification. The development is dispatched back to the watch producer and is fitted to the situation of the watch and gets the legitimate dial, hands, and crown. As indicated by certain brands, including Lebois & Co, this isn’t sufficient. For the Venturist, Lebois & Co picked Timelab to have their whole watch tested and confirmed against the Observatoire Chronométrique+ guidelines. This is a definitely more comprehensive test than the guidelines of COSC testing. For OC+, the whole watch is shipped off to Timelab in Geneva, where they will scrutinize it for 21 days. Aside from testing precision, Timelab additionally checks the force hold (and keep up exactness with low force save left), water-resistance tests (up to a 100 meters for the Venturist) and its weakness for attractive fields.
In this article , we clarified the idea of these tests and their significance for an apparatus watch like the Venturist.
A attractive toolwatch
Lebois & Co needed to make a certified toolwatch, one that doesn’t only have the tough looks, yet in addition one that is capable. With the OC+ certification, in combination with the chronometer certification, I feel that Lebois & Co did all that there is to do to guarantee this watch can get hammered and be a companion during your experiences. Put it on the NATO lash, and you can bring it into the water or go on it with you on climbing outings in the ends of the week, wear it on the calfskin tie again for the work days when there’s a ton of work area plunging to do in the office.
The transparent caseback will help you to remember the traditions of Swiss watchmaking, and the way that your mechanical development can take this every day misuse (and is ensured for that). To evidence that Lebos & Co isn’t selling you any nonsense, they will be hosting ‘An Evening with Lebois’ occasions in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Zurich, and Los Angeles. Here, you will actually want to see and attempt the Venturist yourself, examine their Avantgarde Date editions, and a portion of the vintage Lebois & Co watches they’ve had the option to protect. These will be casual nights with the Lebois & Co group, and you can enroll for those on their site .
As we clarified before, rather than utilizing Kickstarter, Lebois & Co is expecting to have investors/financial backers on leading group of the company. For a restricted period, they are offering the Venturist in a bundle bargain. For 2500 Euro, you will get the Lebois & Co Venturist Observatoire Chronométrique+ Certified Chronometer, with 25 offers in the company (addressing €1000 in worth). The conveyance of this watch will begin in Q1 2020, more information can be found .
Besides all that, I had the joy to give the Lebois & Co Venturist Observatoire Chronométrique+ Certified Chronometer an attempt in the tissue, and I figure they worked effectively in making a toolwatch without becoming a sportswatch. The absence of date is something I unquestionably praise; it keeps the great dial extremely spotless. Lebois & Co accomplished to plan a toolwatch that ticks a great deal of boxes on my list.
I am anticipating getting my hands on one of the Venturist looks for an appropriate review.
