QUICK RELEASE in Partnership with Briston

Explore the Contemporary Streamliner Urban Duo from Briston

Briston is a Parisian brand that created its own particular style with strong classical watchmaking DNA with innovative raw materials and a variety of colors that creates its authentic style. Using cellulose acetate, traditionally used in the eyewear industry, with unexpected colors to adorn its collection is an innovation that reinforces Briston’s sport chic look & British spirit. Briston works in partnership with the best Italian supplier of cellulose acetate: it is a natural and hypoallergenic material, made up to 70% of cotton fibers and flower.

Streamliner Urban Chronometer

New icon of the French brand Briston, these new chronographs keep all the codes dear to the brand, but in a range of sport-chic and urban timepieces that did not exist before. The design of the case is an essential feature in the creation of this chronograph, sized 42 mm while remaining waterproof to 100 meters.

The tonneau-shaped bezel with its four screws becomes the distinctive element of this novelty. The lines of the 42mm diameter case combine the round and the square, fundamental geometric figures signing the identity of this new collection. The case body highlights the tortoise shell cellulose acetate.

The octagonal pushers and the crown decorated with a black insert are well integrated and form a coherent whole with the case. The pushers and the crown form an ensemble that fits perfectly into the volume of the case. By mixing fluidity and robustness, the continuity of the lines of this set becomes an identifying element. Featuring an embossed “waffle” pattern, it is available in a very luminous ice blue, olive green and taupe gray. 

A singularity of Briston, the Arabic numerals as well as the indexes are stamped into the dial which add depth to this novelty. As for the date, it appears at 6 o’clock & it is delicately adorned with a “barrel-camber” outline, reminiscent of the shape of the case. The whole is protected by an ultra-resistant mineral glass. Briston has chosen to assemble these new products on vulcanized rubber straps matching the color of the dial to create a coherent whole, also available as accessories.

For the purists, a brand new stainless steel bracelet, developed & specially created by Briston, offers a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology, developed to be both robust, comfortable & integrated with the case of all Streamliner Urban. Designed to fit every wrist, the links have all been designed with straight angles giving an unmatched character to this novelty. The first link is engraved Briston & special attention has been given to the vertical brushed finish of the links, as well as to the mirror-polishing of bevels. For optimal comfort, the Briston steel bracelet is equipped with a folding clasp to prevent accidental opening.

Streamliner Urban Automatic

For the automatic model, Briston combined the original aesthetics of its Streamliner model with the most modern watchmaking techniques. The Streamliner Urban Automatic collection celebrates the timeless elegance of traditional timepieces with a contemporary twist.

This new case is distinguished by its transparent case back, which allows the automatic movement to be admired, equipped with a rotor with a “Côte de Genève” decoration. As for the movement, this new collection is driven by the Japanese NH35 automatic movement, a guarantee of reliability and precision. Displaying hours, minutes & a date window, it is decorated with 24 jewels, this movement oscillates at 21,600 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of up to 41 hours.

The dials of this new Streamliner Urban Automatic display optimal legibility thanks to its graphic design. Halfway between the round and the square, another subtle reference to the 70s, we find an embossed pattern. The Arabic numerals and the indexes are carved into the dial, adding depth to this new watchmaking innovation.

This new line features dials in navy blue, ice blue, olive green and taupe gray, as well as the classic black or silver- white. The ultimate distinction, the word “Automatic” at 6 o’clock, as well as the date display in a window with a square outline, give this model sobriety and elegance in all discretion.

Both the Chronometer and the Automatic models of the Streamliner Urban shine for the savvy enthusiast. Shop either model, and Briston’s full collection at the shop here.
