The namesake of the watch, "Blue Ring" comes from quite simply that - the lovely toned blue ring with the tachymetric scale around the dial of the watch. The movement appears to be an ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph with a curious substitution for the day of the week indicator. Next to the date you'll see a little window with a smiling face. Either each day of the week will have it's own face, or more appropriately, the weekends will have a smiling face, while the week days will have some manner of serious face.
While Alain Silberstein watches almost epitomize French avant garde, his timepieces are always quite legible, and of a solid high quality. Here the soft edged case has a simple rubber strap attachment. A nice watch that I hope will enjoy good production numbers and perhaps make it here to the United States. The watch will available at Colette in Paris starting in September 2009.
