Description

Introduced at SIHH 2010, the ref. 5449 has a case size 2mm larger than its predecessor - 44mm. Its movement borrows stylistic elements from the early F. A. Jones calibres and of course is fitted with the chiming function, which consists of over 200 individual parts working together as if they were in a mechanical orchestra. The present variation pairs a platinum case with a silver dial.
