Michel Herbelin keeps it classic with 1970s styling on its latest Newports

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.
