Bravur Marks Tour de France With La Grande Boucle Chronograph

Cycling-obsessed Swedish watch brand Bravur has released the 2022 edition of its Tour de France chronograph to co-incidence.

The 38mm stainless steel chronograph combines polished and brushed finishes and features a ‘wet asphalt colored’ dial with glossy black polka dots, reflecting the ‘king of the mountains’ jersey awarded to the best climber of the race.

The circular theme is carried over to the lume pot hour markers, allowing strong visibility in low light conditions, while the pill-shaped 12 o’clock marker is inspired by the milestones present during the French climbs.

The tri-compax layout carries a 15-minute counter at the three o’clock position, 12-hour counter at the six and small seconds at the nine.

A sapphire crystal caseback reveals a Sellita automatic SW511 movement with Côtes de Genève and perlé decoration, blue screws, and a custom made rotor. 

The La Grande Boucle – the French name for the Tour de France – chronograph is limited to 50 individually numbered pieces available via Bravur, with prices starting at $2,550 USD depending on the choice of strap ordered.

Elsewhere in watches, Casio and BEAMS reunite for a pair of collaborative watches.
