Emile Chouriet have chosen the theme of the Alps for this men’s automatic, with a dial featuring dark jagged spikes that separate the hour markers, and four Roman numerals. SuperLuminova on the hour markers and hour and minute hands improves night-time visibility.
The stainless steel case is 40 mm in diameter, 10 mm thick, with a steel bracelet or a black cordura textile strap. Inside, the EC9316 movement is self-winding, visible through a sapphire caseback. It is problably the ETA 2824-2 movement, with 25 jewels, 38 hours power reserve, running at 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hertz. Water resistance is 5 bar (50 metres).
Emile Chouriet have chosen the image of ice and the Alps to express this watch concept, rather like Tudor and their North Flag. The Ice Cliff is more literal, with the dial design actually suggesting Alpine topography. The bezel is circular and brushed seen from above, but with a faceted arrangement when seen from the side.
The price of the Emile Chouriet Ice Cliff is 1,120 Swiss francs with Cordura strap, 1,200 with stainless steel bracelet. For further information, see the Emile Chouriet website.
