Coming from the timeless phrase “C'era una volta” (“Once upon a time”), VOLTA evokes this mysterious feminine duality in a glamorous and sophisticated timepiece. Bertolucci went to explore the atypical ways of asymmetrical architecture to equip VOLTA with two different movements, each displaying both hours and minutes, allowing the simultaneous display of two time zones on separate sub-dials.
Beautiful in its elegant and suggestive shapes, VOLTA inspires the finest night of a Mediterranean evening where jewelled watchmaking takes place. It is the perfect combination between the Italian Riviera, a provider of ceaseless inspiration, and Switzerland, the technical expert. The soft bezel ring, diamonds set, with asymmetrical attaches, protects a dial which is reminiscent of the wave's flow washing its diamond-like foam onto its shores of opalin. Inspired by the mysterious alliance of the Latin women's sensuality and elegance, VOLTA will seduce all female adventurers demonstrating their femininity as they desire.
