Our Classic Reinvented.
When La Touraine first started in 2018, our very first watch was the Legacy. Designed to be a minimalist watch in style, it was the modern watch for the modern man.
Customers loved it. So did we, but we wanted to create something even better.
Improving On Our Best Selling Minimalist Watch
It's always risky to mess with something that people enjoy. You run the risk of them not liking the changes or finding yourself having to defend your work across social media.
With this in mind, we went back to the drawing board in late 2020 in order to build something truly special.
We pulled in the Legacy's great fit and style but chose materials and parts that were from watches which cost a lot more to increase the value for our customers.
We wanted to enhance the Legacy in ways that owners would notice the moment they unboxed it while also improving it in ways that only time magnifies.
To do this, we replaced the hardened mineral glass with a much more scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass. Optically balanced, this glass will withstand the harshest of scrapes without needing to worry.
At the heart of the newest Legacy is the movement itself. After looking at offerings from Seiko and Miyota, we decided to go with a Swiss made Ronda 763 movement. This movement will keep time for years with it's Swiss heritage of watchmaking behind it.
Attached to that star movement are hands coated in C1 lume so that the time is visible to you even in the lowest of light conditions.
To house the finer crystal glass and Swiss accuracy, the lightweight zinc alloy case has been upgraded to a gunmetal 316L stainless steel. 316L Stainless Steel is better for high temperature use and more corrosion resistant, which helps with a watch that's designed to get water on it.
The improved water resistance is one piece of the new Legacy that was called out early in it's design. Boasting a 5 ATM rating, the new Legacy can be used when swimming, in the shower or at the beach without worry.
Finally, the quick release equipped leather band is now made of genuine leather, featuring a brushed stainless steel buckle with the La Touraine name laser etched in.
These new changes all add up to a higher level of quality which will easily handle the daily wear and tear.
During this pre-order, this newly improved and re-imagined Legacy will be on sale for only $119.
At $119, you are getting a minimalist watch that is built as well as a $350 luxury name brand for much less.
Because at La Touraine, it's not about the marketing...it's about building a great watch.
