The Britain Icon Check for Men Limited Edition
Part of the brand-new The Britain Icon Check collection designed by Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer and CEO Christopher Bailey, this timepiece issued in a 20-piece limited edition is a compendium of the famous British brand’s design codes. Created in the 1920s, the “Check” motif featured on the lining of its famous trench coats finds new scope for expression in the form of a grid pattern serving as a watch dial. The latter, like the watch movement, was entirely crafted in Switzerland, sealing the encounter between the best of British design and Swiss watchmaking expertise. Crafted in anthracite DLC-treated titanium, the dial weaves an openworked motif providing tantalising glimpses of the mechanical calibre and its Côtes de Genève decoration.
