Éclair Effect

You Might Not Have Heard of the Éclair Effect Yet.
Don’t Worry. If You Love Luxury Watches, You Soon Will.

saint Honoré Paris WatchesRenowned Paris watchmaker saint Honoré has developed an exclusive new manufacturing process that duplicates the glittering look of high-quality pavé diamonds at a very reasonable cost. This proprietary finishing process, christened the Éclair Effect by saint Honoré, is already available on the company’s popular ladies Opéra timepieces.

Pavé diamond settings have been around for hundreds of years. This French term literally means paving a surface with diamonds, with little or no metal showing. As you might expect, it is both time consuming and quite expensive for jewelers and fine watchmakers to drill hundreds of tiny holes and then manually set corresponding tiny precious stones into these holes to create the pavé effect.

Saint Honoré has revolutionized this entire process by developing an entirely new way to create the glittering look that women continue to desire. Although the proprietary techniques that saint Honoré uses to create their Éclair Effect watches is a closely guarded secret, the results are available to all.

Timepieces like the saint Honoré Opéra Black Éclair provide a dazzling demonstration of what the Éclair Effect is all about. Even on close inspection, the brilliant, sparkling stones on the dial and bezel of this fabulous timepiece look identical to high quality pavé diamonds.

For over 125 years, saint Honoré has been setting tomorrow’s fashion trends by developing innovative new ways to combine art and technology. The impressive new Éclair Effect is just the latest in a long line of innovations designed to let their customers enjoy the luxury and quality they deserve.

Stephane Sarrazin Racing


by John Sealander  

Well known French racing driver Stéphane Sarrazin may not drive a French car, but he definitely does wear a French watch.

saint Honoré Paris WatchesStéphane Sarrazin is not only one of the best racing drivers in France; he is one of the best-known drivers in the world. This multiple champion started off his 2012 season with a spectacular podium finish at Sebring, competed in 24 Hours of Le Mans and is scheduled to race in the the upcoming World Endurance Championship. Sarrazin was the LMES champion in 2007, as well as the ILMC world champion in 2010 and 2011. This talented driver is equally adept at winning in disciplines as diverse as Formula One and Rally Driving.

In addition to being a superlative driver, Stéphane Sarrazin is also a serious watch aficionado. He has been a saint Honoré Ambassador since 2011 and this year, he has chosen to wear the boldly masculine new Swiss made saint Honoré Haussman City timepiece.

Like Sarrazin himself, the new Haussman City is sporty, chic and totally unique. The new City design retains the iconic screw down bezel and stylish Tonneau shape that made the original saint Honoré Haussman models so popular with fans of the Paris-based watchmaker. With a more understated, sophisticated look and a slimmer profile, the Haussman City will appeal to today’s contemporary urban man.

The 42mm Haussman City is available in a variety of configurations, including two-tone designs with a handsome pink gold bezel. You can choose between quartz and automatic mechanical models, which can be equipped with a leather strap, a special rubber/carbon fiber strap, or a handsome stainless steel bracelet.

The watch Stéphane Sarrazin wears features a PVD coated titanium case with a black carbon fiber dial. Red openwork hands and a red lined rubber/carbon strap with matching red topstitching insures that Stéphane looks like a champion wherever he goes.

Luckily, you don’t have to be a racing driver yourself to look like one. The exciting new saint Honoré Haussman City is available to anyone who appreciates this fresh, subtly urban style. If you would like to see if the Haussman City is a winner on your own wrist, contact your authorized saint Honoré dealer immediately and ask to see the watch that Stéphane Sarrazin wears.
