CHRISTOPHE CLARET

MAGICAFIORE


Magicafiore, an exceptional and one-of-a-kind ladies’ watch was presented this year. This unique floral marvel features a 3D depiction of the cherry blossom. The hand engraved petals bring the piece closer to reality. The blue enameled center of the flower features a pistil topped with a blue sapphire and stamens represented by 28 emeralds, each topped with a white gold rod bent and adjusted by hand. Two hand-engraved and green lacquered dragonflies rotate and flutter with passing time - a mechanical marvel coupled with aesthetic splendor. And another secret- One press on the pusher at 2 o’clock makes the numbers disappear to reveal the phrase specially created for Only Watch: “Pour l’amour de la vie” (For the love of life)! The sapphire caseback provides an opportunity to admire the movement’s oscillating weight sculpted like a flower and set with eight precious stones (4 emeralds and 4 blue sapphires). At will, the owner can indulge in the “He loves me... he loves me not” game, the simplified English version of daisy petals, that typically feminine distraction invented in the Middle Ages. An epitome of romanticism?
