The watch was done as a collaboration between Cimier and a soccer (ahem, football?) player in Europe named Jorg Stiel. The Swiss player was know for being a good goalie, and currently coaches - I believe. Well he is apparently also a watch lover, and wanted something in yellow and black (a trendy color combo this season for watches). The Cimier Petite Seconde Venom is in a PVD black steel case with sapphire crystal on the front and back of the watch. Inside the watch is the all to common ETA Unitas 6497 manually wound movement. While a very simple movement, it is hardy and reliable, and cleans up pretty nicely when decorated. Here Cimier gave the movement a nice black finish.
As part of the Cimier MasterArt Selection watch collection, the Petite Seconde Venom watch really shines in the dial. The sharp looking high contrast look takes black and white with yellow accents to a new level of cool. Pretty easy to read as well, and the yellow hands are a pleasure to look at. The watch is fitted with a yellow toned (I want to say python strap). Which is odd because the watch is called the "Venom" and a python is a venom-less constrictor snake. The watch will be limited to 200 pieces and retail for 1,560 euros.
