Michel Herbelin has taken inspiration from 1970s seaside glamour for the 2018 Newport Classic collection that the French watchmaker says makes a strong, yet restrained style statement with its subtle contemporary take on vintage design.
The watches come in a 38mm cushion-shape that uses polished steel for their cases and bezels.
Slender white Roman numerals stand out against a deep blue lacquered ground dial with nickel hour and minute hands with luminescent coating.
The watches have a double aperture large date at 12 o’clock and a small seconds subdial at 6.
Michel Herbelin has opted for a Swiss-made Ronda quartz movement with a crown engraved with a ship’s wheel.
The Newport Classic is worn on a brown leather strap.
