The SB02

From Sartory Billard -

First and foremost, a tip of the hat to Montres de Luxe for writing about them, and to my friend Benjamin Fougère for making me aware of them.

The SB02 is the second offering from Sartory Billard.  And I will further give credit to them for the transparency of the origin of their watches.  The watches are designed by Sartory Billard, in Paris.  The parts (case, crystals, movements, etc.) are produced by subcontractors in Asia.  They are brought to France where they are assembled in the Franche Comté, where one of my favorite places in the world is located - Besançon ; )

The watch is available with what is described as an anthracite dial (above) and a silver dial (below) -

One added twist of the SB02 tale is the ability of the watch owner to change the bezel of the watch on their own to update the look.

And there as also a lot of awareness shown when it came to pricing.

The watch itself is 650 €, which is a very attractive price point.  The "replaceable" bezels can be had for 30 €, with the exception of the Carbon bezel which is slightly more expensive at 45 .  So should you wish to have all four looks, it is still an affordable package.
