Favre-Leuba Raider Harpoon, now in 42mm

Favre-Leuba is probably the most seasoned name in the watch business. The brand was relaunched a couple of years prior with rough retro-themed experience watches. Among these, the Raider Harpoon stands apart with its idiosyncratic retro-modern plan. At 46mm in distance across, this monster of a jump watch doesn’t fly under the radar and is obviously not implied for each wrist… however in the event that your wrist is on the more modest side or on the off chance that you are slanted toward all the more cautiously estimated watches, the Favre-Leuba Raider Harpoon is presently accessible in a more modest 42mm version.

What we’re taking a gander at here is fundamentally a cut back adaptation of the first 46mm plan, however for the rest, no sensational changes. We actually have the 1960s-propelled barrel-molded, rakish case with its round opening, a similar strong shading plans and, for the most part, a similar unique and really plunge situated display.

Starting with the case, it has been diminished from an astounding 46mm to 42mm, without changing the plan and extents of the model. It is fitted with a two-tone unidirectional pivoting bezel, which monitors jump times. The double crown design is still there, one of these is a manual Helium Relief Valve (HRV). This trademark proficient jump watch include was made for immersion plunging.

Professional jumpers live and work under significant degrees of pressing factor for quite a long time or weeks. At incredible profundities, they inhale a blend that has been immersed with helium to forestall any danger of inactive gas narcosis. During these drawn out stays in a compressed climate, the pressing factor inside the watch bit by bit becomes the pressing factor of the jumping profundity. Depressurization represents an issue when the jumper gets back to surface pressing factor. Without a helium alleviation valve, which empowers the strain to get away, this may make the precious stone jump out. To guarantee water-obstruction, the caseback and the crown are in a bad way. A pleasant detail, the caseback is adjusted guaranteeing that all markings are in the correct position, which is infrequently the situation on screw-down casebacks.

With the dispatch of the Harpoon Raider 42mm, the fundamental test for Favre-Leuba was to accommodate its interesting time show instrument into a more modest case. To do as such, the in-house module has been adjusted and the water-obstruction of the watch diminished from 500m to 300m.

Specific to this watch, the Raider Harpoon centers around the most urgent time sign when plunging; the moment hands. There is no hour hand as the sign is consigned to the outskirts on a co-turning ring. The ring continuously advances and hours are shown constantly hand. Interesting and unordinary toward the beginning, it is helpful once you become acclimated to it (you can watch the accompanying video that will make things more clear ). A little focal pointer permits you to see that your watch is running, which is a fundamental component of a jump watch. The utilization of radiant material makes it simple to peruse the time even in faint light.

To power this extraordinary system, Favre-Leuba utilizes the attempted and-tried programmed Sellita SW 200-1 as a base. It brags 38 hours power hold and beats at 4Hz. A dependable base to control the in-house module.

The Favre-Leuba Raider Harpoon 42mm is accessible in steel or weapon metal PVD-covered steel, with various dial/bezel setups. It tends to be requested with a decision of cowhide or elastic tie, or on a steel wristband with wellbeing collapsing catch and jumping augmentation framework. Value begins at CHF 3,450.
