Magical High End Chronometre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1

Back in 2015, Chopard launched a new brand, named after one of the most important figures in the evolution of precision timekeeping: the Swiss chronometer master Ferdinand Berthoud. Today, this high-end label has added yet another stunning piece to its already impressive collection, the Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1. This watch could be easily considered a true connoisseur’s piece, blending a marvelous tourbillon/fusée-chain movement with the original regulator-type display and an ultra-resistant carburized stainless steel case. Based on previous versions of the Chronomètre FB 1, the new Chronomètre Ferdinand Berthoud FB 1R.6-1 is an ode to its makers, with several complications inspired by scientific instruments and marine chronometers to improve precision. But this watch also makes a powerful visual statement, with its stunning tourbillon opening on the dial side, while the minimalist dial balances everything out.
