Jubileon Superellipse Chrono
Here’s one that is on loan to me for review that really makes me appreciate the creativity of watch brands on the market today. This is the Superellipse automatic chronograph from Jubileon Singapore. And it’s a lovely example of…. well I’m not sure exactly how to classify it except to say that it’s a lovely example of a well made timepiece that offers huge value, excellent specs and absolutely oozes character.
The Superellipse chrono is a manly 42mm SS case that in this specific model is finished in an IP vintage rose gold look that actually comes across as nearly a bronze sporting a rugged patina. It offers a 3 subdial face with a chronograph, and day / date function from a venerable ETA Valjoux which peeks through an exhibition case back showing off its custom logo rotor.
While this model is on a lovely padded calf skin strap with rather cool white stitching and a large buckle in the same finish, I understand that this will be a stretch goal and a sailcloth strap will be standard.
The inner rotating bezel offers a second time zone which is manipulated via the 9 o’clock screw down crown which ensures that once set you won’t knock it put if alignment accidentally. I like that! The crown at 3 o’clock is also screw down and is what you would expect to operate the time and day/date set. It feels solid and has an accurate actuation when used. The pushers for the chrono function are crisp and provide wonderful feedback as the large second hand snaps back when reset.
As I said this watch is tricky to classify but it is a watch made for a person who is active, a traveler, has a taste for nice things, and exudes a “joie de vivre!” And all uniqueness aside it’s just a nicely put together watch that offers exceptional value. Especially with a preorder price of $750USD. Having the day/date and chronograph complication along with a respectable 100M water resistance, sapphire Crystal, lovely finishing options for the SS case and attention to detail such as liberally applied BGW9 lume means this watch is definitely worth a look.
