The Hindenberg Duchess is an extravagant ladies' model which is covered all over with zirconia on the bezel and lugs. Three diamonds also shine on the dial. Thanks to the combination of Roman numerals, skeletonized hands and leather strap, this watch has a thoroughly elegant appearance. The Duchess is powered by a Japanese Miyota self-winding movement.
Technical details Duchess II
Scratch-resistant sapphire glass
Sapphire is one of the hardest of all transparent materials. For watches, sapphire crystal scores highly, especially because of its scratch resistance and high resistance to shocks.
The classic date is found under the dial by means of a rotating disk. This is driven by the movement and moves one place forward at midnight, so that the current date is always visible in the cut-out in the dial.
Screws, and often other steel parts of watches, are blued using controlled oxidation. The refining process achieved by the brief heating not only results in the blue colour of the screws and is considered as being a high-quality and decorative element, but is also an expression of tradition.
