Chapter 1.2 Blue

SFr. 360
Product availability: in stock.
The BA111OD Chapter 1 collection incorporates the essential codes of Swiss haute horlogerie: automatic movement with double oscillator and 47 jewels, domed sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective coating, Côtes de Genève finish and applied indexes, and meticulous attention to detail. The 43 mm case in 316L steel offers a subtle alternation of brushed and polished finishes. The movement has been deliberately rotated by one hour clockwise to give the watch an immediately recognizable asymmetry. The four levels on a transparent background reinforce the exceptional 3D rendering. The crown bears the coat of arms of the Baillod family, whose famous knight heroically defended the Thielle bridge in the 15th century, the fresco proudly adorning the main hall of the Château de Neuchâtel, at the foot of which the brand is based.

      dynamic and sporty Chapter 1.2 from Ba111od

      At the time of writing this review, is the last addition to my ba111od collection.

      I have received many compliments because of this watch.

      Youthful and sporty look chapter 1.2: denim, corduroy or slacks, a sterling signet and a polo/jumper with or without a jacket. For evening black suit white shirt no tie, accessories like a white pocket square with a bit of burgundy, cufflinks with some orange or brown accents

      Here are my favourites:
      - the case, that can be most likely appreciated in reality, is very nice for a modern watch alternating the brushed finishes with the polished surfaces, giving it character and contrast.
      - the domed crystal is great and the back sapphire window opened the big rotor with the logo and the interesting movement.
      - at 7.5 inches wrist size, I was nervous that the watch was too big for me. Due to its elevated lugs, especially on metal bands, the miracle happened – the watch rests where I want it and how I wanted it without overshadowing the normal proportion a watch should comfortably have.
      - the name, logo etc. are less intrusive, leaving air and maybe a chance for a good old conversation - to ask a question or two if considered appropriate.
      - the wallet has its logo and seems well made; even the cardboard boxes hold their shape and do a good protective job. The weakest link in this chain is the cardboard sleeve which, after several uses, gets frail and starts tearing apart.
      - the movement is decent – after regulating it, I consistently get 11 – 17 seconds fast a day which is ok when one knows the watch and uses it to tell the time. I use it at work to help me count my patient’s respiratory rate or when manually checking the heart pulse.

      Is this watch for everybody? My first instinct would be to say 'no', but then again, when the problem of purchasing a new watch comes, I start thinking that the lines of the people who really hate it are quite thin: in the ba111od offer there is something for a lot of preferences and styles; even with a low budget, a celebration, an achievement that deserves to be memorable will surely do and they make amazing gifts that can be planned ahead. If thinking about it, it is something supposed to last (the warranty is 2 years) and is of permanent use - it can carry a handshake and warm feelings over time and space.
      Who would still choose socks for Christmas presents?

      Belle mécanique à prix raisonnable

      6 mois que je suis propriétaire de la chapitre 1.2 bleu.
      Elle fait toujours son petit effet.
      Pour moi c'est son double oscillateur qui la rend si atypique.
      Bref une très belle montre pour son prix !


      Séduit par son concept novateur. Lors de la réception de ma montre c'est une séduction total envers BA111OD. Un style qui se remarque est plaît!
