Corniche Heritage “L’Éte Sans Fin” Chronograph (Review) – Best Summer watch of 2021! – KaminskyBlog

I have reviewed two of their watches in the past, the Heritage 40 and the regular Heritage Chronograph. I was very impressed by those watches and I was waiting for them to release something new and they delivered! It wasn’t what I was expecting as I was waiting for an automatic/mechanical watch, but they surely delivered something really cool. Today we are gonna take a look at Corniche Heritage “L’Éte Sans Fin” Chronograph. Which means Endless summer in French. When I first saw the watches, I thought “damn those are some very sexy colours” haha. Usually microbrands aren’t so brave to use bright colours on classic looking timepieces, but I like that Corniche brought a fresh breath into their very successful classic chronograph design. I already have talked that the Heritage chrono looks similar to Patek Philippe reference 5170P and A.Lange & Sohne 1815 Flyback Chronograph there. I don’t know if those were the influences or anything, but they sure nailed the design and when they added the “L’Éte Sans Fin” collection they also made something that can be weared casually with shorts and polo shirt, not only formal wear which I like. Well I didn’t receive the watch actually in the summer and it is set to deliver in the end of September, but I still think that it is the best Summer watch of the 2021!

The Corniche is based in Sweden, but finds its roots in the famous coastal roads, between Nice and Menton, at the French Riviera. The company offers three different watch lines today. The 40 mm Men’s- and 36 mm Women’s Heritage, both with Miyota 2025 quartz movements. Then there’s the Men’s Historique in 37,5 mm, available with either a Miyota 2025 quartz or a Miyota 9015 automatic movement. The 39 mm Heritage Chronograph with a Seiko VK64 meca-quartz movement and now the Heritage Chronograph line joins the blue and orange colourways “L’Été Sans Fin”. In the last years, this brand has gotten a lot of respect from watch guys as their watches have a very nice and wearable sized watches that aren’t over 40mm. And I also think they have one of the best marketing campaigns in the business. Yes they are still considered a fashion watch brand, but in my eyes they are a real watch company, their designs, quality and everything can easily be compared to higher end spectrum of affordable watches.

In the Heritage Chronograph “L’Éte Sans Fin” line, we have only two versions in stainless steel with baby blue and bright orange coloured dials and matching colour textile straps. The one we have today is the orange dial version as it looked the best, in my opinion + it suits my other orange dialed watches I have (Werenbach and Seiko.).
