  • Description

    After the success of the C7 Rapide Day Date COSC, a limited edition distinctive in our motorsport Collection for its diamond-like carbon (DLC) case and contrasting red aluminium band, we received a number of requests for that same design to become part of the C7 Rapide Automatic family. In this case [excuse the pun], we were only too happy to oblige!

    Comprised of four separate pieces that have been inspired by the sleek architecture of high-performance sports cars, assembly is a complex process. Its lugs, for example - turned and milled to create their distinctive curved shape - also help support the middle part of the case, while a matte red aluminium band provides a slimmer feel. A clever cohesion of smooth arcs and textures, it's rounded off with our twin-flag logo engraved on the crown and its deep-stamped backplate.

    From one glance at its dial, the Rapide Automatic's automotive influences are immediately apparent: double-height and polished numerals - filled in their centre with SuperLuminova for enhanced legibility - alternate with sloping and faceted indexes. A full minute track with inner triple minute marks provides all-important precision reading the time, its first ten minutes highlighted like a dashboard's rev counter to match the colour of its second hand. Our award-winning 'twin flag' logo appears at 12 o'clock.
  • Movement

    With 26 jewels and an anti-shock system (necessary for ensuring smooth timekeeping throughout those tight chicanes), the Sellita SW200-1 is a popular automatic movement. Dependable and accurate, it features a self-winding mechanism and a 38 hour power reserve, while a date wheel sits at 3 o'clock.

    Boasting a classic frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (that's eight ticks a second), the SW200-1 powers the C7 Rapide Automatic with supreme precision.
