Caterpillar Timepieces 2015 Preview




Was honoured to be invited for the preview of the Caterpillar timepieces at Shangri-la Hotel Kuala Lumpur recently. On hand to brief us more about the brand and their timepieces was the Head of Caterpillar Timekeeping Equipment, Mr.Olivier Jeanbouquin.

The brand Caterpillar is mostly synonymous with being the world’s largest maker of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines for over 80 years. The brand achieved that feat by constantly developing innovative and new high technology for its products, and now brings the same principle to Cat timekeeping equipment lifestyle products.

Cat watches are constructed from the highest quality materials, and are developed to meet stringent requirements, without compromises. Each Cat watch encompasses cutting edge design and high functionality to offer a solid performance in a variety of active situations. The brand places great emphasis on the casual and powerful design of the watch and the philosophy behind the Caterpillar brand, resulting in tough, durable yet well designed watches.

PU Operator Series

The OPERATOR line from Cat® watches pays tribute to the vibrant colours of the season and comes in elegant silver, vibrant black, bright orange, radiant green, lively red, or in the attractive black/yellow combination.

The OPERATOR multi is waterproof up to 10 ATM and houses a precise multifunction movement. The surface of the big round case (48 mm) is comprised of black PVD-coated stainless steel, which creates a nice contrast to the coloured dial and strap details. Beneath the hardened mineral glass is a black/yellow dial with eye-catching Cat logo.

The tri-compax layout contains a day, date and 24 hours function at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock that guarantee just the right amount of functionality. The stylish pushers and the notched crown, big Arabic numerals in yellow and the luminous hour and minute hand are additional highlights of this timepiece. A black nylon strap with protective leather inlays and yellow stitching adds to the sophisticated design.

The OPERATOR watch collection is available in different versions (date or multifunction) with a number of diverse dial colours (black, silver, black/yellow, black/green, black/light green, black/yellow, black/orange, and black/red).
