    Inside story

    The new Chronometre FB 2RE watch by Ferdinand Berthoud is unusual because it’s the first time the brand is using a round case instead of an octagonal one. It’s also the first without the regulator-style dial. Of course, fans of this Chopard Group brand know that the most exciting thing about Ferdinand Berthoud watches lies beneath the surface and the Calibre FB-RE.FC is an absolute stunner, showing off a fusee and chain, and a remontoire d’egalite, both traditional mechanisms that regulate the constant driving force delivered to the oscillator. The movement’s architecture was inspired by the brand’s Marine Clock No. 6, and is further enhanced by impeccable finishing. There are 10 pieces each in white gold with a white enamel dial, and rose gold with a black enamel dial.
