deLaCour Watches

This is an interesting brand with some very interesting timepieces. The deLacour brand, based in Switzerland, was founded by Mr. Pierre Koukjian. Mr. Koukjian is a noted painter and sculptor. The brand was officially launched in 2003. The brand is noted for their BiChronograph watch which carries 2 automatic chronograph movement.

As a participant in the Watch 09 function, deLaCour has presented the BiChrono S3 Asphalt Graphite watch. This watch is a homage to the Monaco Grand Prix. As it is part of the BiChrono series, it has dual time (2 chrono movement) and date indication. The rehaut is rendered with the F1 chequred flag motif. The interesting aspect of this watch is the dial is rendered in asphalt. It is textured like the F1 track. The case is titanium and both the front and display back crystal are sapphire crystal.
