Pre-sale campaign: launching June 25th 2022 (12.00 CEST)
Delivery: during September 2022

Following the successful release and delivery of my previous models, I’m now excited to bring you the version 2 of my fourth timepiece: The DRZ 04 “Mondial”. The arrival of jet planes revolutionized the world of air travel, a Boeing 707 was able to travel from Paris to New York in eight hours with 180 passengers – twice as many as a propeller-driven Super Constellation, which took over 14 hours for the same journey. The DRZ 04 “Mondial” draws inspiration from this exciting time.

Dial:

The dial’s bowl shape was first introduced with the DRZ 02 back in 2018. This type of dial helps to create a seamless continuity between dial and case, it also creates a deep sense of depth and 3D effect on the whole watch. This kind of dial manufacture requires a CNC modelling process, unlike that used to produce a more conventional and simpler flat disc. The dials come in either matt or sunburst fumé with applied indices. The 04 comes in a Meteorite limited edition option as well.

Bracelet:

The DRZ 04 “Mondial” features a 316L stainless steel integrated bracelet (all links are articulated). This bracelet is extremely comfortable. Of course, this watch is my personal homage to one of the greatest watch designers of all times: Gérald Genta, who designed iconic timepieces such as Patek Philippe’s Nautilus, or Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak.

Your DRZ 04 Mondial will come with an optional folding clasp with 3 microadjustments and the proper endlinks so you can swap the butterfly easily in case you prefer to use your 04 that way. The extra clasp will come with the scratch resistant coating as well (and of course engraved logo) The DRZ 04 V2 now have drilled lugs in order to facilitate the installation of the custom-made rubber strap (white or black)

NOTE: These images don’t show the actual V2 case with drilled lugs, the new dials were mounted on V1 cases.

Swiss Made:

Throughout the world the reputation of Swiss made watches is unrivalled. Know-how, impeccable quality, aesthetic prowess, technical innovation: the indication “Swiss made” reflects all this, and much more. Assembled in Switzerland, the DRZ 04 “Mondial” sports the Swiss automatic movement Sellita SW-200-1 and comes in Elaboré version with an Incabloc protection system, a high quality and accurate mechanism for three hands with 38 hours of power reserve and a 28’800 A/h (4 Hz) frequency. Aside from the assembly and quality control undertaken in our Swiss atelier, each watch is inspected personally by me before being dispatched, allowing a final check to be carried out on the movement’s precision and options.
