Tribute To Brazil

Jaermann & Stübi, the Timepiece of Golf, is paying tribute to Brazil, host of the 2016 Olympic Games, a global event made all the more significant by golf’s return as an Olympic sport this month. The brand’s flagship Royal Open collection is showcasing a new series of models to celebrate the Olympic return (after 112 years of absence) of golf. The brand has partnered with Ian Woosnam, a true reference in modern golf as its brand ambassador.

This timepiece does not feature any specific counters, but benefits from a shock absorber, which enables golfers to play with the watch on their wrist without any risk of damaging it. This new Brazil edition model also features a counter that displays the playing time spent on a 9-hole or 18-hole course. And globe-trotting golfers will always be on time, as the Royal Open watch also displays a second time zone.

The watch functions include hours, minutes, large seconds hand, course time counter and GMT. The watch case is made from stainless steel with brushed and polished finish, and the diameter measures 44 mm. The watch features a glass case back with special transfer, eight screws and engraving, 1.8 mm-thick scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, rotating bezel made with hybrid ceramic and ceramic housing. The watch is water-resistant to 10 meters. With a sunray-brushed translucent green dial and an A10, mechanical self-winding movement, with a 42-hour power reserve the watch has a black alligator strap with a folding clasp.

Jaermann & Stübi is located in Le Locle, where its collections are produced and assembled. A true point of reference, it develops high-end mechanical watches with functions especially intended for golfers, in cooperation with St Andrews Links, the Home of Golf, with which the brand holds an official license. The brand has developed an in-house mechanical counter that records the number of strokes played hole after hole, a retroactive display of these scores, and a function that adds them together at the end of a round, regardless of the number of holes played. At the end of each game, the rotating bezel makes it possible to compare the net score with the player’s handicap taken into consideration.

A good golfer’s swing produces a force of 20 to 40 G in a few milliseconds. Jaermann & Stübi has developed and patented a shock absorber especially designed for this application. It reduces the effects of shocks for increased protection of the mechanism and the complication of its watches.

By combining design and technology, Jaermann & Stübi, the Timepiece of Golf, is paying homage once again to the world’s most practiced individual sport. The expertise of its watchmakers and the elegance of its unique collections ensure that the young Swiss brand occupies a leading position in the select world of high-quality made in Switzerland watches.
