At the heart of this new watchmaking fable, interpreted in five versions, two graceful butterflies flit around a daisy whose white lacquered petals overlap in the same way as a real flower. Christophe Claret invites two butterflies in blue, orange, red or green Super-LumiNova, depending on the version, to provide a joyful escort for the passing of time Dance Town Download. The darker one, symbolizing the female, is perched on a daisy petal that rotates every hour. Meanwhile, the lighter one, embodying the male, indicates the minutes. Sitting lightly atop a stem attached to the precious pistil made of rubies, blue sapphires or emeralds, it literally flutters around the white mother-of-pearl dial.

The visual enchantment does not end there. In addition to the Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the dial presents a second display. One press on the pusher at 2 o’clock makes the numbers disappear to reveal the phrase: “Il m’aime passionnément” (He loves me passionately) 인프런 강의 다운로드. This message can be personalized via a configurator on the brand website. The watch can display any message requested by the owner, in the desired language, with a limited number of characters. In developing this optical illusion game, Christophe Claret drew inspiration from the famous “Wow!!” magic trick, which has never before been incorporated into a watch. The changeover of the two dials is achieved by superimposing two disks: the metallized transparent sapphire upper disk bearing a mosaic of transparent squares rotates over the fixed mother-of-pearl lower disk overlaid with another pad-printed black or blue varnished mosaic incorporating the text and the numerals. Releasing the pusher makes the hour display reappear instantly.

The 42.50 mm silhouette in white or 5N red gold is delicately accentuated by two newly invented types of setting sql server developer. The “flake” setting adorning two versions of the Marguerite watch is an elegant interpretation of the snow-setting technique. One hundred variously sized diamonds appear to be randomly sprinkled over the bezel and lugs just like delicate flakes. The “champagne” setting on the other versions also features a hundred diamonds of different sizes. Concentrated on the lower part of the case, and then freely set here and there on the upper part of the bezel and the 12 o’clock lug, the diamonds are reminiscent of sparkling bubbles that give the entire creation a light, airy appearance.

The Marguerite watch is equipped with a self-winding Manufacture movement whose double barrel ensures an impressive 72-hour power reserve. The sapphire caseback provides an opportunity to admire the movement’s oscillating weight sculpted like a daisy and set with eight rubies 적룡마제 다운로드. In order to play, the watch must be placed in a horizontal position and accompanied by one or two undulating movements. The oscillating weight then turns for a few seconds prior to standing still. The ruby closest to the red-lacquered heart provides the response – “yes” or “no” in the center. In the center of the oscillating weight, a flower-shaped circular satin-brushed and diamond-polished element serves to conceal the ball-bearing mechanism. This motif is echoed by the petal-like fluted motif adorning, as well as the flower-shaped screws securing the strap. A watch to be loved passionately in all five versions – white or 5N red gold, “flake” or “champagne” set – each available in 30-piece limited editions young translator.

JAQUET DROZ Petite Heure Minute Thousand Year Lights

Jaquet-Droz_J005014211_Petite_Heure_Minute_Thousand_Year_Lights_Front_Back_650x365The concept of Time becomes poetic, leaving the free space on the dial open for artists to express boundless creativity. A true master painting, the creation of the Petite Heure Minute saw the most stunning skills of the Jaquet Droz Ateliers d’Art come to life: enameling and miniature painting, by way of dazzling settings and astonishingly realistic sculpting and engraving. The craftsmen of the brand known by its twin stars looked to an ancestral Asian technique to create this enchantress version of the Petite Heure Minute. A flowery landscape in shimmering colours was inspired by the “Najeon Chilgi” method, which involves mother-of-pearl encrusted lacquer. Its golden age was during the Goryeo dynasty (10th-14th centuries), when aristocratic ladies would order sumptuous jewelry boxes requiring months of work. On the Petite Heure Minute Thousand Year Lights, the centre of the 35 mm or 39 mm diameter case offers itself to the gaze of a pastoral bouquet. The ephemeral beauty of its wild and free flowers is frozen in place forevermore, brought to life in a display of sheer mastery. The richness of colours comes to light as their tenderness is revealed with a touch of intense red, while the silver glimmer of leaves goes hand in hand with minute details only made possible through the mother-of-pearl intaglio. The mother-of-pearl is first lacquered, then polished with great care. The craftsmen engravers then bring out the minute volumes through hand painting, imbuing these floral tableaux with incomparable shine and the mirror effect of light glistening upon them.With eminently feminine refinement, the watch is available in five versions, each limited to 28 pieces, in generous red or white gold cases, set with diamonds or without and equipped with a 68-hour power reserve.
