BR 03 RAFALE


By adopting the distinctive design features of this iconic fighter aircraft, the BR 03-94 Rafale asserts a strong identity from the very first glance. The stealthy matte black ceramic case is a reference to the anti-reflective tints of instrument panels in aeroplane cockpits. Rafale’s characteristic colour adorns the dial: a monochrome camouflage grey. The typography of the numerals subtly recalls that of the registration numbers that feature on the plane’s fuselage. The hands used for the chronograph functions are distinguished by orange tips (in aviation, this is the colour of essential features and test flights), which offer excellent legibility.

Watch manufacturing: Piaget Craftsmanship


I like the engineering of watches and chronographs! So much intelligence and precision must go in a small package. And on top of that, it should be fashion desirable!
