The Bivouac 9000

From Favre Leuba -

On the surface of things, it looks like a cool vintage inspired watch.  But there is much more to the Bivouac 9000 than meets the eye.  

Hours, minutes, seconds and date are there.  But add to that a power reserve indicator at 12 o'clock, and an altimeter?

You've got something pretty special.  

The case is titanium, measuring a hearty 48 mm, with a theme appropriate stone grey dial.

Here are the pertinents, straight from the source:


Hand-wound FL311 movement, based on the EMC 3903M caliber; specially designed mechanisms for ­altimeter and power-reserve indicator; power reserve of 65 hours


Hours, minutes, small seconds, central hand to display altitudes of 3,000 m per full rotation, sub dial for displaying altitudes of up to 9,000 m and air pressure in hPa, power-reserve indicator, date display


Bidirectional rotating bezel with anodized aluminum insert; screw-in crown; sapphire crystal with anti reflective coating on both sides; screwed and aligned case back; diameter 48 mm, height 18.7 mm, water-resistant up to 3 bar/30 m


Applied indexes; luminous indexes and hour and minute hands, red hand for altimeter
