Unveiled last spring in a men’s version to mark the 130th anniversary of watchmaker SAINT HONORÉ, the TOUR EIFFEL watch is now available in a smaller size, for women. Once again, the bezel has been hewn from a metal part of the famous Parisian monument, making this mechanical watch a unique collector’s piece. It gives women the opportunity to wear a symbol of France and Gustave Eiffel’s technological genius on their wrists.
Built in 1889 to celebrate the Paris Universal Exposition as well as the centenary of the French Revolution, the Eiffel Tower dominates the capital, standing 324 metres tall. The most iconic edifice of Paris attracts some seven million visitors every year, all captivated by its beauty and technical brilliance: the 2,500,000 rivets, 20,000 gleaming bulbs and 18,000 pieces of metal structure create an incomparable silhouette.
Nicknamed the “la Dame de Fer” (“Iron Lady”), “la Grande Dame” or “la Dame de Paris”, the Eiffel Tower is a majestic presence on the new women’s watch from SAINT HONORÉ, powered by an automatic calibre. Not only has a fragment of one of its metal girders served to craft the bezel, its pale brown colour and characteristic lattice structure serve as motifs on various parts of the watch such as the dial and crown, the oscillating weight in the movement and the strap clasp.
Elegant and different, this limited edition of 500 pieces, among the 1,885 pieces in the range, marries geometric shapes and curves in reference to its historical provenance and the glamorous spirit of the age. Pairing a sparkling polished steel case with an immaculate white leather strap, or a warm rose gold case on a brown leather strap, the new TOUR EIFFEL LADY watch was born to appeal to devotees of fine mechanisms.
The watchmaker also offers a version with an “Eclair effect TM” dial. This SAINT HONORÉ innovation reproduces the sparkle of diamond paving.
