Official description

"We are happy to support a major cause of scientific research that still affects so many children and adults," explains Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, President of Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud. "This enduring commitment has enabled us to develop bold unique pieces, stemming from lengthy aesthetic and technical research, reflecting powerful choices that our collectors did not necessarily expect. The Chronomètre FB 1 "Night Star" reflects the same perspective.”

A play on colours is at the heart of the design of this one-of-a-kind model. The FB 1 "Night Star" features hands and numerals equipped with white luminescent material. Those contrast with the dark tones of the case and dial, evoking the gleam of the stars in the night sky.

Historically, stars were navigators' reference points for their position on the oceans, thus recalling the ancestry of the FB 1 collection. Symbolically, white Super-LumiNova evokes the ray of hope that inspires the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
