Roquebrune 2 - Corniche Watches

Introducing –
The Limited Edition
Heritage 40
Roquebrune Nº2

LIMITED EDITION OF 250 PIECES IN TWO VERSIONS

Our latest limited edition timepiece is our second celebration of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, one of our favourite spots along the Côte d’Azur. Similar to its predecessor, the Roquebrune Nº2 features hues of brown and grey inspired by the rugged Roquebrune coastline. But whilst it retains the warm themes of its older brother, it also introduces a range of never-before-seen details, including a two-tone dial and a lavish textured calfskin strap. Naturally, brand characteristics like contrasting finishes, fluid lines and polished hand-applied markers remain - making this piece both elegant and vibrant.

Unboxing the Roquebrune Nº2-
Catch A Glimpse of The Watch In Its Natural Habitat

Vintage Inspiration –
A Three Tone Dial with
A Dash of New

The Roquebrune Nº2 features a classic two-tone - a hallmark often found on vintage pieces from the 1930s. Our slightly modernised take features a grained dark brown center and a polished silver edge, clearly inspired by the place it's named after. Additionally, both versions feature rose gold markers and hands which creates a special effect against the shimmering silver beneath.

Limited to 250 Pieces
All Individually Numbered and
Beautifully Packaged

The limited edition Roquebrune Nº2 arrives in two different versions, one in rose gold and one in stainless steel. Individually numbered and engraved, only 250 pieces will ever be produced in each metal. Per usual, our timepieces come beautifully wrapped up, delivered in a stylish dark brown outer box, a stunning piano lacquered wooden box with beige interior as well as your very own owners manual and certificate.

    The Mediterranean Pine Tree –
    A Long Time Riviera Resident

    The Mediterranean pine tree is a native to the region, and one of our absolute favourites. Much like the Eiffel Tower epitomizes Paris, its iconic silhouette is a classic along the rocky coasts of Southern France. We could think of no better motive for our case back. The limited edition Roquebrune No 2 also features an individually engraved number, ranging from 1 to 250.

    Calf Textured Leather Strap
    The Softest and
    Most Comfortable Strap We’ve Ever Produced

    Soft, elegant and extremely versatile, our new textured calfskin strap was pretty much born to be on the wrists of elegant Italian men driving 1950s Alfa Giulietta’s. Regardless of whether it's paired with the rose gold or stainless steel version (and regardless of what you’re driving) it’s sure to give you that lovely la dolce vita feeling.

    The Butterfly Clasp -
    A Flawless Compromise Between
    Elegance and Comfort

    Invented in 1910 by Louis Cartier, the butterfly clasp folds beautifully to provide a tailored fit. Comfortable yet elegant and paired with our all new Taupe Grey textured calfskin strap with soft suede lining, it’s the best of two worlds.

    A Perfect Day in Roquebrune

    Situated between Monaco and Menton, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin’s mixture of pittoresque old charm and nouveau riche is the perfect personification of the French Riviera. With its beautiful surroundings, winding streets and one of the oldest castles in France, it’s no wonder that this place continues to attract the rich and famous. And if you grow tired of its stony beaches, cosy cafés and flashy villas, you’ve got some very special art in Eileen Gray’s “Villa E-1027” and Le Corbusier’s “Le Cabanon” right around the corner.

    What’s for Breakfast?

    On a crisp spring morning, few things are better than enjoying a leisurely breakfast at our favourite Roquebrune café. Enclosed by pine trees and always rich with the smells of eucalyptus, we take slow sips of coffee and listen to the tinks of spoons hunting the last of the cappucino. As we finish reading our array of Sunday newspapers, now cluttered with small crumbs of croissant, we decide caffeine has not fully done the job and that it’s time for a bit of a second wake up.

    Splish, Splash - Time for A Morning Swim

    As we stroll down to Plage du Buse, one of the best public beaches in Roquebrune, we can’t help but smile to ourselves. Even though the sea will still be chilly, it’s more than weighed up by the fact that off-season means we’ll have it all to ourselves. After an admittedly quite short dip, we take a moment to dry in the sun - admiring the villas of the nouveau riche that surround us and our little beach. Just around the corner, architect Eileen Gray’s modernist villa E-1027 peeks out through the pine trees, letting us know that it’s high time for a bit of art.

    An Artsy Afternoon

    Situated on a cliff and featuring astonishing views over the Mediterranean, sits the first architectural work of the designer Eileen Gray: the legendary E-1027. Inaccessible and overrun by decay, it has witnessed wartime shootings, murder and artistic vandalism. After extensive restorations it has finally been brought back to life, and it’s the perfect place to spend our artsy afternoon. As we walk around, it’s clear that this place has endured a lot throughout the years, from murals to bullet holes. But even if it’s not quite what Gray originally had in mind, it’s legendary architecture and compelling history makes it a must visit either way.

    A Game of Pétanque and A Lovely Sunset

    It’s starting to get late, so we pull on a warming cashmere sweater and stroll over to Grand Hôtel du Cap-Martin where we’re having drinks and dinner with a group of friends. We meet up in the private gardens overlooking the water for a game of pre-dinner pétanque, surrounded by elderly men looking on and chuckling. After a lovely meal, we sit on our friends’ balcony and watch the sun slowly setting over glittering lights from the yachts out at sea...
