KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA,May2023. Beautifully sung by Brigitte Bardot, or BBas she was also knownthen, in the late 60s, our new T1/09 is an ode to somethingthat was lost but now can finally be embraced anewsummer friendship under thesun! A positive note after so much doom and gloom. A burst of positivity withcolours galore! And that’s exactly what strikes you when picking up the T1/09–the skeletonized dial underlayer shows a sun-drenched beach, deck chair beck-oning, while in the water a cheeky whale ogles keenly a lobster–and all thisunder the munificent rays of the SEVENFRIDAY SUN no less!
This picturesque scene is encircled by the bright white hour marker, itself hemmedin by shades of blue just like a tropical lagoon. The sense of cheerfulness andoptimism is further enhanced by a generous dollop of white Berlac lacquer on thebezel itself and a dab of yellow on the crown for good measure too!
Importantly the T1/09 remains first and foremost a SEVENFRIDAY, with its dis-tinctive stainless-steel case and four-layer dial construction. On the reverse, youwill find safely ensconced behind theartwork an NFC chip which allows you tolink with UPO7F. Simply use your iPhone or Android, register, and start exchang-ing with likeminded individuals and receive special offers and invites. Or maybeuse it to summon some more friends to the beach?And just to make sure you understand this watch is made for summer and wetfun, it comes with a soft blue silicone strap and is waterproof to 30 meters, neededif you want to snorkel around the whale and lobster’s burgeoning idyll! So in ourcase Cetacean and Crustacean as opposed to Coquillages et Crustaces! But BBwould agree: the beach is no longer abandoned.
