Massena LAB is proud to present the Habring² x Massena LAB Chrono Felix Perpetual, or LAB-CFP, a monopusher chronograph and perpetual calendar featuring the all new, in-house Habring² caliber A11CP.
The dial of the Habring² x Massena LAB-CFP is inspired by the Patek Philippe reference 1518, an almost legendary perpetual calendar chronograph first introduced in the 1940s and a “grail watch” among the most determined collectors to this very day. Connoisseurs will feel the influence of the 1518 particularly strongly in the use of applied, Arabic numerals for the hour markers on the dial of the Massena LAB-CFP.
The monochromatic, black-and-steel dial of the LAB-CFP takes its conceptual inspiration from another medium: photography, and specifically film negatives. When developing a photograph using a negative, the brightest areas of the negative will, once fully processed, appear the darkest. This is the concept of the LAB-CFP, and the result is a striking, high-contrast, and easily legible dial.
The LAB-CFP is a monopusher chronograph perpetual calendar which displays hours and minutes, day of the week (at 3 o’clock), month and leap year indicator (at 6), day of the month (at 9) and moonphase and chronograph thirty minute counter (at 12).
The LAB-CFP is powered by an all-new, in-house caliber from Habring²: the manual-winding A11CP. This combination of a monopusher chronograph and a perpetual calendar is both a rare combination and a technical feat. When considering the small size of the caliber’s footprint, fitting inside a case diameter of only 38.5mm, this is an impressive technical achievement for an independent manufacture.
