Millésime has launched a new range for pre-orders: the Millésime Merveilleux watches are due to be released mid-December 2018, in time for Christmas. We’ve not seen one “in the metal” yet, but here is what the brand has to say.
Introducing the Millésime Merveilleux collection
The Millésime Merveilleux is a three-handed dress watch that is available in steel or rose gold, with several dial colours on offer. Inspired by the teardrop lugs cases of classical dress watches of the 1950s, with a twist of Art Deco, the watches have quality Swiss ETA movements, sapphire glass on the front and back and a look that sets them aside from the common “Kickstarter dress watch” template we see so often.
