For the first time, the house of Ferdinand Berthoud is taking part in the “Only Watch” charity auction. A unique piece was created for the occasion: the Chronomètre FB 1 “Night Star”.
We are happy to support one of the main causes of scientific research that still affects so many children and adults ”, explains Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, President of Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud. "This lasting commitment has allowed us to develop daring one-offs, resulting from extensive aesthetic and technical research, which reflect the powerful choices that our collectors did not necessarily expect. The Chronomètre FB 1" Night Star "reflects the same perspective."
A play of colors is at the heart of the design of this one-of-a-kind model. The FB 1 “Night Star” features hands and numbers with white luminescent material that contrast with the dark tones of the case and dial, evoking the glow of the stars in the night sky.
Historically, the stars were the reference points of navigators for their position on the oceans, thus recalling the lineage of the FB 1 collection. Symbolically, the white Super-LumiNova evokes the ray of hope that inspires the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
