Bólido

Back Download

The Bólido’s basic form is machined by automatic lathing in a single operation. A second vertical angle tilts and lifts the case at 12-hours, giving space for an ample and characteristic winding crown. The archetypical form is underscored by the reduced dial-scale. The monocoque construction eliminates the need for a case-back; it withstands to a pressure of 10 bar (100 metres water depth) and houses a self-winding Swiss movement with a power reserve of 44 hours. The Bólido features a natural caoutchouc strap with folding clasp.

Statement by the Jury

With its automatic construction and by means of the materials used, the Bólido conveys impressive sustainability.
