Claude Bernard ex­tends its line-up with the af­ford­able gold­clad Clas­sic Chronograph Blue Edi­tion

Whether one is look­ing for a beater watch or an in­terim time­piece be­fore the next big pur­chase, Claude Bernard’s Clas­sic Chronograph Blue Edi­tion bears a closer look, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing its price. The watch sports a pink gold colour-coated stain­less steel case mea­sur­ing 42mm – per­fectly sized for the mod­ern wearer.

As a dressy chronograph, the Clas­sic Chronograph Blue Edi­tion has the fa­mil­iar tri-com­pax lay­out, with run­ning sec­onds at six o’clock, and the chronograph’s minute and hour to­talis­ers at 10 and two o’clock re­spec­tively. The min­i­mal­ist de­sign ap­proach sees the sim­ple in­dexes and chap­ter ring matched to sword-shaped hands, with an equally unas­sum­ing tachymeter on the flange en­cir­cling the set-up. For a touch of vis­ual in­ter­est, the cen­tre por­tion of the dial has been dec­o­rated with ver­ti­cal stripes a la Côtes de Genève, while the aper­ture at four o’clock is en­larged to show three num­bers on the date wheel. Pow­er­ing the watch is an ETA G10.211 quartz chronograph move­ment, a re­li­able work­horse cal­i­bre. MOVE­MENT Quartz CB Cal­i­bre 010 based on ETA G10.211 chronograph move­ment
