FB 1.4-1 Titanium

The concept of the FERDINAND BERTHOUD FB 1.4 Chronometer is inspired by an 18th century armillary sphere whose movement, created by Ferdinand Berthoud, indicated the time on a glass dial. The sapphire half-bridges reveal the beauty of the hand-wound Calibre FB-T.FC-2, rhodium-plated and dotted with blue accents, its pillar-type architecture and its reversed and suspended fusee-and-chain transmission mechanism. Thanks to its titanium case, this timepiece with its contemporary design weighs only 80 g, which is extremely light for such a complex timepiece.

The FERDINAND BERTHOUD FB 1.4 Chronometer is produced in two 20-piece series, a symbolic figure linked to the history of Ferdinand Berthoud, who received an order in 1770 for 20 marine chronometers that would make a vital contribution to the success of major exploration campaigns.
