The case features 278 brilliant-cut diamonds and 22 sapphires set in 18K rose gold or stainless steel finishing. A true visual feast for the eyes, the dial is also adorned with another 67 brilliant-cut diamonds and 92 sapphires, along with meticulously hand-painted applique numerals.

In terms of technical capabilities, the self-winding movement with bidirectional rotor system has a power reserve of 38 hours.

The timepiece is complemented by matching hand-sewn alligator straps. Aside from the classic navy, feminine colours such as pink, purple and red also feature in the collection.
