The youthful watchmaking brand, Pierre De Roche, will unveil its new creations at the upcoming Baselworld 2016 watch show (from March 17 until March 24). One if its novelties that we will see this March is the exceptional chronograph watch named Pierre De Roche TNT Chrono 43.
This sporty newcomer features bold and aggressive case design, combined with a busy dial which is quite different when compared with the previous models in the Pierre De Roche range.
The new chronograph from Pierre De Roche boasts some of the brand’s recognizable elements, such as the 60-minute counter, a symbol of Pierre DeRoche, and the visible mechanism made by Dubois Dépraz. The see-through sapphire dial shows lots of the movement details from any angle. The movement is also visible through a sapphire crystal case back.
The beating heart of the new TNT Chrono 43 is the automatic chronograph movement with decorated and engraved oscillating weight. This exclusive Dubois Dépraz caliber is built on 49 jewels and provides the usual functions of hours, minutes, seconds, as well as a chronograph and date functions. For the first time ever in the TNT series, all the functions are displayed on a dial.
The watch is housed in a round, sporty case sculpted from stainless steel and titanium. Its bezel, lugs, crown protection and screw-lock crown are crafted from steel, while the middle of the case is made of black PVD-treated titanium. The case measures 43mm in diameter and it is water resistant to 100 meters (approximately 330 feet).
Pierre De Roche TNT Chrono 43 is teamed up with a comfortable black rubber strap, fitted with a safety folding clasp. The latest TNT model is the brand’s eighth chronograph. It is produced in the limited series of only 201 pieces.
Pierre De Roche is a relatively young watchmaker established in 2004 by Carole and Pierre Dubois. Pierre is one of the three Dubois brothers and it comes from the famous Dubois-Dépraz family that had been developing and producing horological complications for the great names in Swiss watchmaking industry for four generations so far.
