That new black magic
June 07, 2018
The new Aquarider chronograph from Switzerland’s Claude Bernard dazzles in all-black, its tough stainless steel 316L case sporting a black PVD coating.
The “soft touch” leather strap is also black, but accented with luminescent touches - as are the indices and hands on a jet-black dial which features three chronograph sub-dials, plus an offset date display at 4 o’clock, all housed under an anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
With a Claude Bernard Calibre 102 chronograph movement at its heart, the Aquarider is nice and bold on the wrist (45mm diameter) and the black livery makes it a stunning fashion accessory for any occasion, formal or informal.
The Aquarider is perfect, too, for sailing, swimming or diving, boasting 200m water-resistance.
And with a recommended retail price of just CHF399.00, the Aquarider is a spectacular example of why Claude Bernard timepieces are amazing value for money.
Hand-assembled, precision engineered and rigorously tested, the Claude Bernard Aquarider chronograph is a superb watch that delivers Swiss watchmaking excellence that is affordable for all.
Founded in 1973, Claude Bernard offers strikingly designed watches with top quality components and materials but at a fraction of the cost of its rivals.
