Mirage

The idea of this watch was born from a mirage, a pure fantasy, the nostalgic dream of a happy era. At the end of the 1960s, between the continuation of the Dolce Vita and the expression of new aspirations, a boundless appetite for freedom was leading to a promising future.

The heat, the road, the horizon

A romantic ride on an elegant and racy transalpine supercar, more specifically a Lamborghini Miura. With the lyrical soundtrack of its powerful twelve-cylinder V-engine, the speedster gently rolls along the sinuous mountainside roads of the Italian and then French Riviera, from Portofino to Saint-Tropez. In addition to the thrill of speed, there are improvised stops on the wild creeks for a picnic or a swim. .

The thrill of an improvised getaway

The bold lines of the Italian cars at the genesis of ' Wedge Design ' inspired the aerodynamic curves of the Mirage watch. Its design features a retro-futuristic balance in the blend of rounded corners and the frank lines of the chamfer surrounding it.

Mirage Capsule

The mechanical heart of the watch, is distinguished by its radiant and sophisticated dial. The delicate moving reflections of the light on its 'Sun' -finished dial reveal its fine metal hands. These wander between the bright polished steel ‘stick’ markers at the precise rhythm of its mechanical self-winding Swiss movement. It features a date display, a second hand with the Hegid monogram and an openworked oscillating mass marked with EVOLUTION. The Mirage capsule remains on the wrist for diving in water up to a depth of 100 metres. When the sunset reveals the night and its delights, charged with the sun's rays of the day, it enables to stroll until twilight thanks to the glow of its luminescent hands and its 40-hour power reserve.

Mirage Carrure

The resistant body of the watch, wears a sharp octogonal silhouette in steel. The sobriety of the brushed up satin finish on its surface matches perfectly with the polished metal of the crown and the other metallic details of the Mirage Capsule. This Carrure assembles naturally with the other  Hegid's Capsules from both mechanical and aesthetical considerations. Its aerodynamic curves and its robust bezel which is flush with the sapphire glass offer a Coupé profile to this slender watch. Propelled at high speed, attached to the arm that steers the vehicle, while the other hand shifts gears, the Mirage Carrure takes a breath of fresh air and its multiple facets interact with the sun's rays.

Mirage Bracelet

The Mirage Bracelet is another original creation. Its quilted strands suggest the comfortable seats in padded leather, so typical for the sports and grand touring cars of the 60s. The bracelets are made of lined nappa leather and are resistant to both sun and rain. This saddle leather finish is the ultimate touch that marks the intrepid personality of the Mirage.

Hegid watches are made up of three parts. The different elements that compose the Mirage can be acquired separately and adapted to the pre-existing Hegid watches, according to desires and needs, in order to never get tired of our watch.
