Paul Picot had a wide selection of new offerings at fantastic price points. The brands quality never ceases to amaze everyone here at AZ Fine Time, and the new selections are no exception. One of the favorite new collections be released by Paul Picot is their new Firshire Ronde MEGAROTOR series.
These new MEGAROTOR’s have this name for a reason… The rotor is huge! Not only that, but this new system Paul Picot has introduced is about 20% more efficient in winding then your common ETA. While the base of the movement is a 2892, the decoration assembly and modifications are all done in house by Paul Picot. The rotor itself is made of tungsten, which adds extra weight and allows for esay fluid movement of the oversized rotor. The lineup will have 4 variations of movement…
The Classic 3 hand with date
The Calendar Day-Date with day and date pointer at 6 o’clock
There is a moonphase date pointer as well as a regulator (which I did not have an opportunity to take a picture of).
Another new into this year was a new variation of their Plongeur 48mm Helium valve. While this model will not be COSC certified (as the other variations were), the price will be quite a bit less than original models. This variation has a titanium and PVD case and will be limited to only 500 pieces for the world.
The addition of the Plongeur “S” will follow in suite without COSC certification, but an amazing price point. This models will be available in 3 hand day-date and chronograph with either black or white dial. All will have stainless steel 43mm cases, making for a nice sized diver.
As another part of Paul Picot’s dive series, the Paul Mariner adds a new style to the series and even more affordable than the rest. The 2 listed below have new ceramic bezels with yellow gold accents. Very sharp looking pieces at entry level pricing.
The Gentleman Sport 42 also had new new additions ranging from black PVD, steel and even a new brown PVD coating. The entire line up looks fantastic and will be around $2,000 for Paul Picot fans.
The Technograph series has a new limited edition for the Monza race in Italy. While Paul Picot is a Swiss brand, its roots lie in Italy, which makes perfect sense for the collaboration. This LE technograph looks incredible…
While this is not a new model, we love the Technograph DISCOTIME. Maybe it is the name, or its beautiful colors…
One of my personal favorties from Paul Picot this year was their new Technicum 1872 manual wind chronograph. I don’t know if I am just a sucker for the manual wind chrono, but they did ann incredible job with these pieces. They have a variety of different enamel dials, but the new all black peaked the most interest of our staff.
What got me the most was the movement. While it is not something you can see while you wear, there is heavy decoration and incredible detail. The pushers arms (as well as more) are blued, giving an unusual decoration to the functioning parts. All I can say is that I love it!
Hope you enjoyed! There’s a lot of great things coming from Paul Picot and we look forward to getting them in our store!
