Actually, this product does not fit into our digital TOURBILLON platform TICK-TALK. Being a child of the fifties, I naturally love fifties design. For example, a neo-vintage style timepiece like Depancel
Depancel launch the Serie-A Stradale: a timepiece with neo-vintage style and a hybrid meca-quartz movement. For a watchmaking brand inspired by the automotive world, this elegant and sporty new watch is a seamless addition to the Serie-A line designed for gentlemen drivers. Read on for more details about a collection that will take you back in time.
With this new product, Depancel is offering its community of enthusiasts a watch they can wear every day, with a neo-retro look that reminds the timepieces that marked watchmaking in the 1950s.
Serie-A Stradale thus features the large display and the glassbox of old chronographs, which allow you to admire the dial’s many details: a gradient effect recreating the patina of classic bodywork that’s stood the test of time, two large counters characteristic of retro watches that provide maximum readability and a combination of ultra-thin metallic numbers & hour markers for the utmost refinement.
Nero, Verde and Azzurro: each of the three versions is associated with a combination of retro measurement scales, while adding a sporty touch with its telemeter and central red, yellow or orange hand. Use the tachymeter to measure your speed and the telemeter to calculate the distance to a phenomenon you see and then hear.
Depancel designed Serie-A Stradale as an essential watch for fine mechanics lovers , so it retains the codes of the Serie-A range with its recognizable crown inspired by a radiator cap and its ultra-vintage, ergonomic mushroom pushers.

Depancel is a French brand that offers automatic watches at excellent value for money thanks to a co-creation and pre-order model. His mission is to put beautiful watchmaking on the maximum number of wrists, by offering timepieces made in Switzerland or France that come with a lifetime warranty.
Each of the Depancel collections (whose name is the contraction of Delage, Panhard et Facel Vega, three prestigious French car manufacturers), pays tribute to a specific territory of the automotive world and aims to inspire fine mechanics enthusiasts.
In 2021, Depancel invited its community to co-create the collection’s very first chronograph. The widely distributed questionnaire showed the team that there was an interest in a meca-quartz chronograph, a hybrid movement that combines the precision of quartz with the beauty of traditional watchmaking in the form of an automatic chronograph module.
The Serie-A Stradale has a Seiko VK64 movement, perfect for a watch that is both elegant and easy to wear. The combination of a quartz movement and an automatic module means the case is thinner (39mm for 11.5mm thickness) and very light.
Serie-A Stradale: an affordable watch to add to your collection with confidence! Just as for all other Depancel collections, it comes with a lifetime guarantee and pre-orders will be available for €395. This collection goes on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 on the brand’s website: www.depancel.com
