At the same time as its Explorator model, Christian Jacques is launching a collection of sports watches: the Virtus. Although designed for action, this new timepiece is also extremely elegant, particularly when set with black diamonds. A stunning example of the perfection the brand invariably strives for, the Virtus is an expression of inspired harmony.
