Givenchy was fairly late to bat in the watch arena but has been making up for lost time since. Designs such as the Seventeen Titanium Automatic Edition seem like something worth waiting for as well, achieving that delicate balance between eye-catching and minimalist via its interchangeable NATO straps, titanium case and a transparent sapphire caseback that shows off the movement.
Based on its iconic “Seventeen” timepiece, the new edition is powered by an automatic winding calibre called ETA 2892, which is apparently renowned for its accuracy and reliability. It features a smooth sweeping red highlighted second hand that’s characteristic of mechanical watches and should betray its quality for anyone with a keen eye and vintage-coloured luminescent on the dial should make it just as eye-catching in the dark.
This baby won’t come cheap, but if you’re in the vicinity of a Givenchy boutique it’s just become available worldwide so worth popping in for a closer look.
