DESCRIPTION

  • NEWPORT SLIM

    Streamlined chic

    Iconic from the moment it was launched in 1988, the Newport catapulted the Michel Herbelin French Watchmaking Studio to international attention. Enhanced, slimmed down and remodelled for the unveiling of a new collection, it has been transformed, yet retains its nautical soul. Elegantly urban, the Newport Slim proudly displays a streamlined silhouette, powered by a manually wound mechanical movement.

    THE LATEST INSTALMENT IN THE NEWPORT SERIES

    Emblematic of the French brand due to its sleek design, the Newport has been Michel Herbelin’s best-seller for over 30 years. Building on this success in order to plan for the future, Mathieu Herbelin – grandson of the founder and Associate Creative Director of the watchmaking brand returned to the original model with the aim of updating it. Persuaded by the trend for classicism, he refined the design in every way, while skilfully preserving its identity.

    Just 7.30 mm thick - a first for the Newport - the stainless steel 42 mm diameter case retains the traditional central horns and crown engraved with a ship’s wheel. Divided into three intricately carved facets, its polished finish sculpts the light, playing on the overall styling.

    Free from screws, the large «Newport» engraved bezel reveals a dial devoid of artifice, protected by a sapphire crystal. Standing out against the black case back, reflecting bluish glints at the slightest movement, the faceted steel index hour markers appear smartly tapered, just like the dagger-shaped hands. These are largely functional, bringing the Newport Slim to life, showing the time in hours and minutes.

    Also crafted in a minimalist style, the black crocodile- embossed leather strap has been covered with a layer of rubber, for a smooth and matte effect. Maintained   by a central horn characteristic of all Newport models, it complements the dial colour-wise, completing the stylish feel of this classic and beautifully finished timepiece.

    AN ULTRA-RELIABLE SWISS MOVEMENT

    The Newport Slim is fitted with a Swiss-made manually wound mechanical movement (Sellita). Incorporating 19 jewels and oscillating at 28,800 beats per hour, it offers a 42-hour power reserve. Luxury mechanical watch enthusiasts will be thrilled to discover that the transparent case back allows its inner workings to be admired.

    FRENCH HERITAGE

    Proud to be a French manufacturer, the Newport Slim is designed, assembled, adjusted and inspected at the Michel Herbelin workshops established in the Jura mountains of France’s Franche-Comté region since 1947. Respectful of ancestral watchmaking tradition, this timepiece falls into the family of authentic watches that last and can be passed down from one generation to the next.

    ABOUT MICHEL HERBELIN

    In the last century, Michel Herbelin founded his eponymous brand as an independent family-owned traditional French watchmaking company in Charquemont, in the region of Haut-Doubs near the Swiss border. Set in the heart of the manufacturing region of Fine Watchmaking – close to its main suppliers to ensure absolute control over production – the company has its own design studio within the workshops where watches are assembled.

    Beautifully made, in a price range from € 300 to € 3,000, Michel Herbelin watches are exclusively equipped with Swiss movements. In 2020, annual production reached 85,000 watches, with distribution through 3,000 points of sale across 50 countries. Heir to a watchmaking tradition stretching back almost 75 years, this Jura brand is spurred on by the passion of a family that has seen three generations take up the craft since 1947.

    Managing the company started by his father since 2010, Pierre-Michel Herbelin entrusted it to four young men in 2020, including the founder’s grandsons Maxime and Mathieu Herbelin and two close members of the « Herbelin family »: Cédric Gomez-Montiel and Benjamin Theurillat.
