In the realm of timekeeping mastery, Bravur emerges as a true contender with the latest addition to their Grand Tour collection – the La Vuelta III. This remarkable timepiece draws its inspiration from the renowned Vuelta a España, embodying a perfect blend of sophistication and functionality tailored for the modern man.
At its core, the La Vuelta III showcases a 38.2mm case meticulously crafted from 316L stainless steel, boasting a chic matte black PVD coating. The watch’s heart beats to the rhythm of a Swiss-made Sellita SW511 movement, offering impeccable automatic winding. The watch presents a trio of sub-dials, including a 15-minute counter and a 12-hour counter – ideal for tracking intervals and riding times, respectively. The centerpiece is a 60-second chronograph hand, initiated with the top chronograph button.
Choose your style adventure with the option of a sporty red rubber strap or an elegant black leather strap, ensuring the watch seamlessly fits into any setting. Hand-built in the picturesque town of Båstad, Sweden, each La Vuelta III carries a distinct character. The red accents on the dial pay homage to the Bravur Vuelta a España’s iconic red leader’s jersey, while the recessed red triangle at 12 o’clock mirrors the final kilometer’s “flamme rouge.”
Sporting a matte black case, the La Vuelta III harmoniously combines a striking contrast with its red and white dial. The timepiece houses the intricate Swiss movement within a sandblasted black ceramic-coated case, offering a modern edge. A racing-inspired checker pattern on the case back and a unique serial number add an air of exclusivity.
The Grand Tour case also reveals a sapphire case back showcasing the Swiss movement’s meticulous craftsmanship, including rhodium plating, blue screws, and a custom rotor with an etched “finish line” pattern. The movement boasts 27 jewels and an impressive power reserve of up to 62 hours.
Impeccably assembled, tested, and regulated in Bravur’s Swedish workshop, the La Vuelta III epitomizes precision and dedication. Priced at $2,590, this timepiece is more than a watch; it’s a testament to the fusion of artistry and innovation.
