With the Diamond Flower Amytis, Swiss luxury watch brand Perrelet is offering a collection intended for women with a penchant for elegance and refined style.
The Diamond Flower Amytis offers an imaginary journey through the hanging gardens of Babylon, created by Nebuchadnezzar in tribute to the beauty of his wife, Queen Amytis of Media, whose name inspired this feminine collection.
The Swiss watchmaker Perrelet stands out through the originality of its dial enlivened by the Double Rotor function patented in 1995 that has become a signature feature. This particular model now admirably embodies its expertise in highlighting both watchmaking techniques and artistic crafts.
Launched last year in black or white dial versions, the Double Rotor Amytis appears clothed in delicate shades such as ivory or blue.
This watch with its 36.5 mm-diameter case is equipped with Manufacture Caliber P-181-H, an automatic Double Rotor movement. One of its twin oscillating weights is visible on the dial side, while the rotation of the perfectly synchronized rotors drives the barrels and ensures more efficient winding.
The dial-side oscillating weight is an authentic work of art involving several artisan-style skills. The finely crafted petals and leaves are expertly cut out, rhodium-plated, sandblasted and decorated with precious materials such as diamonds (16 totaling 0.067cts) and mother-of-pearl, thereby endowing this rotor – an important component of automatic movements – with great originality.
The oscillating weight thus appears to dance gracefully across the dial in step with wrist movements. The two variations both feature delicate pastel shades. The sky blue version features a sunburst blue dial graced with a contrasting white mother-of-pearl half-moon along with yellow Roman numerals converging towards the center and lending an original touch of character; while the beauty of the version with an ivory-toned strap is magnified by a white mother-of-pearl applique against a light blue background bearing violet blue Roman numerals.
The Diamond Flower Amytis thereby pays fresh tribute to Perrelet’s Double Rotor and appears fitted with white or blue alligator straps or a steel bracelet depending on the dial color, secured by a steel folding clasp.
