Switzerland’s second oldest watch brand once again brings forth a world’s first – The Raider Bivouac 9000
Favre-Leuba unveiled the ultimate instrument for all altitudes at the R Lounge in H Hotel – Dubai. Setting new standards in watch design and engineering with the Raider Bivouac 9000, it is bringing back the heritage of Favre-Leuba with a watch that truly pushes boundaries.
Switzerland’s second-oldest watch brand celebrates its 280th anniversary with the groundbreaking watch that demonstrates the ingenuity of the brand and by redefining what has until now been thought to be technically impossible. The Raider Bivouac 9000 is indeed the ultimate instrument for all altitudes.
The Bivouac 9000 is the first mechanical wristwatch capable of measuring altitudes of up to an incredible 9000 meters above sea level. In 1962, when Favre-Leuba launched the world’s first mechanical wristwatch capable of measuring air pressure and altitudes of up to 3000 metres above sea level, the outstanding reliability and precision of this watch, as well as the fact that it was extremely easy to use and read quickly made it a permanent feature on the wrists of mountain climbers, pilots, explorers, and every pioneer who dared to undertake great endeavors.
The Bivouac 9000 is a homage to its legendary 1962 namesake, but has been improved and refined to make it capable of coping with the demands that are now placed on a highly functional instrument that is designed to be reliable companion at extremely high altitudes. The Bivouac 9000 still measures altitude with the aid of an aneroid barometer, but now does so up to an incredible height of 9000 metres above sea level.
