Julien Coudray 1518 Œuvre JC 1588 Sport Mechanical Automatic Watch

Julien Coudray 1518 Œuvre JC 1588 Sport Mechanical Automatic Watch

With this fourth collection, Manufacture Julien Coudray brings cars and watchmaking together in a most original way. The mechanical movement that beats inside this Œuvre JC 1588 Sport reproduces on its oscillating weight the registration plate of its lucky owner's car, making each timepiece truly one-of-a-kind. The harmoniously miniaturised number plate is crafted from solid 18K red gold and grand feu enamel. Fully hand-engraved and decorated, there are no limits to how it can be personalised, making it even more individual and exclusive. In an ultimate touch of refinement, the service indicator, shown in a window at 12 o'clock, reveals a drop of oil, reproduced in enamelled gold, after four years to remind the wearer that the watch must be serviced.

Mechanical automatic, hand-engraved and decorated manufacture calibre in titanium and 18K 5N red gold, oscillating weight in 18K 5N red gold, personalised with an insert in solid gold and grand feu enamel reproducing a car number plate, power reserve of more than 55 hours
