FOB PARIS x ERIC GIROUD
Unanimously welcomed by the press during a presentation in Paris in February 2020, the pieces of the collaboration finally available
FOB PARIS partners with Eric Giroud; one of the greatest contemporary watch designer, having designed for the biggest watch companies.
It is a meeting between Paris and Geneva, watchmaking which knows its ranges but ventures off the beaten track. Very quickly, the common points emerge. Love of the product, and a freedom of creation that flirts with the unconventional. What becomes a friendly relationship between Eric Giroud and FOB PARIS, gives birth to their collaboration.
The FOB PARIS x Eric Giroud collaboration draws its inspiration from the “Clous de Paris” motif.
This dial decoration used since the 16th century, and very present in fine watchmaking, is reworked by cutting the pyramids at the base, giving a more brutalist aspect for a perfectly minimalist dial.
The light effects on the "Clous de Paris" are accentuated by the reflections of the curved sapphire glass which completes the design and gives roundness to this new R413. The watch is mounted on a leather strap in which the motifs on the dial are embossed.
The R413 "Clous de Paris" is available in two versions, with a black or gold dial, each with tone-on-tone hands
It will be available from July 1, 2020, in the FOB PARIS store - 16 rue des Gravilliers 75003 PARIS, on the brand's website, and at Printemps Haussmann, at a price of € 1,040.
