Description

"Quintessence" celebrates the oval shape in its purest form. A world of beauty to be explored by the art lover.

The deliberate choice to incorporate a minimal size movement allows the three-dimensional works of art housed inside this watch to flourish freely, without compromise, thus enabling the watch case to preserve the pure lines and elegance demanded by the designer. The absence of a crown emphasizes this desire for purity.

The Quintessence Melody in Blue collection

The collection "Melody in Blue" explores the floral and sculptural world, a free and playful interpretation of nature in all its splendor.

This majestic edition comes to live in a 3dimensional microcosm with a thickness of 5mm under the glass in the center, creating the impression off  the pistils trying to escape from the watch.

With the enamel “grand feu” on silver instead of white gold, the artist wanted to accentuate the light reflection of the blue enamel on the carved petals.

Each petal, each pistil is carved by hand without the intervention of modern techniques, respecting the traditional and ancestral craftsmanship.
