BLACK SATIN

The Portobello Black is a new limited edition of 75 units. The watch differs from the original Portobello by swapping the orange ceramic bezel insert for a black one with a satin finish. This single change transforms the watch by shifting the focus from the bezel to the waffle-patterned blue dial. As a result, the watch wears even more compact than the original. The second effect the new bezel insert has is that the black ceramic matches with the black sub-dials, amplifying the matching patterns on the integrated rubber strap and dial that make them look like a single element. 

 

With its black and blue colour palette, the Portobello Black is a watch for fans of understatement. But that doesn't mean there aren't a host of details that make this one sophisticated chronograph. The tapered hour markers are polished and faceted to catch the light, whilst the sub-dials have an engine-turned finish. Meanwhile, the polished hands have a blue base to match the dial, and just like the markers they're filled with luminous BGW9 Super-LumiNova. Lastly, with 100m water resistance and a sapphire crystal, this is the perfect "go anywhere, do anything" chronograph. 

 

The first batch of the Portobello Black contains 50 units, with the remaining 25 arriving at a later date. 

Features

Sublime Slopes - The lugs are the defining feature of the Chrono-Contempo’s case. In addition to a large polished chamfer that cuts into the brushed finish, the lugs themselves have a “ski slope” shape where the tips curve slightly upwards. It’s a subtle touch that has a big impact on how the watch feels on the wrist.

Supreme Comfort - The Portobello Black's case measures 38.5mm in diameter and is made of 316L stainless steel. As to the watch’s thickness, its total depth is only 13.4mm, which makes the Portobello remarkably easy to wear.

Glow Up - The hands, hour markers, and bezel have all had applications of BGW9 Super-LumiNova, ensuring legibility under any circumstances. 

Continental GMT - The bezel is bidirectional and has a ceramic insert that’s etched with a twelve-hour scale so that it can be used to track a second time zone.

Swiss Precision - Inside the watch beats a manually wound Swiss Sellita SW510M b movement. This dependable calibre is the perfect choice to rely on to keep the Chrono-Contempo ticking away, and it has 23 jewels, Incabloc shock protection and a large 63-hour power reserve.

STORY

As you might have guessed, the Portobello Black takes its name from London’s iconic Portobello Road. The vibrant buildings of this bustling street made for the perfect inspiration for our colourful chronographs. Portobello Road began to take form as the area was urbanised in the mid-1800s, and takes its name from Portobello Farm, which itself was named after the Battle of Porto Bello in 1739. As London developed during the Victorian era, so did Portobello, and its now famous market became increasingly popular, developing into the landmark we know today.
