Michel Herbelin keeps it classic with 1970s Riviera styling on its latest Newports

Michel Herbelin – Newport Classique – nature morte – 18264_AP05GO

Michel Herbelin has taken inspiration from 1970s seaside glamour for the 2018 Newport Classic collection that the French watchmaker says makes a strong, yet restrained style statement with its subtle contemporary take on vintage design.

The watches come in a 38mm cushion-shape that uses polished steel for their cases and bezels.

Slender white Roman numerals stand out against a deep blue lacquered ground dial with nickel hour and minute hands with luminescent coating.

The watches have a double aperture large date at 12 o’clock and a small seconds subdial at 6.

Michel Herbelin has opted for a Swiss-made Ronda quartz movement with a crown engraved with a ship’s wheel.

The Newport Classic is worn on a brown leather strap.
