Pékinier “Royal Saphir Perlage”. Next-generation calendar sublimated into an icon | Luxury watch magazine Kronos Japan edition[webChronos]

Born in 2011 under the French Manufacture, the Carible Royale was a movement worthy of being called the next generation. Now, that famous machine becomes an icon.

Pekinier “Royal Saphir Perlage”

French watch brand Pékinier has released a limited edition Japan Royale Saphir Perlage.

“Royale” is a collection equipped with the in-house developed movement “Kalibre Royale (EPM01)” born in 2011. There are two virtues of this movement. One is that while the Swiss brand was working hard to develop its own movement, it entered the competition with the French Manufacture. Second, it was equipped with a unique design with international patents, such as the efficient drive system “Center Shaft Drive” and the “Flat 3-disc jumping day-date” with adjacent date and day discs, which set it apart from other companies’ core calibers. It should also be noted that there are no prohibition times for calendar operation.

The Royale Saphir Down White, also equipped with the Calibre Royale, also appeared. The dial is made of sapphire crystal with a thickness of 0.1 mm. Automatic winding (Cal.EPM01). 39 stones. 21,600 vibrations per hour. Power reserve about 88 hours. SS case (diameter 42 mm, thickness 12.3 mm). Water resistant to 50m. 2.09 million yen (tax included). The planned annual production is 20 tires.

With the Royal Saphir Perlage, Calibre Royale has entered the stage where it is sublimated not only as an “excellent movement” but also as an icon. By omitting the dial, this famous machine was visualized and became the design code for this work. The exposed baseplate was decorated with Perlage decoration, and each disc was decorated with a pale pink. The brand logo and the second scale on the dial are printed on the back of the sapphire crystal windshield so as not to interfere with the design of the famous machine. You should see the excellent use of colors and the shape of the parts, but the design strongly asserts that the Calibre Royale movement is the protagonist.

Since the print on the windshield is white, it is worrisome that visibility is impaired. However, this is an icon for watch lovers who indulge in the pleasure of mechanical movements rather than practicality.

Pékinier “Royal Saphir Perlage” and other fairs

The French Manufacture does not stop. Pekinier introduced the manual “Kalibre Royale Manual (EPM02)” in ’21 and the more basic automatic “Kalibre Initials (EPM03)” in ’21. Within a brand strategy that focuses on a wide range of audiences, the collection continues to expand.

A fair where Pékinier’s latest models gather will be held at the Matsuzakaya Nagoya store. In addition to the Royale Saphir Perlage introduced this time, it is a large-scale fair with models that have not been released Japan.

Location: Matsuzakaya Nagoya North Building 5F GENTA the Watch
〒460-8430 Aichi-ken, Nagoya-shi, Naka-ku, Sakae 3-16-1

Fairs accompanying the expansion of sales channels

I mentioned the expansion of the collection, but I would also like to mention the expansion of sales channels. Pékinier will start an official shop in Hiroshima Prefecture in October ’23. This is the first time it has been deployed in the San’in and Sanyo regions. It will be handled by Long Slow Distance Hiroshima.

In conjunction with the opening, the store will hold the “Pequinier Opening Fair” for a limited time. In addition to new models, Japan also accepts orders for unreleased models and offers gift services for purchasers, so if you are nearby, why not visit us?

Here is some information about the opening fair:
