Launched in 2018, HERBELIN’s Cap Camarat collection has been evolving with its sporty chic design, paying homage to the brand’s watchmaking heritage. With the release of the HERBELIN Cap Camarat Square in 2022, now equipped with an automatic movement, the French watchmaker has pushed its contemporary style further while maintaining its neo-vintage and urban spirit.
Design and Construction
The HERBELIN Cap Camarat Square boasts a sleek and robust geometric structure with a square case measuring 39mm x 39mm, featuring rounded angles and crown protection. The bezel, decorated with six screws, stands out with vertical brushing and polished facets, adding a touch of elegance to its sporty look.
The new square-shaped watch also features a horizontal black dial, inspired by the 70s, with beveled indices and faceted rectangular hour and minute hands covered with luminescent material. The central second hand, which stands out in white, punctuates an extremely precise minute track located on the perimeter. A date window located at 6 o’clock completes the dial, offering excellent legibility of information.
The watch comes with a high-performance black FKM elastomer strap, designed to fit the watch’s case and cut on the sides, echoing the existing metal bracelet. Integrated into the case, the strap reinforces the model’s charisma while being very comfortable to wear due to its great flexibility.
