Cecil Purnell Classique 47

This is jolly nice.

The Cecil Purnell Classique 47 – a new take on last year’s Classique 43.

The watch is being introduced in black PVD-treated steel, microbillage finish.

The steel used is MX 455, which apparently is rather good.

The 47 will be available in Rose Gold (5N18) or White Gold (150 Palladium).

Personal preference .. one with a matching metal strap please :-)

Cecil Purnell Hambergé Tourbillon

I wonder what you make of this?

The Hambergé Tourbillon from Cecil Purnell comes in a black PVD titanium case, equipped with the caliber CP3008 movement.

The case, designed from 5 components, features a 34mm aperture on the dial.

The bezel is in MX455 steel and has 12 decorative polished steel nut sockets.

The dial is super-luminova and has an opening at six o’clock providing visibility of the tourbillon cage.

The model also features anti‐reflective sapphire crystal, custom CP rubber strap and deployment buckle. Water resistance is to 8ATM.

So what do you think?

I’m sort of torn. I like a more modern take on the tourbillon but I’m really not sure about the ‘nuts’, nor the red writing on the bezel which, at least to my fevered mind, comes across as a bit G-Shockish.  A look I suspect C.Purnell was not aiming for!

Thumbs up?  Or thumbs down?

Cecil Purnell La Croix Tourbillon

Woah.  I’m getting vertigo looking down into this seriously deep Cecil Purnell Tourbillon!

The case is in 18kt rose or white gold and measures a less than shy 53mm. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal, a sapphire display back and is water resistant to 50 meters.

Movement is the Swiss made hand-wind CP caliber 3888 with 19 jewels, 21,600 vph and a power reserve of 60 hours.
