Fleurier Watch – Transcending its heritage with the Arcadia MK2
The Fleurier Watch Co. has moved up another gear by taking its distinctive watches into the virile world of motor-racing.
With its thrilling, streamlined appearance, the new, easy-to-read Arcadia MK2 is sure to appeal to anyone with a taste for adventure.
The Arcadia MK2 successfully overcomes one of the biggest challenges facing the watchmakers of today: how to design a 21st century timepiece that remains true to their roots and heritage. Fleurier craftsmen have managed to transcend over a century of watchmaking tradition by giving the brand’s flagship ACO model a more individual character.
The Arcadia MK2 catches the eye with its original design and striking contrasts (red/yellow on black, brushed/polished steel). The tonneau case remains, but in a slightly rounded version, with visible screws and hidden push-pieces. The simplified dial has sleeker hands, with the counters repositioned to facilitate quick-and-easy time-reading.
The Fleurier Watch C° is heir to over a hundred years of Swiss watchmaking excellence, reflected in the automatic movement at the heart of the Arcadia MK2 – identical to the movement in the AC01, but with a re-designed rotor that can be admired through the transparent caseback.
The watch comes in different versions, each with a porosus crocodile bracelet featuring top-stitching in the same colour as used on the dial – a racy, retro detail evoking the seats and gloves of the world’s greatest racing-drivers!
