Fabergé - Visionnaire Chronograph

| 2 Comments
The new Visionnaire Chronograph from Fabergé displays prevailing time on the periphery of the watch dial while the chronograph function – featuring three hands on a single, shared spindle – takes centre stage. This concentric arrangement, in which prevailing time wholly surrounds a chronograph mounted on a single spindle, is a world first, made possible by the innovative calibre which creates space at the centre of the movement so that it can house complication modules.


Nearly a decade of work and five horologically significant patents are deployed in the calibre 6361, two of which have been specifically designed for the new chronograph movement developed by Agenhor, the Geneva-based movement specialist lead by legendary master watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht.

Beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour with 60 hours of power reserve, the calibre 6361 offers instant-start indications thanks to a system of snail cams, fixed to the chronograph wheels along the central camshaft. Upon completion of a full minute or a full hour, a snail cam trips a pawl that instantly clicks the chronograph indication forwards by a single step.

Further precision is provided by the patented AgenClutch, a completely novel, lateral-friction clutch that robustly combines the smooth engagement of the modern vertical clutch with the flatness of the traditional system.

The rotor of the Visionnaire Chronograph is visible under the sapphire crystal ring that forms the outermost part of the dial. As the rotor spins and winds the watch, the radial lines on its surface subtly catch the light, adding a constant dynamism and motion in keeping with a sports complication.


To mark the 100th anniversary of the last Imperial Easter egg commissioned, Fabergé has a laser-cut etching of the 1917 Constellation Egg on the sapphire case back, visible only under certain light conditions.


The oblong chronograph pushers of the imposing 43 mm case are positioned at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock, positioned for comfortable use whether on the wrist or in the hand.

Water resistant to 50 metres / 165 feet, the Visionnaire Chronograph will launch in two versions: the more classic rose-gold case with grey opaline dial or the bolder black DLC treated ceramic case with black dial.

Both version feature case accents in titanium, a material characterised by lightness and strength, key considerations for a contemporary sports watch.



The new Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph will be showcased at Baselworld 2017. The price will be announced at the show. faberge.com
