Villemont Amundsen Collection Arctic Explorer
This is the model that accompanied Lewis Gordon Pugh throughout his voyage to the North Pole.

Limited to only 50 pieces, this watch is equipped with the “Solar Navigator” navigation system which allows easy orientation based on the position of the sun and shade. All 50 watches travelled with the explorers to the North Pole and functioned perfectly after withstanding the extreme temperatures.

Twenty-first century adventurers have long awaited a sporty and elegant watch that enables them to tackle the challenges of modern life. This limited edition watch is designed to meet the expectations of the most demanding connoisseurs, both in terms of its functions and its modern appearance.

The choice of British Racing Green as the dominant colour for this watch harks back to the illustrious British racing cars around at the turn of the last century, and gives the piece a chic, sporty appeal. The use of the colour green also highlights Lewis Pugh's environmental campaign and his aim to raise general awareness of the issue of global warming.

The movement itself remains faithful to the Villemont tradition by meeting the highest standards in terms of testing and water-resistance. In terms of its appearance, the bridge of the rotor and the oscillating weight are fully decorated with the "Clou de Villemont", the brand's distinctive V-shaped pattern, and these are visible via a transparent sapphire case-back.

The bezel featuring the Solar Navigation System - an essential tool for explorations in extreme conditions and a manual alternative to the universal GPS system - enables the wearer to navigate in all conditions without having to rely on batteries or the position of satellites. It works simply by aligning the number on the bezel corresponding to the hour indicated on the dial with the hour hand. For example, if it is 15:00 (3pm), position the bezel so that the number 15 on the bezel is opposite the hour hand (at 3 o'clock). The sun symbol R is then opposite the SW mark on the dial; which indicates that the sun is in the southwest. The other cardinal points can then be easily calculated.

MSRP is $9,900.
