Fashion watch brand Sekonda has created its first luxury watch, a skeleton toubillon carrying a price tag of more than £1,000.
The push into the high-end watch market is a surprising move from the brand better associated with colourful, crystal-set watches that sell on the high street from less than £100.
Only a small number of the watches have been made and the timepieces will only be sold through Marcus Watches on London’s Bond Street and online at Findwatches.co.uk.
The luxury timepiece from Sekonda is fitted with a 19-jewel hand-wound movement with a tourbillon complication, the calibre HS 2233, and has a retail price of £1,295. The watch is accurate to -10 / + 30 seconds per day, has a 40-hour power reserve and has a frequency of 28,800 vph.
The watch has a three-piece stainless steel case that has been fitted with a high-density dust-proof silicon strap and the hands of the watch have been diamond cut and coated with superluminova. The watch has a mineral caseback and has no dial so that the movement can also be observed through the sapphire glass face.
