MER-AIR-TERRE STRENGTHEN ITS PARTNERSHIP WITH THE FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION

The Foreign Legion is, without a doubt, the most prestigious army corps in the French Army.

 

In 2013, on the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Camerone, MER-AIR-TERRE was chosen to create two original watches, one was an automatic taken from a prestige series limited to 150 copies and a quartz chronograph with a precision of 1/20th manufactured as a field watch.

Due to the success of these series, we are proud to announce the creation of two new Limited Editions in 2017.

 

 

High Command Legion XL, Limited Edition of 300 pieces

An automatic electric (Hybrid) watch which inscribes itself in the timeless code of the military watch: natural tanning oily leather strap, large surgical steel case, readability and simplicity of the dial, with the subtle details of the codes from this elite institution.

 


This series has been designed to be robust with its reinforced springbars, thick domed sapphire crystal, screw crown and case back, yet classical with its discreet and pure design.

We have chosen an hybrid mechanism in order to increase the power reserve up to 120 days and guarantee a strict accuracy.

The High Command watch is perfect under the sleeve of a high-ranking military officer or a modern man who just loves things of beauty. Discreet but easy to read, refined but robust, it is ideal for use in the preparation of everyday missions.


Tactical Legion Chrono, Limited Edition of 500 pieces

This OPS chronograph will be much appreciated by its functions, robustness, and its military tactical design.

 


No details are left apart, extra thick sapphire crystal with antiglare coating inside, reinforced springbars set on very short integrated lugs, reversed screw-in pushers and crown for a maximum comfort during operations.

The guilloche dial in a semi mat OD green finishing bears the official colors of this famous unit with a touch of red on the central hand of the chronograph.

 

 

 

These 2 Limited Editions are officially certified by the French Foreign Legion and will equip these soldiers according to their missions.

The institution allow us to release these watches to civvies and an agreement has been established for the coming 4 years.

In order to support them, a percentage of the sales will be offered back to the institution to help them taking care of injured legionnaires and ancient soldiers in need.
