Michel Herbelin has made an oversized forged carbon and DLC coated watch in support of its ambassador Aurélien Ducroz, a French adventurer, sailor and double world champion in freeride skiing.
The Newport Regatta Carbon Chronograph is made in a limited series of 300 numbered pieces worldwide.
Carbon construction makes the 46.5mm watch light, strong and shock-resistant, making it ideal for extreme sports.
It is particularly suited to Mr Ducroz’s sailing adventures, which ties in well with the Newport collection’s own maritime heritage and design.
As well as a chronograph, the watch has a 15-minute regatta countdown function, day and date displays.
It is powered by a Sellita 13 ¼ SW501 BV a movement made especially for Michel Herbelin.
Water-resistant to 300 meters, this limited edition is worn on a blue Newport rubber strap.
It is on sale now for £2,710.
