Back to basics
The ST19 edition of this historic Seagull movement forms the basis for the most recent creation by Depancel, discreetly named the Legend 60s. Depancel collectors had made clear their interest in seeing the brand move back towards its racing chronograph roots – and now it has.
In the interests of historical accuracy, the surround of this Legend 60s collection has been designed to reproduce exactly the same feel as the original chronographs. The diameter has been studiously kept at 39mm, the standard in the 1960s. The case is made from steel, the best material for withstanding the harsh conditions of Formula One racing. The strap is perforated with small holes, mirroring a pattern also to be found on drivers’ gloves at that time.
