Announced just around the time of Interbike, this little gem got lost in the shuffle of tradeshow madness. Created with Movado, the automatic chronograph mixes two premium frame materials, carbon and titanium, into a 46mm wristwatch. The piece celebrates Parlee’s craftsmanship, but benefits World Bicycle Relief with every purchase.
There are some 250 layers of carbon fiber used, with a full UD face and woven sub faces for the stopwatch dials. Even the bezel is layered carbon, which a curve to match your wrist that only becomes evident when viewed from an angle. Titanium buttons and frame support it all for what’s sure to be a very lightweight timepiece.
Only 250 were made, each is individually numbered on its exhibition case back, and it’s available in four different accent colors…
Pick from white, blue, orange or green accent colors to match your bike. The titanium is finished in a black PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating.
Other details include a self winding Swiss movement with 48 hour power reserve, anti-reflective sapphire crystal and 50-meter water resistance. Retail is $7,500.
