For ladies of exquisite good taste and refinement, Waltham introduces a stunning new watch named Lady Baroda, inviting them to carry echoes of a legend on their wrist.
Probably best known as the centrepiece of the Moon of Baroda necklace worn by Marilyn Monroe for the promotions of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, the spectacular 24.04-carat canary-yellow pear-shaped Moon of Baroda diamond is named after the famous city in the Indian state of Gujarat where it was originally found.
It will also be featured in the dazzling “Diamond Divas” exhibition held in Antwerp in 2008 and designed to convey how diamond jewellery is a “perfect reflection of the personality, glamorous lifestyle and tastes of the owner”. Like other exceptional gemstones, the Moon of Baroda diamond is surrounded by fascinating myths, and it is believed to bring success and fortune to its lucky owner.
Waltham now encapsulates all the glamour and mystery of the Moon of Baroda in a magnificent model featuring nested pear shapes within a radiant case in 18K rose gold or 18K white gold, surrounded by a hand-facetted sapphire crystal.
Driven by a quartz movement, the dainty hour and minute hands move gracefully around shimmering white mother-of-pearl or black enamelled dial is adorned with 11 diamond hour-markers and a diamond-set 12 o’clock numeral. The pear shaped motif is also reflected in the jewelled bezel and lugs, while facetted winding-crown extends and reflects this precious and inspirational theme.
With the strap available in a set of white crocodile leather and rubber for the white mother-of-pearl dial versions, and black crocodile leather and rubber for the black enamelled version, Lady Baroda is the perfect way for ladies of exquisite good taste and refinement to continue building their own legend.
