Swarovski Rose-Gold Octea Sport Watch (Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Since its first watch collection was launched at Baselworld in 2009, Swarovski has created exceptional timepieces that are full of character. These include the “D:Light” watch, winner of the 2010 Red Dot Award for Best Product Design and now available as a Limited Edition in rose-gold; and the “Elis”, a striking piece in Crystal Mesh that truly captures the essence of the Swarovski brand.

Swarovski has now revisited an iconic watch that has become a fixture in all collections – the “Octea Sport” – and introduces it in plated rose-gold. Already available in a wide variety of shades (white, black, orange and red), the watch now reaches new heights of elegance in the rose-gold version. No woman could resist the enchantment of this truly unique time-piece.

The beautiful design and flawless mechanism of the original have been reproduced in the new edition of this exceptional timepiece. The rose-gold-plated “Octea Sport” combines stylish colors with the finest materials, and uses contrasting rose-gold and black crystal resulting in a stunning effect.

The faceted Jet Hematite crystal bezel rotates in one direction only. Beneath the anti-reflective sapphire watch glass, the luminescent hands glide over each index and Arabic numerals, all of which are hand-applied in rose-gold plating.

The date indicator is placed at the three o’clock position, not far from the Swarovski emblem: the rose-gold-plated Swan Logo Mark adorns the dial, which features a metallic black sunray pattern and matt black outer ring. The Swan Logo Mark also appears on the rose-gold-plated crown with glass cabochon – a luxurious finishing touch to the sophisticated look of this piece.

The impressive 39 mm rose-gold-plated case protects the ETA watch movement, making this watch a perfect combination of functionality and aesthetic design. The faceted strap attachments, the faceted buckle, the customized back with engraved Swanflower® motif – these are the precious, refined details that make this piece so recognizable and unique.

Complementing the bezel, which is created from a single piece of “Soleil” cut crystal, six Jet Hematite crystals have been set by hand in the watch strap, and their perfect facets punctuate the tone-on-tone rubber.
