BUILT UPON A FOUNDATION OF PASSION

____________________________________________________

Méraud’s mission is to create exceptional, yet affordable vintage-inspired timepieces.
The result is the Méraud Bonaire.
A mechanical timepiece built by modern standards with a pure design where form follows function.

MECHANICAL SWISS MOVEMENT

____________________________________________________

The Méraud Bonaire is powered by a modified Caliber STP1-11, which boasts the precision of Swiss automatic mechanical movement.
It operates at 28,800 bph and offers a 44h power reserve. Each movement is finished with both “perlage” and “Côte de Genève” finish and a Méraud signature.
The movement is modified to a no-date movement, all components related to the date have been removed.
Upon request STP has adjusted the movements that there are only 2 crown positions, one for winding and one to set the time.

DESIGN

____________________________________________________

The devil is in the details. And that is often where others lack.
We went all out on details. We’re watch guys and we know what’s important.
This goes from drilled lugholes to even the engraving on the backside of the buckle.
A mixture of brushed and polished finishings. Polished bezel edge, polished chamfers, circular and brushed lugs.
The different finishings give the Bonaire a disctinctive character and charm.
It gives the watch a certain depth and contrast.
The bezel insert is made out of sapphire and mimics the “bakelite” bezels from back in the day.
It’s a curved bezel and gives a beautiful dimension to the timepiece.
Polished hands and polished applied indexes. The inner steel bezel ring is also polished.
The Bonaire comes in 3 dial variations, “Onyx Black” with a glossy dial and patina-like lume, “Marine Blue” with a blue sunburst dial and “Graphite Grey” with a grey sunburst dial.
Both blue and grey dial have C3 SuperLuminova.
Staying true to the watches of the 60’s, the elegant 316L stainless steel cases measure a perfect 39mm. In addition, the cases are finished with striking contrasts thanks to a mix of linear, circular, high-polished and brushed finishes.
Thanks to the drilled lugholes the straps can easily be exchanged by using the strap tool that is added with the package.

With a height of 12,5mm and a classical case build, the watch has a masculine, elegant and sporty look on the wrist. Perfect for any occasion.

The strap, an important detail that is so often overlooked by many. For Méraud it’s an essential piece of the puzzle.
The skins are bought at the tanneries in France and Germany. The skins then go to a small leathercrafter where they are cut to straps, partially machine stitched and partially hand stitched. Each single strap is finished by hand. The result is a piece of art and true craftsmanship.
