The Legend of the Alicanto:

The Alicanto is a bird that belongs to the mining legends of the Atacama Desert in Chile. Legend has it that the Alicanto eats gold, giving its body a beautiful metallic color.

Chased by ill-intentioned miners, the bird will take them to the depths of the mines, to places so remote that they will be lost forever.


“A jewel of watchmaking”
With its dial subtly adorned by this bird decorated in gold leaf, this top-of-the-range mechanical watch is sure to stand out on ladies’ wrists.

Limited edition of 200 pieces

Following the success of the Thunderbird II model, many women were disappointed by the chronograph’s imposing size.

We created this 38mm watch, with its intricate decoration, for the ladies.
Maintaining the aesthetics of the “Legendary Birds” collection and the brand’s signature style, this watch is manufactured and assembled in our workshops.
For this women’s automatic watch, we wanted a very elegant and luxurious look. In the workshop itself, we had to learn the subtle art of gold leaf decoration. This little bird called Alicanto takes a whole day to decorate.

This feminine timepiece is also equipped with a Swiss automatic mechanical movement, reworked, decorated and adjusted on our workbenches.

It’s an alliance of elegance, finesse and precision.

This watch is Made in France and guaranteed for 5 years.
