The Belgian watchmaking brand Lebeau Courally has once again partnered with the prestigious Zoute Grand Prix, a major event for enthusiasts of classic cars, vintage racing cars and luxury automobiles. The seventh anniversary edition of the Zoute Grand Prix takes place from October 6 to 9, 2016 in Knokke-Zoute, Belgium. It is the third time that the iconic watchmaker is sponsoring the Zoute Grand Prix.
To honor this partnership, Lebeau-Courally is unveiling two special limited edition timepieces – one for ladies and the other one for gentlemen.
The feminine Dauphin Zoute model is a sophisticated timepiece that demonstrates the simplicity of timeless design. It is available in two variants – one jeweled and one non-jeweled – which is the first time that Lebeau-Courally offers jewelry option for one Zoute Grand Prix model.
The Dauphin Zoute is housed in a round, stainless steel case measuring 38mm in diameter. Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a stunning, minimalist white dial with the flange that features a red lining spanning a 20-minute section as a reminder of the short times recorded in the classic car race.
The Zoute Grand Prix emblem is located at the 6 o’clock position. The ladies’ Zoute Grand Prix watch is secured to the wrist with the red crocodile strap with the white topstitching, thus further emphasizing the wristwatch’s sporty feel. The Dauphin Zoute is produced in the limited quantity of only 24 specimens.
For men, the Belgian watchmaker presents Le Baron Zoute Grand Prix chronograph model which is housed in a black DLC-treated steel case measuring 43mm in diameter. The men’s model features the same sporty pedigree like its ladies’ counterpart, with the same red accents reappearing in the graduations and a chronograph pusher at the 2 o’clock position.
The distinctive chronograph perfectly balances the Grand Prix coat of arms at the 9 o’clock position with hour and minute chronograph sub-dials. The Le Baron Zoute watch is mounted on a black alligator leather strap, hand-finished with red topstitching. It is also issued in the limited series of 24 pieces.
Both Zoute Grand Prix Limited Editions are powered by Swiss made automatic calibers. They operate at the rapid frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour (4 Hz) each. The power reserve is assured up to 42 hours. The impeccable movement is visible via the sapphire case back.
Lebeau-Courally was founded in 1865 in the Belgian city of Liège. For a century and a half, the iconic manufacturer has grown into one of the world’s most respected houses for exceptional arts and crafts.
