The Monsieur Edition Noire comes in the same 42 mm diameter case as before, but now it’s made from black ceramic, with a matte finish. The dial has a textured matte finish, with relief engraved (raised) gradations for the minute ring.
Providing a nice contrast to the otherwise stark black color scheme are stainless steel or silver accents on the flange, sapphire caseback, crown, jumping hours window, hands, and minute/second chapter rings.
Through the caseback you can see Romain Gauthier’s influence, particularly on the bridges and to some extent, the finishing. The modern manually wound movement has 72-hours of power reserve and was developed in-house, with the help of Gauthier’s, so it’s not a true in-house caliber, per se. Although, the price tag definitely reads more like an in-house. Expect this to be north of $60K.
Water-resistance is 30 meters. The Monsieur Edition Noire will be available as a numbered limited edition of 55 timepieces.
