After seven years of creations with its Clubmaster cushion line, BRISTON creates a totally newline with a cambered-barrel shape opening the possibilities scope and allowing all promising areas and form of expression: The Streamliner.

For this new timepiece, BRISTON draws its inspiration from Streamline American style, created in the 1930’s and synonymous of modern design. Modern Streamline takes root from Art-Deco but stands out from it by introducing smoother and more sensual lines. These are those curves and strengths from those arches which outline this new BRISTON case in 42x42mm, all in tight curves.

With its refined design, simultaneously dynamic and fluid, the Streamliner model case was developed to provide maximum comfort around the wrist. Made from acetate or stainless steel, its curved shape perfectly fits to the wrist.

In acetate as in steel, cut sections characterize and enhance the case curve. For this purpose, BRISTON innovates with three new smoked acetates. A particular attention is paid to steel and rose gold PVD versions as the flanks, decorated with a mirror polishing finishing, adding light and contrasting with the case body which is vertically brushed finished. The angles are bevelled one by one to ensure a perfect result.

To balance with the case lines apparent sobriety, this new model’s complexity lies in its dials, composed of three superimposed  layers:

  • Top layer in black PVD or steel with a “circular brushed” decoration and hollowed-out numerals
  • Transparent middle layer with the indications BRISTON, Automatic as well as an applied small-second
  • Lower layer in PVD gun treatment or steel with a “Côte de Genève” decoration.

The delicate work on the dial is harmoniously completed by baton-shaped hands that are both skeleton and fitted with white, blue or orange Superluminova® inserts.

Each Skeleton Streamliner watch houses a Miyota 8N40 skeleton automatic movement manufactured by Citizen. Featuring a small-seconds at 5 o’clock, this movement sublimates the work on the dial. The transparent back of the case provides an unobstructed view of this caliber, specially equipped with a skeleton oscillating weight.

Finally, BRISTON chose to introduce the Streamliner Skeleton on two-parts vintage leather straps. Specially developed by BRISTON, they are equipped with a quick pin presto system that allows the strap to be changed & to keep the interchangeability so dear to the brand.
