New Models & Press Coverage
The Biarritz. A watch inspired by a beautiful sunset after the perfect trip to France. A fully automatic timepiece with a Swiss Orange hand sweeping around our unique Night Blue dial.
We do not mass produce our timepieces, as a consequence they sell out incredibly quickly; follow our Instagram @leonidaswatch to stay informed and to ensure you don't miss out on launch day.
TROPIC. Swiss made Tropic watch straps were supplied as original equipment some 50 years ago, they are widely regarded as the best watch straps no longer available - they too fell victim to the quartz revolution. As an additional nod to the brand's heritage Leonidas are proud to offer Tropic watch straps once again (vintage NOS).
The 5024 is now sold out. We have no plans to put the 5024 back into production however early 2019 will see teaser images starting to surface of the eagerly anticipated 5025. Expect a fully automatic timepiece with some serious diving capabilities.
The Maverick. A Top Gun inspired fully automatic Swiss made timepiece boasting a surgeon grade stainless steel case, sapphire crystal and an original Swiss Tropic band as standard. As ever our logo takes up its rather unorthodox position in the bottom half of the dial. Coming soon.
The 64 is now available to order. A watch inspired by Nicolas G.Hayek who rescued (in part) the Swiss watch industry with his idea of producing a timepiece designed to be purchased as a second watch. This was to become known as the Swatch.
The idea was developed by other companies most notably Tag-Heuer who produced the F1. This is where Leonidas flip the paradigm somewhat; the Swatch along with the F1 both used batteries and plastic to keep costs down and to allow them to compete with their Chinese counterparts. The 64 will use materials usually reserved for watches at a much higher price point, but will be sold in line with the second watch concept (simply put, it will be affordable).
The 64's surgeon grade stainless steel case will house a 25 jewel Swiss made automatic movement, it will be available in a plethora of hand configurations and delivered on a Swiss Tropic Sport band.
The 64 see's a departure from huge watch cases favored by the premiership, and a return to a smarter silhouette.
The 64 pays tribute to the watchmakers of the 70's, the creative thinking of Hayek in the 80's, and those who were less fortunate and fell by the wayside as victims of the quartz revolution.
The 5024 is now available to order. The attention to detail Leonidas are so proud of is evident as soon as you take a look at the spec. It boasts a 25 jewel automatic movement, a case made of surgeon grade stainless steel, sapphire glass, and comes supplied with a Barrington watch winder as standard. The buyer can choose an original Swiss Tropic band or can decide on a hand stitched crocodile or shark instead (at no extra cost).
The logo positioning on the dial of the 5024 is a subtle nod to the days when Heuer-Leonidas dominated the supply of timing devices to major sporting events.
Due to the hand configuration on a stopwatch, it's not possible to place the logo in the traditional space. Instead it's positioned above the nbr 30 marker (or 6 on a watch). It's a nice touch to see it taking up the same position some 50 years later on the 5024.
The pure white and overtly bold logo used on this model is also a little nod to COMEX. Coincidentally the positioning is also the same. No doubt purists would have already recognised that.
Valjoux 7550. Time to go back to our roots with a chronograph offering. We are currently in the advanced stages of development and hope to publish further details and teaser images of this timepiece shortly. We are aiming for an autumn release date.
