Massena LAB and independent luxury watchmaker, Mathey-Tissot are partnering for their fourth collaboration. This time, the two parties have worked hand-in-hand to co-create a fully Swiss-made, and vintage-style Mathey-Tissot x Massena LAB Chronograph ’68.
Drawing inspiration from the year 1968, the timepiece serves to be a tribute to a time that witnessed drastic cultural and societal changes in history. Cased in 41mm stainless steel, the watch is equipped with a uni-directional, 120-clock bezel. Its mostly monochromatic palette is accentuated with vivid touches of cobalt blue, red, and metal that are incorporated as its sub-counters, indices, and lume-filled handset.
Powering the collaborative reference the Landeron caliber 73, a Swiss-made, self-winding movement that provides up to 43 hours of power reserve. Turning over to the back of the watch, co-branded engravings and a unique batch number can be spotted. In echoing the dial’s color registers, the watch is accompanied by a matching cobalt blue leather strap.
The Mathey-Tissot x Massena LAB Chronograph ’68 is released in a limited production of 99 units with a price tag of $1,295 USD, available only at Massena LAB’s website.
