Swiss luxury watch brand Blacksand created unique Continuity Ocean model on 15th anniversary of Bal du Printemps, a project which funds research in paraplegia in Switzerland and around the world.
Housed in a pink gold case set with diamonds, a turtle entirely made and engraved by hand makes us travel in a sea of enamel. The Blacksand Genève 1999, self-winding caliber, provides a poetic reading of the time. With an indication of the jumping hours at 12 o’clock and the dragging minutes at 6 o’clock, this little gem plunges us into a world where only the water window at 3 o’clock lets us know if we swim at night or in daylight.
The various decoration techniques used imbue these watches with a distinctive aura. A unique stage setting featuring cloisonné grand feu enamelling, meticulous gold cutting, the subtle integration of colored motifs, create a stunning backdrop for this tale to be experienced with elegance and genuine awareness.
The 15th Bal du Printemps, organized by the International foundation for the research in paraplegia was held on 21 Mar 2013 at the “Halle Sécheron” (Geneva), gathered 450 participants for a gala evening under the theme “Under the Ocean”.
