The BLUE PLANET, a masterpiece in the GrandeMetre series launched in 2014 by renowned Swiss watchmaker DOXA for the 125th Birthday of the brand, is now also available in stainless steel. Equipped with an original and innovative world time display, this exclusive timepiece is a vivid illustration of the expansive global vision of DOXA.
The rounded curves of the case blend perfectly with the smooth stainless steel lugs, expressive of the GrandeMetre’s elegant style. Inspired by “Blue Planet”, the dial’s sparkling blue aventurine portrays the magic of a starry night and at the same time symbolises the perpetuity and infinity of time and space. A delicate engraving of our planet is etched on the blue mother-of-pearl on the case back, displaying an immaculate portrayal of the blue planet that echoes with the design on the dial. The classic overall design makes this timepiece a true marvel to the eyes as well as a collectible item.
Practical and innovative features mark this timepiece: two outer rings on the dial, one marked with the names of 24 time zones and another with the markings of 24 hours could be easily adjusted to tell the time anywhere in the world. By turning the crown at 2 o’clock (engraved with the Earth), the time zone ring can be rotated to display the world time. The 24-hour ring, combined with the centred orange arrowed hand, will display the hour in 24-hour scale while the gold hour, minute and second hands display the time at the origin. This ring is adjusted via the crown at 4 o’clock (engraved with DOXA).
Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, the DOXA BLUE PLANET is now also available in stainless steel (ref. D181SBU). It is equipped with a top-quality automatic movement, sapphire crystal and a black crocodile leather strap. Six screws on the back of the case secure the watch’s exceptional water resistance to 50 metres.
