The Essence Leggera is an ultra-light and uncompromisingly forward-thinking high-precision Swiss Made watch. With its subtle structure and a smooth, slightly silky feel, the 50g (1.75oz) case made of Carbon Fiber Composite was entirely developed in-house. Bezel and crown are made of scratch-proof Zirconium Oxide ceramic. Unique features, such as the patented Micro-Adjustment and Case Suspension Systems, will make the Essence Leggera wear exceptionally comfortable on your wrist.
Under the hood beats a Swiss Made Sellita SW-200-1 automatic movement ensuring both accuracy and reliability. It comes in its highest quality grade ”Chronometer”, using top of the line components only found in Chronometer-grade movements. Each of the movements undergoes the COSC-certification process, a meticulous 15-day rate test to ensure extraordinary levels of mechanical accuracy and precision. Only the movements who pass the stringent assessment will be certified and engraved with a unique serial number. The movements’ power reserve extends to approximately 41 hours.
The updated Leggera collection comes with a series of multi-finished, in-house manufactured dials. Choose the extremely thin forged carbon fiber dial for a unique piece, as each dial has an individual pattern, created by machining the forged carbon fiber. The Arctic White and Mamba Green dials come with the Essence’s signature horizontal lines which are individually CNC-machined into the dial base. The Electric Blue dial has a mesmerizing sunray finish while the Cool Grey comes in glossy cement look. Hands and hand-applied indexes are mirror polished on the bevels to increase legibility during the day, while deep-filled grade A BGW9 SuperLumiNova emits a strong, blue lume in low light conditions.
