Round and larger – the new impressive C-Type by Paul Picot

Le Noirmont, May 2008. The Paul Picot C-Type range has long occupied an enviable position in the world of exclusive diving watches. Striking shapes, distinctive colours and successful innovative features give this extraordinary chronograph its uniqueness and its exceptional character. The Paul Picot 48mm C-Type is opening a new chapter and gives a new insight into the collection. The high-quality titanium of the watch guarantees its lightness on your wrist. 
Paul Picot is renowned not only for its perfect mastery of the art of watchmaking, but also for its sense of innovation and originality. The Noirmont-based brand has proven its particular skills several times through the C-Type model. This spring, Paul Picot is proud to present the new 48 mm C-Type – a real revolution. Its 48 mm diameter enhances further this fascinating chronograph.
 The new 48mm C-Type is available in two versions. Paul Picot draws attention once again through its art of playing with shape, design and different materials. The two all-titanium models, produced in limited editions of 500 pieces, are characterised by their sporty look. They are mainly distinguishable by a subtle interplay of colours. In the first version, which is entirely in the colour of titanium, only the bezel only is edged with black, while, in the second version, the tips, horns and bezel are also black.
 The power and elegance of the entirely newly designed dial of the 48mm C-Type is utterly captivating. The two superimposed dials give the watch its personality. The upper dial is made of dark carbon fibre conferring to the watch its sporty character. In the lower part of the second dial, the subtle engine-turned work adds a touch of contrast.
