Presented at Baselworld 2013, the Double 8 Origin Black Rose Chrono by 88 RUE DU RHONE is an attractive ladies watch that stays true to the modern and chic personality of the new Swiss watch brand created by the Bernheim Brothers.
The shiny black 35mm case proves to be a powerful foundation while the rose gold Roman numerals and hands alongside diamond indexes distinctively spring to life from the jet black dial like flowers in bloom.
The 88 RUE DU RHONE Double 8 Origin Black Rose Chrono offers ladies a refined shiny black PVD chronograph style that is alluring with the richness of rose gold accents. With a slightly larger case size and deep black hue that is evident throughout, the piece brings forth a dark, ominous power while emanating beauty and refinement.
Six effervescent diamonds serve as indexes on the dial beside rose gold Roman numerals adding a subtle “ladylike” hint. Three subdials, marking the seconds, hours and minutes, are found on the black canvas that is the dial with rose gold pushers for each that burst to life from the case.
