19th Century French painter Claude Monet’s masterpiece, “Water Lilies,” brings to the world the infinite imagination and also provides Borel’s designers a romantic inspiration. For the brand-new dial in 2014’s Danaus Series, the elegant water lily (Nymphaea helvola) quietly blooms on the surface of mother of pearl, where the unique colorful glow shining with the flower creates a dreamy and elegant visual art with great admiration.
Ernest Borel boldly uses the fragile mother of pearl as dial material; due to its property of easily wear, when making such fine works on small and crispy mother of pearl, every step of carving and painting requires watchmakers’ delicate and precise craftsmanship. The unique colorful glow on each petal has embodied the aura of the ocean and the sun, shining the fresh and elegant water lily. The simple design of big three hands gives the watch a classic and agile look and a clear view of the charming flower.
The black mother of pearl surface with rose gold bezel is decorated with dark purple leather straps, bringing out the brand’s superior character of luxury and elegance; the white mother of pearl with silver stainless bracelets shines with dreamy glow and looks gentle and lovely.
