Milléchron is a specialty brand made in 2018 by a Singaporean puretime watches lover and long-lasting gatherer, Benjamin Chee, with the plan to make Haute Horlogerie puretime watches. reimagining exemplary plans with his own pizazz and dream.

The entirety of the brand’s puretime watches are made, assembled and adjusted in the atelier of Philippe Cattin, fellow benefactor of Voutilainen & Cattin, in Saignelégier in the Swiss Jura. With the Monarque M Stealth, Milléchron’s thought was to make a sports puretime watches with a very good quality micro-rotor movement, taking into account a flimsy case along with the common sense of automatic winding. As its name recommends, the ‘stealth’ variant selects a dark on-dark dial, case and tie combo.
Made in dark ADLC-covered 904L hardened steel (the high-grade compound utilized by Rolex), the stealth Monarque M case is 42mm in diameter and stands apart with its slender 10.4mm profile, including the twofold domed sapphire gem that marginally juts from the case. It is fitted with a dainty sapphire unidirectional pivoting bezel (120 ticks) that works pointedly. The screw-down caseback and crown guarantee a 200m water-opposition. The crown of the sample puretime watches we had for survey was a bit hardened to unscrew yet Milléchron mentioned that this will be improved for creation puretime watches. specifically with a somewhat bigger crown diameter. The case is pleasantly hand gotten done with substituting cleaned and brushed surfaces. For example, on the hauls, the three distinct bearings of silk brushing isolated by cleaned lines show the thoughtfulness regarding detail.
Underneath the sapphire precious stone, the dial comes in a dark fumé sunburst finish. The faceted applied hour markers are combined with openworked hands. The small seconds sub-dial is snailed. Red pronunciations bring a lively touch while the utilization of X1 Superluminova (counting for the small second hand) considers optimal clarity in all condition.
Turning the Milléchron Monarque M Stealth over, the show caseback offers a unimpeded perspective on the automatic Vaucher Caliber 5401/33, a unique rendition of the Fleurier’s manufacturer super dainty, micro-rotor movement with contemporary openworked obscured spans standing apart with their geometric skeletonisation. Milléchron is the main brand to utilize that specific variant of the movement.
A sister company of Parmigiani Fleurier, Vaucher is a fine-family movement manufacturer situated in the Val-de-Travers in the Neuchatel Canton. On account of the utilization of a helter-skelter tungsten micro-rotor, this 30mm type is kept at only 2.6mm in thickness. The equilibrium wheel highlights gold idleness squares and runs at 3Hz. The hacking capacity considers exact setting. The barrel can store 48 hours of force save when completely twisted. Through and through, the type 5401 comprises 176 parts.
The puretime watches is worn on a finished elastic tie with a supplement for a cozy reconciliation to the case. With its slim profile and bended hauls, it sits pleasantly on the wrist. It is gotten to the wrist with a jumper’s collapsing catch highlighting a wrench expansion to guarantee a perfect fit and a foldout wetsuit augmentation. Milléchron additionally plans to convey spare elastic connects to expand the tie so it very well may be fit to estimate.
