The word “tonneau” might sound fancy, but in actuality it’s just the French word for “barrel.” It’s also the name for one of the greatest men’s wristwatches ever created.
First developed in 1906 by a famous French watch designer, the tonneau watch is one of the world’s oldest men’s wristwatch designs. Essentially a rectangle shape with curved sides, the watch was named for its resemblance to a barrel.
Elegant and distinguished, the tonneau is the watch of choice for the debonair man on the move. That’s why the geniuses in our watch department have crafted the Cognac Tonneau, a handsome chronograph watch that’s as functional as it is stylish.
In our update of this classic watch design, we’ve placed a Swiss precision movement under a brass dial and an understated black face. This watch features a date window at 6 o’clock, a stop watch function and water resistance up to 3 ATM. Fitted with a crocodile embossed chocolate leather strap, the Cognac Tonneau is the perfect watch for the manly man who doesn’t mind dressing up from time to time.
So dust off your tux, lace up your Oxfords and slip on the Cognac Tonneau, a watch that ensures you’ll never be underdressed. Don’t you think it’s time you had a watch worthy of all that you’ve accomplished?
