«QUI S'Y FROTTE, S'Y PIQUE» 

 

Named after the glorious and highly awarded 26e Régiment d'Infanterie, the AXIOM «26» BLEU HORIZON is an homage to the Great War Heroes wearing the unforgettable uniform. 

 

The early days of the XXth century saw a radical change in watchmaking: the pocket

watch was promptly being replaced by the wristwatch, much better suited to military use. Synergie of the Great War watches and tomorrow's technology, the AXIOM «26» BLEU HORIZON is an heritage of the Master Watchmakers of the early XXth century.

 

Protected by an elegant and utterly resistant domed sapphire crystal, the dial is made with a blue enamel finish to remind the Poilu's distinctive uniform wore since late 1915, while other elements are left red to have the watch face making the Drapeau Tricolore.

 

It was of importance for us to have the Flag of France featured in the «26» BLEU HORIZON.

THE RIFLE THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

 

True symbol of the French WWI soldier, the Mle 1886 "Lebel" rifle was the first firearm ever to use smokeless powder, invented by Paul Vieille in 1884. 

 

Revolutionnary, incredibly solid and reliable, it also proved to have unrivalled range and accuracy. It made of France the world's most modern army at the time of the rifle issuing. 

 

The Mle 1886 "Lebel" rifle definitely changed the warfare.

 

The back of the «26» BLEU HORIZON, is engraved with the stylized rear and front sights of the legendary Lebel Mle 1886 rifle, the Poilu's faithful ally.   

 

The 26e Régiment d'Infanterie motto «Qui s'y frotte, s'y pique» ("Touch me who dares"), is also finely engraved, while each watch is individually serial numbered.
